Ingredients

Muffin Tops

  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 oz softened cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons half-and-half cream

Instructions

Muffin Tops

  • Preheat oven to 425F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk mashed banana, butter, sugar, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla until smooth. Add flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt to bowl and gently stir until batter is just combined.
  • Scoop batter by 1/4 cupfuls and place 2-in apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake muffin tops at 425F 5 minutes, then reduce heat to 375F and continue baking an additional 10-12 minutes until muffin tops are golden brown and spring back when lightly touched. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • In a medium bowl with a handheld electric mixer, beat softened cream cheese on high speed until completely creamy, about 2 minutes. Beat in butter and powdered sugar and continue to beat an additional 2 minutes until frosting is thick and completely creamed. Slowly beat in vanilla and half and half until frosting is creamy and spreadable. 
  • Spoon frosting onto cooled muffin tops and serve immediately. Enjoy!
