Friends, are you ready to try my world famous Cream Cheese Banana Bread? Okay, maybe it’s not quite world famous just yet, but it’s good enough to be! My family loves it, it disappears practically as soon as I pull it out of the oven. It’s that good!
Yes, Cream Cheese Banana Bread is a little bit different than your typical banana bread, but I can honestly say that it is better. The cream cheese in this recipe adds a moist, rich flavor that enhances that delicious banana bread taste that you already know and love. You will not be disappointed to put a spin on this classic, I assure you!
I love to bake several loaves of this Cream Cheese Banana Bread to keep on hand for when the kids decide that they need a snack. As I mentioned earlier, this bread doesn’t last long once it’s baked so I like to double up my recipe and have extra. You can freeze it for later too!

- Slice it up and store it in an airtight container in the freezer for a quick snack or breakfast later on!
