Corn Dog Mini Muffins

A childhood classic made into the perfect bite-sized muffins! All the flavor of a school lunch corn dog on a stick with simpler ingredients, making for a healthy lunch addition or on-the-go snack.

1 cup almond flour

1 cup yellow cornmeal

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

1/3 cup sugar

2 large eggs, beaten

6 beef franks, cut into 1 inch pieces

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly oil a 24-cup mini muffin tin.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the almond flour, cornmeal, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a large glass measuring cup mix together the buttermilk, butter, eggs, and sugar.
  4. Pour the wet mixture over the dry and using a rubber spatula stir together until just moist.
  5. Scoop 1 tbsp of batter into each mini muffin cup and place one hot dog piece into the center.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown and fluffy.
  7. Serve warm with ketchup or honey mustard dipping sauce! You can also store in an air-tight container and freeze to then heat up in the microwave or toaster-oven later on.
