Banana Bread Cup

Dairy Free Banana Cheesecake Filling

  • 8 oz dairy free cream cheese**, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup mashed banana, almost ripe
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • Chopped pecans (optional)


Banana Bread Cups

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and coat a cupcake tin in nonstick spray.
  2. Follow the instructions on the Simple Mills box for the banana muffins.
  3. Pour the batter into the cupcake tin and bake for 10 minutes.
  4. Take the muffins out of the oven and let them rest for exactly 2 minutes.
  5. Then, using the bottom of a round tablespoon, press a well into the center of the muffins. It should ALMOST reach the bottom of the muffin, but don’t press all the way through.
  6. If you don’t have a rounded tablespoon, you could also use the bottom of a small spice jar or something that is a bit smaller than the diameter of the muffins.
  7. Rinse your utensil between each muffin to prevent it from sticking. If it’s really sticking, spray it with some nonstick spray between each muffin.
  8. Also, if the edges of the muffin get a little roughed up in the process, carefully pat them down with your finger tips.
  9. Continue to bake for 10 minutes then let them cool completely before filling.

Banana Cheesecake Filling

  1. Mix all of the ingredients using an electric mix until smooth and creamy. Spoon it into your cooled cups and spread it on top.
  2. Finish them with your favorite toppings then place them in the refrigerator for about 2 hours to set. Enjoy!


  1. *Use the store locator on their website to find it at a grocery store near you!
  2. **If you don’t care to make these dairy free, you can swap this with regular cream cheese for the same amount. Omit the coconut oil.
