“Corn Dog” Nuggets

Shares

It’s back to school time and you want to find some fun but healthy snacks for your kids. Well these little “corn dog” bites are sure to be a hit, even though they contain no corn whatsoever. I saw a conventional version of this recipe recently and wanted to give it a low carb makeover. Lightly sweetened coconut flour has a very similar flavour to cornbread and my kids just adored these!

“Corn Dog” Nuggets

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • Sweetener of choice equivalent to 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 large eggs
  • 5 tbsp butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup almond milk (or use half water, half cream for a nut-free version)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 5 hot dogs, each cut into 6 even pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F and grease a non-stick mini muffin pan very well. If you do not have a good non-stick pan, you may want to consider paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, combine coconut flour, sweetener, baking powder, and salt, breaking up any clumps with the back of a fork. Stir in eggs, butter, milk, and vanilla extract until well combined. Stir in 3/4 cup of the shredded cheese.
  3. Fill each mini muffin cavity about two thirds full of batter (you may end up with a little too much batter and will need to do another round). Press one piece of hot dog into the center of each. Sprinkle the tops with remaining cheese.
  4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and muffins are firm to the touch. Remove and let cool 15 minutes, then gently run a knife around the edges of each and remove them from the pan.

These look great. I was wondering if they can be frozen?

Great idea for the kids (and me), these look great! I don’t have a mini-muffin pan yet. I think I’ll dice up the hot dogs, add them to the batter & make “drop bisquits” on parchment paper. Thanks!
