I've baked this recipe over and over and it's always a winner! I like to make about half a portion more of just the banana bread part so that you just get a hint of the cream cheese filling. If the top starts to burn around the 30 minute mark, just cover it with some foil halfway through baking!

Wow! This is such an indulgent take on banana bread... which I'm totally up for!

As stated by basically everyone else who commented, this recipe is incredible! It is such an easy concept but truly such a great idea that I never thought of before! I think this could be taken one step further and even spark the idea of a banana bread cheesecake! Definitely something I'm going to try in the future.

What an amazing recipe! This looks so delicious I can't wait to try it. This is a nice switch from regular banana bread, yet a great way to use up extra ripe bananas! This would be great to enjoy with a morning tea or coffee, as a snack, breakfast or even dessert! YUM!

I've baked brownies and cookies before using coconut oil in place of margarine and it's really great. The coconut flavor is indeed subtle, as you suggest Edmund. Plus, it's easier to work with oil because it mixes quickly with the other ingredients. I like the cream cheese layer in this recipe also. It sounds like cream cheese frosting on the inside of banana bread rather than on the top!

I always like being introduced to new ideas, like the use of coconut oil instead of regular canola or vegetable oil. It sounds like it would impart a nice subtle touch to the flavor of the bread. I never would have thought about the cream cheese layer to give it a sort of cheesecake layer. I wonder if a drop of banana extract added to the cream cheese would work. I need to give it a try when I make this.

This sounds very moist and delicious. I will have to give this a try. I make banana bread often because we can't eat the bananas fast enough before they get too soft. I think I will try my recipe for banana bread and use this cream cheese filling recipe and see how it turns out.

I like buying those 99 cent bags of bananas and freezing them just so I can bake with banana whenever. Just stick them whole in a bag and when you want to bake, take out what you need and let thaw. Snip off the end and squish out the fruit. Mashing made simple. I love the cream cheese ribbon going right through the middle of the slice. My husband won't be needing to butter this quick bread.

This really is a unique kind of bread with two things I love, banana and cream cheese, it looks really moist as well. Is there a risk of the cream cheese melting into the bread at any stage? and then making the bread more of a mush (I know not a very technical term)

Wow, this is absolutely delicious. I made this because no one ever has time for breakfast around here. Usually nobody eats at all. I found that when I made plain banana bread a few weeks ago, that everyone grabbed a slice before leaving for the day. I found this recipe, and I knew I had to try this spin on banana bread. This was perfect! Everyone loved it. They now ask for a slice of this before leaving for the day. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Banana bread and cream cheese? That's a new combination in banana bread! This looks like a lot of ingredients and a bit more complicated than the banana bread recipes I usually use. But it does look really good and creamy! One slice would be filling enough. (Until the next day!)

Who was the amazingly creative person who thought of this...awesome! I never would have put the two together. I always want to make banana bread but then I usually end up eating most of it. I think this way my son would eat some. Not sure if I would end up with any. Can't wait to try this!

Sounds delicious! I'd also love to try the cream cheese with pumpkin bread, too.

Really appreciate the list of alternate ingredients. This sounds delicious want to make it tonight. I have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, I don't have soft cream cheese in brick form the cream cheese I have is in the tub. I am assuming I can use water displacement to measure it out. Just am uncertain--is 4 ounces of cream cheese equivalent to a half cup? If so, I'll fill one 8-oz measuring cup halfway with water and spoon in the cream cheese until the water level reaches the 1-cup mark. Sound correct?

I can't wait to try this!
