Chocolate Chip Muffins

This is a family favorite in our house.  One batch is gone in a day. 
Recipe is from

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup light-brown sugar, packed 
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt 
2/3 cup milk 
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled 
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla 
1 (11 1/2 ounce) package milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts or 1/2 cup pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease twelve muffin cups. 
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt. 
In another bowl, stir together milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla until blended.  Make a well in center of dry ingredients. 6Add milk mixture and stir just to combine.  Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. 
Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.  Now bake for 15-20 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in center of one muffin comes out clean.  Remove muffin tin to wire rack.  Cool for 5 minutes.  Remove from tins to finish cooling.  Serve warm or completely cool. 
These muffins freeze well.
