Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Muffins

Makes 12 large muffins

3 cups flour

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 1/2 cups milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs - beaten

1/2 cup oil or melted butter (I like olive oil for baking)

1 12 ounce package mini chocolate chips

large grained sugar - I use Wilton's White Sparkling Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 12 large (a.k.a. mammoth) muffin tins with muffin liners. Stir together dry ingredients and make a well in the center. Blend milk, eggs, butter or oil and vanilla together and pour into well. Mix batter thoroughly and fold in chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout batter.

Divide batter evenly between muffin tins and top each with sugar. Bake until tops spring back when touched lightly - about 20-25 minutes.
