Raspberry lovers, this one's for you! If you like the taste of raspberries and cheesecake, then you will love these creamy raspberry cheesecake muffins.

This fresh raspberry cheesecake muffins recipe combines delicious bananas and raspberries with creamy cheesecake to create extra-moist muffins. Along with ripe bananas, the fresh raspberries add a pop of color and nutrition (check out the health benefits of raspberries and the health benefits of bananas).

The secret to these moist muffins is the creamy sweet mascarpone cheese and cream cheese that create the special cheesecake texture. Here's your simple shopping list: mascarpone cheese, cream cheese, overripe bananas, brown sugar, eggs, milk, vanilla extract, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and fresh raspberries. The chopped nuts are optional. The ingredients bake up into creamy muffins that taste like individual raspberry cheesecakes.

Recipe Notes

  • If you'd like these muffins to be gluten-free, use gluten-free flour.
  • I used overripe bananas, which makes the muffins extra sweet and moist.
  • You can use your milk of choice in this recipe (I used almond milk).
  • I added half a cup of chopped walnuts, but you could use pecans or no nuts at all.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Here's how to make it:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the softened mascarpone cheese and cream cheese and mix well.
  2. Add the mashed bananas and stir to blend.
  3. Add the brown sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
  4. In another mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until mixture is combined. Do not over-mix.
  6. Gently fold in the raspberries. Gently fold in the nuts, if using.
  7. Fill greased or lined muffin tins until nearly full with batter.
  8. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and set.
  9. Allow the muffins to cool a bit before serving.
