These Strawberry Banana Muffins are the perfect on-the-go snack or breakfast! Greek yogurt and bananas keep these muffins super moist, and strawberries make them fruity and super flavorful.
I keep feeling like I’m finally going be settled, but it’s taking a lot longer than expected. Having a messy, unpacked house is not good for my focus, and I just need to organize the whole darn apartment before I can truly focus.
Thankfully, I’m starting to get there! I finally have a desk (actually a DIY drawers + kitchen countertop + table legs = desk/photography area) and it allowed me to put sooo much stuff that had sat, sadly on my floor, waiting for a home. Having floor space is a novelty I haven’t had yet in the apartment, and I’m relishing in the final box being gone from my room.
Less clutter means more focus for baking, blogging, writing, and all the other good stuff. Though baked goods have been sporadic in my new apartment, these muffins were infinitely better than the last batch I tried (an epic failure you may have seen if you follow me on Snapchat…my username is bakeritablog).
The banana strawberry flavor combination that immediately reminds me of childhood. My dad always made my sister and I strawberry banana smoothies, and they were my favorite! Recreating those homey, summery flavors in a soft, sweet, moist muffin seemed only natural.
These muffins get moisture from many places. First, anything with bananas is gonna be soft and sweet. That’s only ramped up by a bit of vegetable oil and Greek yogurt (I used strawberry flavor). This trio of ingredients will result in super tender muffins!
To add a bit of heartiness, I added in some oatmeal. It adds a nice texture and some whole grains to the mix, which make these perfect for breakfast. Best of all? These come together in less than 10 minutes, so you will be enjoying fresh muffins in less than 45 minutes. They also make your house smell delicious – baking is always the best thing to do in a new apartment :)
Strawberries are one of my favorites to bake with, and I could eat tons of them on their own. They add such a delicious burst of fruity flavor to these muffins, and they’ll be gobbled up by any strawberry lovers. Hope you love them!
