Try this banana strawberry bread recipe – a twist on a family favourite!


  • 2 tablespoons (90g) reduced fat plain yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 medium bananas, roughly mashed
  • 2 – 3 strawberries, sliced and quartered


  1. Pre-heat an oven to 160 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to combine yoghurt, oil, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and eggs.
  3. Add mashed banana (I like to leave a few good chunks) and mix through well. Fold through flour and strawberries, without beating. If the mixture is a little dry (which it might be if your bananas are small), add a little extra oil.
  4. Place the mixture in a greased loaf tin and place in pre-heated oven for 45min. Turn the oven off an allow bread to sit in the oven for a further 15mins before removing and placing on a wire cooling rack.

Pre-slice and freeze for a perfect lunchbox treat.

  • Yoghurt in cakes and breads is such a lovely ingredient. I like the addition of strawberries too :)

  • Ooh, I absolutely love this recipe. There is such an abundance of strawberries at the moment, so this is a great recipe to buy and use them.


  • Never thought to put strawberries in our banana bread which is a family favourite. With strawberries so prolific and cheap at present sounds like a good time to try. Thanks for this.
