Plantain Chocolate-Chip Muffins

So I'm a muffin addict and I've been using up some plantains I bought, so here are plantain & chocolate chip muffins.
  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1 1/2 cups wheat germ
  • 4 tspns baking powder
  • dash salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup chopped plantain
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Take your plantain, chop it up, and toss it with the sugar to soften. If you're on top of the game, do this a half hour or more before you start the rest of the stuff so they have time to soften in the sugar. Start by mixing your dry ingredients together in a bowl, then put the butter, milk, and plantain in a food processor or blender and zap it up smooth. Mix the eggs in with the wet stuff (pulse quickly or just mix in with a spoon), then dump the wet stuff in with the dry stuff, and mix just until combined. Portion out into a greased muffin tin, makes 12 muffins. Bake fifteen minutes or so at 350ºF or until a knife/toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of a muffin.
