Banana Cream Cheese Muffin Recipe

banana cream cheese muffins

I always have bananas on hand and inevitably some get overly ripe before they get eaten. It gets boring making the same old banana bread each time I want to use up the ripe bananas instead of throwing them away. So I decided to try something a little different and came up with the recipe for these Banana Cream Cheese Muffins. These are a fun and yummy alternative to regular banana bread.

Banana Cream Cheese Muffins


2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 tsp baking soda

3 ripe bananas

2 eggs

1/4 cup whole fat yogurt (fat free yogurt or buttermilk would work great too)

6 tbls unsalted butter, melted

2 tsp vanilla

Cream Cheese Filling:

5oz cream cheese, room temp

1 egg

1/4 cup sugar

2 tbls flour


1.) Preheat oven to 350. Line two 6 cup muffin tins with paper baking cups.

2.) In a medium bowl mash the bananas.

3.) In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda.

4.) To the mashed bananas add the eggs, yogurt, melted butter and vanilla. Whisk together.

5.) Pour the banana mixture into the dry ingredients and stir to combine.

6.) In the bowl of a mixer add the cream cheese filling ingredients and blend well.

7.) Put two tablespoons of banana batter in the bottom of the muffin cups, top with one tablespoon of cream cheese filling and top that with two tablespoons of banana batter.

8.) Bake for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.

This recipe is delicious! Muffin is moist, fluffy yet pleasantly dense like all quick breads we know and love. In the batter itself, I used 1/2 cup sugar instead of 3/4 cup. I can imagine how much more delicious it’d be with more tasty sweetness to complement the banana, but out of habit, I did use less sugar. Filling was not too sweet either.

Glad I saw this tutorial on YouTube, came straight to the blog :)
