If your house is anything like mine, our bananas seem to get ripe faster than we can eat them. But that’s never a problem because my family loves when I bake banana bread or muffins, so the riper, the better! When I made these Almond Flour Banana Cream Cheese Muffins for my family, they couldn’t get enough. Some other healthy banana muffin recipes to try are these Maple Pecan Banana Muffins and Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins.

Cream Cheese-Filled Banana Muffins

These banana cream cheese muffins are loaded with ripe bananas and stuffed with cream cheese and sugar. They come out so incredibly moist they almost fall apart. These muffins are also gluten-free, as I used almond and coconut flours instead of wheat.

Almond flour which is made from ground almonds is incredibly nutritious. Especially rich in vitamin E and magnesium, two important nutrients for health according to Healthline.

What is the secret to making moist muffins?

I have a few secrets for making moist banana muffins.

  • Almond flour has more fat than wheat which makes these muffins moister than wheat flour.
  • The cream cheese in the middle adds a lot of creaminess.
  • Ripe bananas give these muffins moisture while also reducing the fat and sugar needed.

How to Store, Freeze, and Reheat Banana Muffins

Muffins are great for meal prep. One batch makes 12 cream cheese-filled muffins, which will last in the fridge for four to five days. You can also freeze muffins by individually wrapping them in plastic wrap or foil and storing them in a zip-locked bag or container.

You can pull the muffins out of the freezer as you need them. Just place in the refrigerator overnight and warm in the microwave for about 20 seconds. You can also microwave them straight from the freezer for a little longer.

Variations:

  • Top with chopped almonds, pecans or walnuts or mix in half a cup of nuts for banana nut muffins.
