Tips – Easy Strawberry Banana Muffins

  • The tips below are designed to help muffin “novices” and/or people with limited baking experience.
  • Try to use fresh & organic strawberries if you can. Organic fruit & vegetables are usually much less exposed to potentially harmful pesticides.
  • Optional – Cut some strawberries into slices and add a thin slice to the top of the batter in each muffin cup before placing the muffin tray in the oven. This will help to make your strawberry banana muffins stand out “visually” after they have been baked.
  • Use RIPE bananas for improved taste. Ripe bananas are soft and usually yellow with small black spots. Hard yellow/green(ish) bananas are too starchy and have less banana flavor.
  • Make sure to use 2 large bananas for this recipe (unlike our classic banana bread muffin recipe which uses 3 large bananas). The strawberries add extra moisture to this muffin recipe and thus you do not need 3 large bananas. In addition, the strawberry chunks add more moisture “variability” to this muffin recipe because the strawberry juice is not trapped in a nice round berry “shell” (i.e. blueberries).
  • In case, you like to use cups versus banana “sizes”… 2 large-sized bananas equal roughly 1 to 1 1/8 cups of mashed bananas (not sliced bananas). Of course, banana sizes can vary greatly… and my version of medium and large-sized bananas may differ from yours! If you need to convert other ingredient measurements (i.e. cups to tablespoons), you should visit our baking volume calculator & conversion table.
  • There are a variety of ways to pour the batter into the muffin tray. For example, you can scoop with a spoon (while using another spoon to scrape off the batter into the muffin tray), use a small cup and spoon, use an ice cream scoop with a trigger release, use a homemade “pastry bag” to squeeze the batter into the muffin liners, etc.
  • Use paper baking cups (liners) if you want to easily extract the strawberry banana muffins from the muffin tray. Paper baking cups also result in less mess on your fingers when removing the muffins.
  • For larger muffins, you can buy trays designed for “jumbo” muffins (versus trays for standard sized muffins). This recipe should generate roughly 8-12 jumbo strawberry banana bread muffins.
  • If you have a problem with a muffin recipe, please make sure that you are following the recipe exactly (i.e. using the correct oven temperature), using the correct amounts of ingredients (i.e. don’t eyeball the measurements versus using a measuring cup or accidentally add a tablespoon when a teaspoon is called for), using the correct ingredients (i.e. baking soda/powder versus yeast or all purpose flour versus bread flour), etc. Please don’t “wing” things with recipes.
  • In addition, you should always try to use relatively fresh baking soda & powder for the best results. For example, using baking soda from an open container (that has been deodorizing your refrigerator for months) may lead to subpar results. Old & hard baking soda/powder may lead to rising problems and/or leave small bitter clumps in your strawberry banana muffins.
