Corn Dog Muffins

Low carb corn dog muffins? Oh yes, they do exist! This recipe contains zero corn and only 4 net carbs per muffin, but they taste like a corn dog!

I’m pretty picky about hot dogs and can only do them a few times a year, but when a craving for a hot dog hits, it must be satisfied.

I usually grill my hot dogs until very charred on the outside and then top them with lots of mustard and dill pickle relish. 

Every now and then I’ll slice up a hot dog and add it to some of my low carb chili along with some diced onions and cheddar – it’s like a chili cheese dog and it’s so good!

Lately, though, I’ve been craving a corndog and I knew that my low carb cornbread (with no actual corn) would be perfect for this. 

These little corn dog muffins were a big hit with my daughter. We both ate them for lunch -she dipped hers in ketchup (weirdo!!) and I just enjoyed mine plain. 

Either way, I think you’ll like this little recipe – perfect for lunch or a fun snack.

How to make corn dog muffins: 

Because corn is so high in carbs, we’re skipping it altogether and using coconut flour instead. Not to worry though – the texture and flavor is very similar to a traditional cornbread so I think you’ll be pleased!

To start, you’ll whisk together some melted butter, eggs, and cream until smooth.

Add in a little coconut flour, sugar substitute, salt, and baking soda. 

The mixture will thicken up as you stir it – coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid.

Fold in some sliced hot dogs and scoop the mixture into a greased muffin tin.

Bake these up and then get ready to dig in!

The next time I make these, I think I’m going to serve them with a little of my low carb cheese sauce – I think they’d be so good dunked in melty cheese!

  1. This really looks amazing and want to make. Does anyone think this can be adapted to use jumbo, Texas sized muffins? A normal 6-count. Thanks in advance!

      I mean, let’s be real…when there’s no camera, I just hack away. 😉 Hope you enjoy these!

  3. These were so good we just made them for lunch with sparingly sugar free ketchup and mustard. Because of the coconut flavor hubby wants chocolate muffins with the same recipe with some coconut flakes and sugar free chocolate chips. Let’s see how these turn out.

  4. I’m making this tonight and I know it’ll be delish cause it’s basically the same as the tamale pie. Great recipe!

      I’m sure you could use almond flour, but you’d need much more of it. Normally a recipe needs 3-4x the amount of almond flour, but I haven’t tested it on this one.
