Muffins Cake Mix Style

This is an invention that turned out great. Can be made in a 9-inch square pan or make in a 12 cup muffin pan.
These are so good for breakfast, with butter or honey.
These are so good and crunchy as if there were nuts inside.Family approved.

  2. Pulverize the corn chips of your choice in the blender- just until fine not paste.
    In your large mixer bowl combine cake mix,the ground corn chips,(if you don't have corn chips you could use 3/4 c. corn meal- but it will change the crunch),baking powder, eggs ,lemon juice, and olive oil.
