Chocolate Chip Surprise Muffins

1 cup milk
1/3 cup canola oil
1 egg
2 cups King Arthur white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

Whisk together the milk, oil, and egg. Stir in flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and chocolate chips just until the flour is moistened and everything is combined.

In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, sugar, and milk.

Add a tablespoon of batter to each muffin cup. Place one teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture in the center of each muffin and then cover with another tablespoon or so of batter.

Bake 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from muffin tin immediately and cool for a few minutes on a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
