Tomorrow is Halloween and I’m sure everyone is busy and gearing up for trick or treat. Baby G is celebrating his first Halloween this year, well, I mean he is actually going to dress up this year. The last two years, he was too little to understand anything so we didn’t dress him up and he didn’t go trick or treating. But now that he is two years old, can’t stop talking and loves candies, we think it’s time for him to have some Halloween fun. He is going to be the pirate of the Neverland.

His daycare has a big Halloween potluck tomorrow and everyone is going to bring a treat. I decided to bake these delicious banana cream cheese muffins for the kids in his class. I baked these muffins last week and as soon as they were out of the oven, I took a bite and decided that this is the item to bring to the party…banana plus cream cheese will be a surefire hit at the party. And perhaps Baby G will become even more popular now that the mom is out to bribe all his little friends with some really good muffins!

Banana Cream Cheese Muffins

These banana cream cheese muffin recipe is adapted from Baked Bree, whom I met earlier this month (I also met with Gina at Skinny Taste ). When I first spotted the recipe on Baked Bree, I immediately saved it. I know most people love banana nut muffin but imagine your regular version with cream cheese…they are the best combinations ever. I have just baked these banana cream cheese muffins again for tomorrow’s party and I am seriously having trouble not to eat them. They smell too good and tempting!

In any case, this is a recipe that you should totally try out if you love muffins, or if you wish to feed your kids with some nutritious breakfast or afternoon snack. I guarantee that they will not stop eating. For more baking ideas, check out my baking recipes.

      You can try, but mashed banana and apple sauce may not have the similar consistency thus I am not sure the correct amount to use as substitute.

      Wud luv to try this recipe. However, how many grams or ozs are
      1-1/2cup flour, 1 cup sugar.
      Is the cream cheese the block type or the spreadable cheese. Thank you for your help.

      • Rasa Malaysia

        @Et: 1 cup of flour is approximately 125g (depending on humidity), 1.5 cup flour is ~187.5g.

        1 cup of sugar is approximately 200g.

        We always use the block cream cheese for baking.

          Thank you for your quick response. Would appreciate if for future recipes you also indicate the grams besides the cup measurement so that I need not have to trouble you again with this conversion again.

    Hi Bee, thank you for sharing this recipe. Banana and cream cheese are two of my best mix favourites. How time flies to see that Baby G has grown so fast – 2 years old. I can’t wait to try these yummy muffins for my kids.

    Thank you, Bee, for such a great muffin recipe! I had some bananas hanging around, and your recipe sounded so good that I made it last night. I did have to substitute some ingredients, though: chocolate cream cheese (Kraft Philadelphi Indulgence in milk chocolate) and cashews, broken into bits. They turned out fluffy and moist. Thanks again!

    Hi Bee, Thanks for this wonderful recipe, I tried baking it twice, they tasted superb, but is not nice looking, it collapsed in the middle, must I used 12 cups baking pan? I used 6 cups baking pan and made 12 – 18 muffins.

    Hi! I’ve never written on a website, but I’ve made SO many recipes that sound AMAZING, and they ALL ARE! I can’t find the Banana Cream Cheese Bread of yours that I have made no less than 10 times, it is FANTASTIC and moist and yummy, made it again today and give it as gifts, the Green Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake I made today is SENSATIONAL, the Chicken dishes all that I’ve made are just superb. Thank you! :)

    • According to an online article, these are the possible causes of muffins sinking:
      – Oven temp too low
      – Batter was mixed excessively
      – not enough liquid
      – not enough baking powder
