banana cream cheese muffin recipeGetting back to reality after a lovely long weekend. It was a crispy, rainy, weekend and I could not have asked for more perfect weather. I spent a lot of time baking in the kitchen, listening to music, and my new obsession – podcasts. Heavenly. My husband celebrated his 36th birthday and we had a little party for him at TopGolf. It is like a cross between a driving range and a bowling alley. With buckets of beers and chicken wings. It was so much fun. I cannot wait to go back.

I am heading to Disneyland this week with Dole Bananas and I could not be more excited. It sort of feels wrong to go to Disneyland without my children, but I will get over it I am sure. I am looking forward to seeing some blogger friends that I have not seen in awhile and spend some time in my beloved California. I am sure that I will learn all sort of interesting things about bananas while I am there, and will be sure to share them when I get back. In the meantime, I made a banana muffin with a cream cheese filling to get myself in the mood. These were delicious and the cream cheese filling sends these over the edge.

    Wow, these look so good! I’m loving the double dose of cream cheese…

  7. Tiffani says:

    I just tried to make these. Are you sure the recipe should read 1/4 Cup each baking soda and baking powder? They tasted like pure salt. The batter rose like it had yeast in it, very fluffy and full of bubbles. Once baked they collapsed.

  8. These sound sooo heavenly! Enjoy California…but just a warning, you may not find crisp rainy days around here! :P

    (P.S. If you’re looking for more podcasts, my boyfriend loves Stuff You Should Know.. very interesting, and they have episodes on any topic you could think of!)

  9. Natalie says:

    Is there really 1/4 cup each of baking powder and baking soda? Seems like a lot for 12 muffins. Just thought I better double check. Making these right now. :0)

  10. Bailey says:

    Does this really call for a quarter cup each of baking soda and baking powder? I just made these and if you could see what they looked like! My baking powder might be a little on the old side, but I thought that just might make them flat! Hmm.

  11. These muffins look so enticing! Yummmmmm.

  12. These look really delicious! I love banana, and adding in the cream cheese and walnuts… oh YUM!

    I just made these for my co workers since we have a meeting tomorrow and I signed up to bring something for breakfast (even though I calorie count and cannot enjoy :( ) but I did test the batter and I gave one to my mother to test and she said she likes these and they are good…that means she will ask to me to make these at some point ha ha. Easy recipe and not a lot of ingredients plus amazing taste. Thanks Bree…I always brag about your blog. :)

    Was looking for a new recipe for a bunch of very ripe bananas and this popped up on my search. THANK YOU. Can’t wait to try many, many more of your recipes!

  23. Becky says:

    Hey Bree, I was looking for a recipe to use up my very ripe bananas, and these were an absolute hit! I even made them twice!

    I have a question… both times I’ve made the filling, it came out really watery and runny (like watery pancake batter). Is it okay to take out the egg?
