Cream Cheese Banana-Nut Bread

Cream Cheese Banana-Nut Bread created by Hey Jude

This recipe is from Southern Living magazine and is not your ordinary banana bread. The texture and flavor are so rich and creamy. Your family will love this treat. I always use reduced fat cream cheese.

    This recipe is awesome. The bread is light and delicate, I didn't expect that with cream cheese in the recipe. I love it! It's worthy of 5 stars.

    My tweaks: •I only had 2 medium bananas, equaling 1 cup mashed. So to finish up the last 1/2 cup I needed, I added 1 4oz cup of Cinnamon Applesauce. •I added approx 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. •I didn't have enough pecans, so I used the 1/2 cup bag of pecan chips I had and the 1/2 cup bag of chopped walnuts.
