Strawberry Cheesecake Graham Cracker Muffins

Greetings from San Francisco! I made a short trip out here for the long Labor Day weekend to help Jason get settled into his new place. We ran errands all day, stocking up at Costco and Target, my two favorite places in the world. Then we came home and wrote Jason’s name on everything we bought. The beauty of having housemates, right?

Anyway, I know it’s Labor Day and all and I should have some sort of BBQ recipe but since it’s #MuffinMonday, I have some awesome muffins for you guys instead. They’re filled with chunks of graham crackers, cheesecake filling, fresh strawberries and of course, a graham cracker crumb topping. Yes, it’s a cheesecake in muffin form, which gives you the BEST excuse to have cake for breakfast. Enjoy!

Here’s how you make this:

Let’s first make the awesome graham cracker crumb topping. You can throw some graham crackers into a food processor and pulse a couple of times until they start to resemble crumbs.

Next, we’ll make the cheesecake filling by whisking together some softened cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla. If the cream cheese is softened enough, you don’t need a mixer for this. I popped mine in the microwave for about 20-30 sec and it was just fine.

Now let’s make the muffin batter by combing the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Then comes the wet ingredients – milk, oil, egg and vanilla.

As always, we’ll pour the wet to dry ingredients and use a rubber spatula to make sure that we don’t overwork the batter.

Now let’s assemble the muffin mixture into the tray in the following order:

  • Spoonful of batter
  • Few pieces of strawberries
  • About 1 tablespoon cheesecake filling
  • More batter to cover the filling
  • Few pieces of strawberries
  • Sprinkle of crumb topping

Easy enough, right?

And finally, we’ll pop these babies into the oven for about 15-17 minutes.

Let them cool on a wire rack before digging into these bad boys. The cheesecake filling is too hot to eat right away. Bummer, I know.
