Mini Keto Corn Dogs
After making our keto kielbasa cornbread and seeing how much our family enjoyed it, I knew a fair-worthy keto-friendly corndog was in our near future.
Everyone kept raving about how it tasted like the kind of corn dogs we used to enjoy as a family at the fair. Except these are baked and there is no need to deep fry in hot oil, making them a MUCH healthier option! You are welcome.
It’s a guilty pleasure recipe you can feel proud of serving your loved ones.
Since these are basically mini low carb corn dog muffins they are also soooo much easier to make and come together very quickly.
There is no need for corn dog sticks, plus each keto-friendly corn dog clocks in at only 1.1 net carbs, giving you the ability to know how many you can consume based on your individual keto macros.
It’s a great recipe for anyone doing a low carb diet and missing a favorite finger food.

Start by using good quality hot dogs, personally my favorite are Nathan’s Famous since it has zero fillers and no gluten or corn syrup.
In a medium-sized bowl combine all the dry ingredients. In another large bowl combine the eggs, sour cream, heavy cream, and cornbread extract.
Then it’s just a matter of mixing the wet and dry ingredients together and adding the melted butter to the batter.
Once the cornbread batter is made add a hot dog piece upright in the center of each muffin cavity and about a tablespoon of batter making sure to cover the top of the hot dogs.
You’ll bake your minis for about 20 to 35 minutes until golden brown and serve them with a side of mustard or sugar-free, low carb ketchup.
The following are the ingredients and materials needed for this recipe. Note that the full printable recipe card is at the bottom of the page.
Best Keto Cornbread Extract
Using a keto-friendly cornbread extract amplifies the flavor of “corn” in this mock corn dog recipe. It’s a way to further fool your tastebuds.
And it’s why I highly encourage you to give it a try.
The use of a corn extract is really effective in getting the flavor of cornbread without the use of any corn and that’s crucial anytime you want all the flavor but none of the carbs.
OOOflavors cornbread flavored concentrate has managed to create a cornbread extract that has zero calories, zero sugar, and zero carbs.
Since it’s a highly concentrated extract a tiny amount is all you need to get the flavor of corn.
I recommend using 6 drops of cornbread extract in this recipe and see if it elevates the flavor further.
I totally get how sometimes we will miss the foods that we grew up with but it’s my honor to try to come up with keto recipes that can fool your tastebuds and still keep you within your keto macros.
It’s what keeps this girl encouraged to keep sharing and perfecting her recipes.

Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective, it’s the filter we choose to see from. When we decided to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.
To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s lead to embrace the ketogenic diet and to combine it with our faith, we got on the path to real transformation.
If you are looking for a Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives we invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
