Although this recipe calls for plantains they can by hard to come by. Bananas work equally well in a pinch.
These are delicious! I modified it to be gluten-free using Bob's Red Mill all purpose GF flour and guar gum, but otherwise stuck to the recipe exactly. They are delicious as muffins, and I also tried just putting it in an 8x8 dish and baking it as cornbread - they still came out moist, sweet and flavorfull Yum! - 22 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These are wonderful!!!!!! I modified the recipe to make it gluten-free and mashed the bananas in the Cuisinart (they are harder than a regular banana). They are moist and just the right amount of sweetness. Thank you - 01 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Thanks for sharing such a creative recipe. I love plantains and corn muffins, genius idea. I made these without eggs and use 1/3 cup drained crushed pineapple & 2 cups mashed (almost black ripe) plantains. If you use soy milk and earth balance this would be a vegan muffin. - 14 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
