Confusing. Is this recipe for mini muffins or regular size muffins?

Hi, the recipe is for regular size muffins. :)

I'm looking for nutrition notes on this recipe!

Hi there! Sorry about that, we updated this recipe to reflect the nutrition at the bottom. Thanks!

What a great idea to make coffee cake into muffins. This will be good for breakfast or as after school or after work snacks. I bet these will smell delicious while they are baking. Can't wait to make these next weekend. I was looking for a recipe to take to a work brunch. These will be a hit!
