Cream Cheese Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Cream cheese makes these chocolate chip banana muffins unbelievably soft, and they're chock full of chocolate chips!

Adding cream cheese to just about anything makes it better.  Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins are no exception.

This recipe is actually based on one of my very, all-time favorite existing recipes on Something Swanky– this Banana Crumble Cake, which is seriously moist and fluffy and satisfies every sweet and crunchy, soft and carb-y craving known to man… in my humble opinion ;)

I could seriously eat that cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

So I made it a muffin. Because if we call it a muffin… that makes it a breakfast food, right?
