100% Whole Grain Strawberry Banana Muffins

Delicious and moist banana muffins studded with strawberry chunks and with a little streusel on top! 100% whole grain and made healthier.

100% Whole Grain Strawberry Banana Muffins

Today I’m guest posting over at Carla’s Confections while she’s down in Orlando having fun. And this won’t be the last you hear of / from her! She’ll be posting over here next month while I’m in the US.

I made strawberry banana muffins. With streusel. And I know y’all like your streusel. And they’re fruity and summer-y. As much as I love stuff like peanut butter and chocolate, in May and during the summer, I just want fruity stuff. We only have apples, oranges and bananas for most of the year so once we have something else around, that’s all I’m eating. The exception being the bananas in these strawberry banana muffins!

100% Whole Grain Strawberry Banana Muffins

As always, these are made healthier. 100% whole grain, too, if you want them to be. If you’re not into whole grains, you can use all white flour instead. Whatever makes you happy! Carla doesn’t post a lot of whole grain goodies so I felt like I had to make something that really doesn’t taste whole grain (which is pretty much what I always do!) because I didn’t want to scare anyone anyway. And obviously I was going to post something whole grain! I have to spread the word that whole grain doesn’t have to and shouldn’t mean cardboardy and yucky!

So although these are made healthier, if you’re watching your calories, perhaps leave out the streusel. Streusel is always bad news when it comes to calorie counting. ;) But it’s so worth it!

100% Whole Grain Strawberry Banana Muffins

So what other spring and summer goodies would you like to see? I usually don’t like baking with strawberries (something about the mushiness doesn’t appeal to me) but loved them in these strawberry banana muffins!

    How can I make the gluten and grain free? Thanks!

      It’s unfortunately not possible to convert a wheat-based recipe to a grain-free one. Or it is, but requires reworking the whole recipe. I have a ton of grain-free recipes you might like, though. :)

    These were absolutely delicious, even without the streusel.

    Hello Erin,
    I am so excited I found your site! I love cooking and baking,
    mostly healthy recipes. I haven’t tried your recipes yet, as
    at this time I am trying to fit to the dress I bought for my
    son’s wedding. All your recipes look delicious and I can’t wait to try them! Thank you for an amazing blog!

      Oh no. I am so sorry for the slow reply! And on such a nice comment. I hope that your son’s wedding went well and you can now enjoy some of the recipes that you find here. :) Thank you so much for your kind comment! Sorry again for the slow reply. I was in the US for the first three weeks of June and it seems that some comments fell through the cracks. Hope you’ll come back and see this one day! :)

    How you get such beautiful domed muffin tops using 100% whole grains, I just don’t know! I think I gotta try these out just to see how it’s done, haha. Plus you had me at streusel! Going to check out the recipe now :)

      These aren’t that domed. Go check out Sally’s muffins to some really domed muffins! I’m so jealous of them. ;)

    I am always looking for new ways to bake with strawberries, and these look awesome! You can’t beat a streusel-topped muffin, especially when it’s whole grain and more easily justified :)

      I like how you think, Tracey! Plus there’s fruit. It’s basically health food, right? ;)

    Oh mannnnn, strawberries go exquisitely well with the nuttiness of whole grains. That streusel looks amazing!

      You know what’s weird is that this is one of the first times I’ve done whole wheat with strawberries. I’m just not that big of a fan of mushy strawberries. Here I don’t mind! And yeah, streusel. What would we do without it? ;)
