Banana Bread with Guava Cream Cheese

I am sure you don’t think of guava and cream cheese as two ingredients in banana bread. This banana bread recipe calls for swirls of guava cream cheese that will have everyone begging for more.

Some of the words I use to describe this sweet treat are moist, sweet, and delicious unique flavors. I hope you have as much fun making this as I did.

  • This step is optional. I did not have walnuts, so I used cashews instead. Add 1 cup of cashew to a ziplock bag. Used a rolling pin or solid instrument to break them into small pieces.

  • Add half of the crushed cashew to the banana bread and the remaining half on top of the loaf batter.

  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Use a dinner knife to run along the edges of the banana loaf. Carefully remove from bread from the pan and continue cooling on a cooling rack before cutting.

  3. I have a serious dislike of anything that tastes and smells like bananas, but I’m really interested in your Guava Cream Cheese Swirl. I really want to know what this cream cheese teases like. Can it be made without the the cashew nuts?

    Out of interest, can bread be made with another fruit instead of bananas? I’ve only ever heard of banana bread, which got me wondering

      UnwantedLife, cream cheese is similar to the texture of thick yogurt with the flavor of cheese. You may add any nut of choice or you can leave it out. I have a new recipe that I will be posting soon; you are going to like it, so stay tuned.

  4. You’re right. Definitely flavours that I wouldn’t have put in the same recipe! However, it looks and sounds delicious and is definitely something I want to try before summer’s out.
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. It’s clear my banana bread game needs upgrading and this is the upgrade. There isn’t any ingredient noted, I wouldn’t get onboard with. Especially welcome the oats. That guava cream cheese however… Eye opener
