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.

Are Corn Dogs Keto?

Most corn dogs are not keto, as they are made with a flour and corn coating.

This keto corn dog recipe, however, has just 4.6 grams of carbs in a generous serving of 4 mini corn dog muffins. That’s only 1.15g net carbs each!

How did we make low carb corn dogs? We swapped out the flour with Wholesome Yum almond flour!

And the corn? A little trick with sweet corn extract. You won’t believe how much corn flavor this imparts!
