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.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.
