Slightly sweet and lightened up with Greek Yogurt, Thee Strawberry Banana Muffins are simple to make and super delicious!
These make the perfect make-ahead breakfast or healthy snack for kids (and adults too!).
The greek yogurt and mashed bananas make this bread super moist and the strawberries add an unbelievable amount of sweetness. It is so easy to make your own breads and muffins.
These muffins are fantastic. I love all types of muffins, but these and my Blueberry Crumb Muffins are my favorites. Ok, I also love these Pumpkin Gingerbread Muffins and Peanut Butter Protein Muffins too!
These would all be even more delicious with some Apple Chai Latte, Chamomile Latte or some Low Carb Bulletproof Hot Chocolate as well.
Why You Should Make These Strawberry Banana Muffins
By making your own, you know EXACTLY what ingredients you are eating (and this recipe just so happens to be all good stuff!) These yummy muffins have no butter in them at all and you'd never even know it.
I have made these with different fruits too. You can use whatever is in season and what you have in the house.
I have made these with raspberries, all mixed berries, blueberries, you name it. Next I want to make these with yummy blackberries.
But if you do use strawberries, try to use organic since strawberries are on The Environmental Working Group's Dirty Dozen list. You can even use organic frozen strawberries in here too.
I used whole what flour to add some more fiber in here, but you can definitely use an all purpose flour if you'd like. Remember, the white flours have less fiber and are a bit more processed. Just something to keep in mind.
I love baking and cooking with Greek Yogurt as most of you know since I wrote The Greek Yogurt Cookbook. These muffins are a perfect example of the moist texture that Greek Yogurt lends in baked goods.
I also have made these in heart shaped muffin tins that came out adorable. Just a note for you, it was a silicone mold that cooks slightly different than a steel pan.
You an even see that the edges are slightly darker than the rest of the heart shaped muffins. They are still adorable but just keep checking them after 30 minutes or so.
My kids loved these for Valentine's Day. Yes, of course they still got chocolate but this was an adorable surprise for their breakfast.
You all know that I love freezer friendly meals and snacks and these freeze really well as well as long as you keep them in airtight freezable plastic bags. I like to freeze them individually so if I just want one muffin I can easily just take it out, leave it on the counter to defrost I 10-15 minutes.
I don't know what I would do if I didn't have all of my recipes able to be frozen. It is such a huge time saver!

Strawberry Banana Muffins
- 1 ½ cups white whole wheat flour
- ¼ cup unrefined sugar
- ½ cup raw honey
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 3 large, ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup diced strawberries
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease muffin tins.
- Start by combining flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
- In a separate bowl, mash bananas with a fork until they are almost like a liquid.
- Add eggs, honey and sugar… mix thoroughly. Next add the Greek yogurt. Whisk until everything is well combined and there are no lumps.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Next, fold in the fresh strawberries.
- Pour batter into prepared muffin tins. Put into the oven and bake for 35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
- Transfer tray to a cooling rack and (try to) let the muffins cool for at least ten minutes before removing.
Yum! Everyone loved these tasty muffins! They did not last long at my house! I am going to make some more this weekend.
So happy you liked them!
These turned out so moist! I like how easy they were to make. I like how you used the cute polka dot liners too. This would actually great to make for Valentine's Day!
Yes, I agree! Thank you!
I was looking for a healthy recipe to use up some ripe bananas I had laying around and these muffins were perfect! The Greek yogurt makes them so moist and delicious and the diced strawberries add the perfect pop up sweetness. Yum!
I always have ripe bananas on hand! Glad you like them!
Just made these and didn't have enough bananas so I added in applesauce to substitute the remaining needed. Unfortunately my muffins collapsed but the flavor is amazing! I will try this recipe again with the correct amount of bananas next time. I would love to be able to add applesauce again but not sure how to do that, any suggestions?
Hi Jenna! Are you trying to substitute something for the applesauce? Maybe the eggs?
No I had run out of bananas and so I was trying to add applesauce to fill in the rest of what I needed from the bananas. My son loved them! I really thought he wouldn't go for them.
I plan to make these soon! Do you use frozen or fresh strawberries?
I hope you like them Michelle! I usually use fresh but I am sure frozen would be just as delicious!
When do you add the honey or do you eat the muffins with honey?
I apologize Paula, I just added it in. Thank you for letting me know 🙂 Hope you like them!

This sounds really good Lauren! Being a baking novice, can I omit the pastry flour and just use all flour? I'm not sure what it would do to the recipe.
Yes I believe you can use all purpose flour equally! 🙂 Let me know how it comes out!

Will do, it's on my to make list for when I get back 🙂
