Banana Cream Cheese Muffins

Banana Cream Cheese Muffins

Muffins made with banana, cream cheese, and walnuts are called Banana Cream Cheese Muffins. Muffins made with bananas, cream cheese, and a touch of sugar.

We have been working hard to get ready for Halloween, which is tomorrow.

This year is Baby G’s first Halloween, and he’s going to celebrate it in style. We didn’t dress him up or take him trick-or-treating the last two years because he was too young to understand anything.

He is two years old and can’t stop talking, so we think it’s time for him to participate in some Halloween festivities. He’s going to be the Neverland Pirate.

Everyone at his daycare is expected to bring a Halloween-themed treat for a potluck tomorrow.

These banana cream cheese muffins are a big hit with the kids in his class. Before the party, I ate one of these muffins from the oven and decided to bring it along with me.

Bananas and cream cheese are always a crowd-pleaser.

And perhaps now that the mom is out to bribe all of Baby G’s little friends with some perfect muffins, he’ll become even more popular!

Baked Bree, whom I had the pleasure of meeting earlier this month, inspired these banana cream cheese muffins (I also met with Gina at Skinny Taste ). After seeing Baked Bree’s recipe, I immediately saved it to my recipe box.

Banana nut muffins are famous, but try cream cheese instead of the regular spread.

For the second time this week, I’ve made these banana cream cheese muffins for a party tomorrow, and I’m having a hard time resisting the temptation to devour them all myself.

Those scents are just too irresistible!

Whatever your reason for making muffins, this is an excellent recipe that you should definitely experiment with.

The food won’t stop coming from them, I can assure you of that.

  6. Fill each muffin/cupcake liner two-thirds of the way full with the muffin batter. Each liner should have a well-formed in the middle.
  7. Fill the well with the Cream Cheese Filling.
  8. Fill each liner about 3/4 of the way with batter. Place a few walnuts in the middle of the top.
  9. Set the timer for 25-30 minutes and bake until golden brown. Before storing in an airtight container, transfer to a wire rack to cool.
