So does your family have one of those crazy months where it seems like there is a birthday and or holiday every other day?

Well, June and December is that for us.

In June alone we have my birthday, Mike’s birthday, my father-in-laws birthday, my nephews birthday, my in-laws anniversary, AND Fathers Day!

Its hard to remember at times…

Did I buy a card for this person? What about a present? Which day is it again?

Geeshh…

I mean I like to plan, don’t get me wrong. But a month with 4 birthdays, an anniversary, and a holiday… I’m exhausted just thinking about it, and so is my budget!

On a side note, I would just like to say that I am so proud of myself for this recipe {patting myself on the back}. I had bananas that were starting to not look so hot anymore and a huge tray of strawberries that needed to be eaten/used up in the next two days and that ladies & gentlemen is how this recipe came about! I love it when I don’t have to throw away food! Don’t you?

Description

Moist & healthy Strawberry Banana Muffins made with whole wheat flour & loads of fresh strawberries + bananas. Perfect for a grab-n-go breakfast!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 bananas, mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of strawberries, finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12-count muffin tin or two 6-count tins with a cupcake liner in each divot. Alternatively, you can grease the muffin tin(s) with cooking spray.
  2. Place bananas into a large bowl. Use a fork to mash them until just very small lumps are left.
  3. Add maple syrup, egg, coconut oil and vanilla extract and use a fork to combine.
  4. Add flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking soda. Use a spatula to mix until wet and dry ingredients are completely combined.
  5. Add in the strawberry and gently fold.
  6. Fill each divot in the muffin tin(s) 3/4 of the way full.
  7. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean or with a couple loose crumbs.
  8. Remove muffins from the oven and let them rest in the pan for 3-5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack. You can enjoy them warm or cool them to room temperature.

  1. Absolutely yum!
    Easy to make – don’t be put off if the batter seems a little thick when you mix it – it works out perfect.
    Keep well in the freezer too.






  2. I just made these and they were fantastic. My husband is a chef and is often hard to please but he gave these rave reviews. Only change I made was substituting canola oil for coconut oil. Next time I will add even more cinnamon and some pecans too. Thanks so much!

    1. Love the coconut oil switch I do it all the time, it gives a nice coconut flavor!

      So pumped that you and your chef husband enjoyed these, totally made my day Rachel! 🙂

  3. I love all your recipes! And so does my 1year old he is sooo fussy! But I have made the lemon bread and just made these muffins and he loves them! Not to mention they are healthy!






    1. Yeah!!! So awesome Nicole and major awesomeness on the fact that your 1 year old likes everything too! That can be tricky at times with their developing palates. 🙂

      You are so sweet, thank you for the dropping in to leave me a note. Made my day girl!

  4. Made these and they were awesome. So light and airy. I love how you could see the fruit. I used plain yogurt instead of vanilla to cut a bit more sugar out. I meant to add some walnuts – since i love walnuts with strawberries and bananas but they were left on the counter… lol… oops. Blogged about it here: http://stephaniesazkitchen.blogspot.com/2014/07/whole-wheat-banana-strawberry-muffins.html with a link back to your recipe. Definitely making this again! 5 minutes in the stand mixer, 20 minutes in the oven = super easy breakfast!






    1. Oh.. yeah! SO glad to hear it Stephanie. Yeah, this is definitely one of my favorite muffin recipes that I have made for the blog so you picked a good one to try out. Love the additions that you made. 🙂

  5. Well Happy Birthday to everyone 🙂
    I’m pinning these healthy muffins because I love whole grains and fruit.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. haha.. thanks Julie! 🙂 And thank you for the pin, hope you enjoy those muffins as much as we did. 🙂

    I LOVE baking with white whole wheat flour! It makes the BEST baked goods, ever! And these muffins are calling out to me. I love a good banana muffin and obviously adding strawberries to the mix could never hurt! Strawberry season is the best isn’t it? 😉 I’d love at least 10 of these gorgeous muffins with my coffee this morning. Pinned!

    1. I know right!? I just started using it recently and love it! If I had more of these muffins left over I would totally share… but alas I ate them all. 🙂 thanks for the pin girl!

    April is our big birthday month. We go through did you get a card, I need to get a card all the time. It just gets crazier as the family grows. I have everything in a calendar, just too much to remember 😀
    These muffins look delicious! I love strawberry everything. I also love using greek yogurt and www flour in baked goods. They always come out great!

    1. Agreed and families definitely continue to get bigger! I’m just glad I have a small family otherwise we would really be in trouble! 🙂

      So glad you liked the muffins Cindy!

  8. I stopped at a local farm stand today that had strawberries (which is super early for Colorado). My kids will love these for breakfast! And if I haven’t missed it, hope you have a great birthday!

    1. Yeah, great way to use up those strawberries. And… soooo jealous that you have a farm stand near ya! Thank you on the birthday wishes sweet friend!

    Hahaha it’s funny you mention the birthday/holiday thing because my wife is always so amazed at how many birthdays and other parties that occur in my family. She doesn’t get it because her family is so tiny and far away from where we live. My family is ALL within the same county and we celebrate everything hahahaha.

    Strawberry banana is one of my fave combos ever! Love these.. Pinning!

    1. haha.. the more parties the better. Just hard to remember them all sometimes. 🙂 My husbands family is big too!

      Thanks for the pin Chris!
