Pretzel Chocolate Chip Muffins

Into sweet and salty?  Grab one of these muffins quick!
Ground and broken pretzels in the batter and a pretzel streusel on top along with chocolate chips inside the muffin.  
For the streusel combine;

1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup each ground and broken pretzels
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
6 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

For the muffins, whisk:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup ground pretzels
1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup whole milk (or buttermilk)
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup canola oil
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Pretzel or other coarse salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a 12-cup muffin pan with liners; coat with nonstick spray.

For the streusel, combine 1/2 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup ground pretzels and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon.  Stir 6 Tbsp. butter into dry mixture, cover and chill.

For the muffins, whisk together 1 cup flour, 1 cup ground pretzels, chocolate chips, baking powder, salt and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon.  Whisk together milk and 2/3 cup sugar until sugar dissolves.  Add eggs, oil, 4 Tbsp. butter and vanilla; stir into flour mixture.  Let batter sit 2 minutes, then divide among muffin cups.

Squeeze streusel into clumps; top muffins with it and sprinkle with coarse salt.  Bake muffins until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean, 17-19 minutes.  Let muffins cool in pan 10 minutes.
