Chocolate Chip Muffins

I'm making these muffins before tomorrow's outing. We've had some early mornings, and we'll have two more. I think chocolate chip muffins are the perfect remedy for jet lag, hangovers, homesickness, and being up way too early :)
These muffins are super easy, and you probably already have all the ingredients you need in your pantry! The sugar crust on top adds an extra sweet twist.

Kosher salt- 1/2 tsp
Milk- 1 c
Grapeseed oil or extra virgin olive oil- 1/3 c
Vanilla extract- 1/2 tsp
Egg- 1
Mini Semi-sweet chocolate chips- 3/4 c
1. Mix 3 tbsp sugar and the brown sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
2. Combine rest of sugar, flour, baking powder, chocolate chips and salt in a medium bowl.
3. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, vanilla, grapeseed oil and milk. Pour into flour mixture and mix by hand until incorporated.
4. Fill cups 2/3 full and sprinkle with sugar mixture. Bake at 375 degrees F for 18-20 minutes (times vary by oven, check yours at 15 minutes- minis should be done after ~10).
