Cinnamon Walnuts With Choc Chip Muffins

From Happy Home Baking, I saw this Cinnamon Walnuts and Choc Chips Muffins recipe and told myself, must bake this muffin asap cos' it uses oil instead of butter and moreover, my hubby can have them for supper when he watches the Euro 2012 matches.

Anyway, that night, he wasn't watching the matches, so we had these muffins for breakfast.  I had to warm up the muffins in the oven [@ 100 C for 15-20 minutes].  The muffins tasted fragrant with the cinnamon, nutty with the  walnuts  and sweet from the choc chips.  
Easy to prepare if all the ingredients are available.  I believe the batter can even be prepared the night before if you planned to have them for breakfast the next day and too many chores to do.
(makes 9 regular size muffins)
140 ml milk
80 ml canola or corn oil [I reduced to 70 ml]
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla essence
200 gm plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
100 gm castor sugar [I reduced to 80gm]
1/8 tsp salt
50 gm walnuts, coarsely chopped
50 gm chocolate chips
  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together milk, oil, egg and vanilla extract until just combined.
  2. Sieve flour, baking powder and ground cinnamon into another mixing bowl. Add sugar, salt and stir to combine.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. With a rubber spatula, fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir only until the ingredients are just combined (Note: stop stirring once the flour incorporates into the batter, but do check that there is no pockets of flour at the bottom of the bowl).
  4. Reserve 1 tablespoon each of the chopped walnuts and chocolate chips.  Gently stir in the rest of the chopped walnuts and chocolate chips into the batter. Do Not over mix the batter. The finished batter should appear thick and lumpy.
  5. Spoon batter into paper muffin cups, fill it to about 3/4 full.
  6. Sprinkle top with the reserved chopped walnuts and chocolate chips.
  7. Bake in preheated oven at 200 Degrees C for about 20 - 25mins or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.   Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.

Was contemplating whether to post this recipe but after tasting it I decided to keep this recipe. It's a lovely muffin but must serve warm.
