1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, both sugars, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a separate large bowl, add the eggs, melted butter, sour cream, milk, lemon juice, oil, and vanilla; whisk well to combined.
Fold the wet ingredients into dry ingredients and, using a rubber spatula, and gently fold the ingredients together. To avoid over mixing, stop stirring when you can still see the slightest trace of the dry ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin pan, filling the molds up all the way to the top. Sprinkle with sparkling sugar, if desired.
Bake at 425 degrees for 8 minutes, then, keeping the muffins inside the oven, reduce to 375 degrees and continue baking for another 14 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
Cool in the pan, placed on a wire cooling rack, for 15 minutes. Remove muffins from the pan and serve warm or at room temperature.
*Canola Oil, Vegetable Oil, or Liquified Coconut will work.
*Wrap any leftover muffins tightly in saran wrap and store at room temperature for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw muffins overnight in the refrigerator or on the counter.
