Cream Cheese Filled Banana Muffins

It seems like every recipe I share involves bananas. This will only make the second recipe that I've shared, but still. It involves bananas. Maybe that's because I always by a bundle of bananas with the intention of eating them, but instead I watch them brown on my counter and choose to eat a spoonful of peanut butter instead.

We will just call it a win win though because if it wasn't for those bananas browning then I wouldn't have searched Pinterest for a yummy recipe containing bananas. And I wouldn't be sharing this freakishly amazing recipe from How To: Simplify with you today.

If you enjoy moist, lick your fingers, I can't get enough of these treats, than this is the recipe for you.

Makes 12 muffins

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tbs. vanilla extract

Cream Cheese Filling
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg

Crumb Topping
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbs. butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 375F. Grease muffin pan or line with liners.
2. Combine 1 1/2 cup flour, baking powder and salt.
3. In a separate bowl mash bananas, then beat together bananas, sugar, egg, melted butter, and vanilla.
4. Combine banana mixture with flour mixture until moist and completely combined.
5. Spoon batter into muffin cups (leaving some batter to cover filling for each muffin).
6. Create cream cheese filling by mixing the 3 ingredients. Pour a tablespoon of filling onto the batter in muffin cups.
7. Top muffins with your remaining batter. (Doesn't have to completely cover filling).
8. Make topping using for to mix together ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter.
9. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from the center.

Eat your heart out.
