Banana Cream Cheese Muffins



Cream Cheese Swirl

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pan with liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until well combined. Set aside.
  3. In large bowl, whisk together bananas, sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in egg, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Slowly whisk in flour mixture until no lumps remain. Fold in pecans. Fill prepared muffin tins 3/4 full with batter.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add in sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and beat until well combined.
  5. Top each muffin with about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese mixture and use a toothpick to swirl into batter. This will not look smooth, but it will bake up much prettier. If your cream cheese mixture is too thick, you can beat in the 1 tablespoon of milk to thin it out if needed.
  6. Bake muffins for 16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Serve fresh. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. They are best at room temperature or even slightly chilled.
