I came up with this keto corn dog muffins recipe sort of by accident. I was making keto cornbread, and my kids were begging for hot dogs while we were stuck at home… and I thought, what about low carb corn dogs? I didn’t have any sort of molds, but I did have mini muffin tins. And so, these mini corn dog muffins were born!
The first time I made these keto corn dogs, I didn’t even have my camera handy. But they were so good that I snapped a photo on my phone – it went crazy in our keto support group and I knew I had to post them on the blog ASAP.
They make a perfect snack, meal, or even appetizer… for the kids and for you! Serve them up with some keto-friendly ketchup and mustard.
How To Make Keto Corn Dogs
Here’s how to make these adorable keto corn dogs the easy way, using a mini muffin tin:
- Prep mini muffin pan. Line the muffin pan with 24 cupcake liners.
- Make the keto corn dog batter. In a medium bowl, make 1/3 the recipe of this keto cornbread batter. (You don’t have to calculate, just use the amounts on the recipe card below.) It will be thick.
- Assemble keto corn dog bites. Transfer the batter into the muffin pans. Cut hot dogs into 6 pieces and insert one piece into the center of each mini muffin.
- Bake. They are done when top is golden brown.
