Cheesecake Stuffed Banana Bread


Ingredients

Banana Bread

  • 4 very ripe spotted bananas
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup unsweetened plant milk
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Cheesecake Filling

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. In a food processor, add all of your cheesecake filling ingredients and blend until completely smooth. Adjust the sweetness and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, roughly mash the bananas. Add the brown sugar, oil, vanilla, and milk. Whisk well to incorporate.
  4. Into that same bowl, sift in your flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and use a rubber spatula to mix until combined.
  5. Spray a 9×5 loaf pan with coconut oil spray to prevent sticking. Add 2/3 of the banana bread batter into the loaf pan and even it out. Then add in your cheesecake filling, in the middle but make sure to leave a border of banana bread around the edges so the cheesecake filling doesn’t go completely to the edge of the loaf. Top with the remaining 1/3 of banana bread batter, and smooth out.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for about an hour, until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 20 minutes before removing from the loaf pan and serving. Ideally, let it cool completely before cutting into it.
