  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup sour cream or milk or yogurt
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (over-ripe ones are the best)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • Cream Cheese Filling:
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 oz softened cream cheese
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • Topping:
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF/180ºC. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan with butter and dust with flour. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix the egg, sugars, butter, sour cream, and vanilla. Add the mashed bananas into the mixture.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and mix. Set aside.
  • Make the Cheesecake Filling: In a large bowl, mix egg, cream cheese, sugar, and flour.
  • Pour about ⅔ of the banana bread batter into the prepared pan, pour the cheesecake filling, smooth into corners, then top with remaining batter.
  • Cobine sugar and cinnamon powder in a small bowl and sprinkle on top of the batter.
  • Bake for about 50 mins. Baking times may vary depending on the oven, so keep an eye on the bread. Do the cake test by inserting a toothpick in the centre of the pan and if it comes out clean, it's done.
  • Allow to rest for 15 mins before inverting onto the cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Enjoy with your favourite coffee or tea.
