Strawberry Banana Bread

 No mixer required for this bread. 
Just a bowl and a spoon. 
It'll make you feel like Caroline Ingalls.
Strawberry Banana Bread
adapted from Simple Bites  

1 c whole wheat flour
1 c unbleached flour
3/4 c sugar
3/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
6 T unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 1/2 c mashed ripe banana, about 3 large bananas
2 eggs
1/4 c cream cheese (or yogurt or sour cream)
1 t  vanilla
3/4 c sliced fresh strawberries

In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.
In a medium bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients (except strawberries) and mix well.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the banana mixture. 
Stir until just combined. 
Gently fold in sliced strawberries.
Bake for 55 min. at 350 degrees in a greased loaf pan until golden brown and cooked through.
