- 1/2 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup canola oil

Add all of the reserved flour mixture, and beat just until it starts to mix, and then add the rest of the milk, beating just until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips.
- In a small bowl, mix together the 2 tablespoons sugar and a few sprinkles of cinnamon and set aside.
- Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin. You will be filling them almost to the top, a rounded 3/4 full. Sprinkle the top of each muffin with cinnamon sugar and bake in a preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until the tops are puffed up with a nice cracked top, they’re nicely browned and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Let the muffins cool in the tin for 5 to 10 minutes before removing to a rack to cool completely.
