I love having berries ready to eat in my fridge all the time – I’m going to be so sad once berry season is over! But even though I can eat berries until I’m sick to my stomach, I always end up with a few too ripe strawberries that look a little too yucky to eat – just like I always end up with bananas I don’t want to eat. This is when I make wonderful breakfast treats out of them! Strawberry banana bread, this time. With streusel. Because who would ever say no to streusel?!
For the bread:
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and baking soda. In a separate bowl, mash the 3 bananas with a fork until slightly chunky. Stir in the eggs, vanilla and salt. Add in the applesauce and agave nectar and mix thoroughly. Pour the banana mixture into the flour mixture, and mix until fully incorporated. Fold in the strawberries and nuts. Pour the batter into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper (or greased lightly) and smooth with a spatula.
