Banana Cream Cheese Muffins: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

These banana muffins were amazing! The first time I made them the cream cheese filling did not work out just quite right. However the flavor and texture of the banana muffins was so amazing, that I knew I needed to try again and I am so glad I did. Delicious banana muffins with a yummy cream cheese center.

Using a toothpick to test for doneness is difficult due to the cream cheese filling.
