Don’t be fooled by the word “corn” in your favorite muffin. You won’t be getting a serving of veggies from this sweet pastry. Cornbread muffins are made with carb-rich ingredients, like cornmeal, sugar and flour, as well as fatty components, such as eggs, butter and milk. All of these ingredients make cornbread muffins exceptionally rich in calories.

What's in the Mix

A small cornbread muffin that is approximately 3 inches across and 2 inches high, weighing around 65 grams, contains 200 to 210 total calories. Having a large cornbread muffin that is more than double the size, weighing nearly 140 grams, means that you’ll get about 425 to 440 calories. Roughly one-quarter of the calories are from fat, less than 10 percent come from protein and as much as 70 percent of the calories stem from carbs.
