Whole Wheat Cream Cheese Banana Bread

Is banana bread a favorite at your house? Then you will love this Whole Wheat Cream Cheese Banana Bread! Don't shy away from the whole wheat part, this bread is tender and delicious.

This is a very friendly recipe! As it turns out some folks are purists when it comes to their banana bread! Some love walnuts in or on top, some don't. Some love chocolate chip in their banana bread, some don't! Our own family has these same struggles! But this recipe makes it easy to please everyone. Making two loaves at the same time makes it easy to customize one or both loaves. 

But rest assured that Whole Wheat Cream Cheese Banana Bread is just as delicious without nuts or chocolate chips. And since it is so easy to make, those bananas that are a little too ripe for fresh eating don't stand a chance of being wasted. Actually, you might wish you had a few more to bake with...

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour, our recipe here. 
  • cream cheese
  • sugar
  • brown sugar, you can make your own!
  • oil
  • eggs

    1. I love that stuff, I have to be careful not to use it everywhere!

  3. We like chocolate chips in our banana bread!

  4. We buy a very similar sounding cream cheese banana bread from a local bakery and I heat slices and top them with peanut butter (protein to add to the fruit for a TOTALLY nutritional treat, LOL). I didn't even think about making it myself though. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

  5. This looks amazing! I can’t have cream cheese or eggs right now due to my nursing baby’s food intolerances but I’ll have to save this for when I don’t nurse anymore! For now, I enjoy these three-ingredient cookies!

    1. I remember those days, for me it was chocolate! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
