These delicious strawberry banana muffins are packed full of fresh flavors, and last about 5 minutes after coming out of the oven! They’ll be devoured FAST!
Nothing much makes me happier than a batch of muffins, fresh from the oven.
It’s the time of year that I start getting homesick. It’s warming up, the strawberries are beautiful and juicy in the stores and I feel like listening to Christmas carols. Why? Because where I grew up (New Zealand) the seasons are switched – meaning, around November/December is when it is warm outside and Christmas is coming.
Sometimes I play carols in the car, and daydream about being home with the rest of my family.
Other times I make muffins. Like these ones. Don’t you just want to grab one??

My son, H – is a huge fan of these. Fair to say he’s never met a berry that he didn’t like (or a muffin for that matter – they’re really cake for breakfast, which is a concept he can get behind).
We like them fresh from the oven, while they’re still warm. Broken open and letting the steam pour out. And then stuffing our faces; it’s just how we roll. In the picture below, he’s willing me to say “okay, H – go ahead and eat”.
He’s so patient when I want to shamelessly use him for my blog. He’s happy to do it, and be paid in muffins. It’s a pretty good deal for me! Isn’t he fabulous?
Variations on Fresh Strawberry Banana Muffins
- Use any kind of berry! Raspberries are especially good!
- Add a little lemon zest for a fresh burst of flavor.
- Mix in blueberries in half the batter, strawberries in the other – have the best of both!
