Even though we live in the age of Pinterest, there are simply times when none of the recipes you have pinned or printed look any good.

Enter : Gluten-Free Corn Dog Muffin Bites.

They quickly broke my recipe boredom with their cuteness! How could they not? Look at them!

Though, I will tell you it took a few attempts before I convinced my daughter NOT to pour honey or syrup on them! Ketchup? Yes! Syrup? No!

We have taken our gluten-free cornbread recipe from our famous Healthified Mexican Cornbread Casserole and placed pieces of hot dogs in it.

Rocket science I tell ya. 😉

One great characteristic of this recipe is that these little bites reheat well after being refrigerated.

Go ahead and double the recipe so you can have them the next night or pop them in your lunch box the next day!

As you know from previous recipes, leftovers are my jam!

When we do not have leftovers, I stare blankly into our fridge because: HOW COULD I POSSIBLY come up with a meal from scratch at noon?!?!

These little cuties are perfect for a family movie night, birthday party, or even an after school snack! They certainly are not the “cleanest eating” recipe on our blog, but relatively healthy nonetheless.

Our cornbread recipe does not contain any refined sugar or oil and we used hot dogs without artificial preservatives or hormones.

See? Pretty healthy for a spin on corn dogs if you ask me!

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup plain unsweetened almond milk
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free flour blend
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 4-5 hot dogs, cut into 1 inch bites
Servings: mini muffins
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a 24 cup mini muffin tin with extra virgin olive oil non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, soak cornmeal in milk for 5 minutes. Then add in remaining cornbread ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  3. Cut your hot dogs into 1 inch bites.
  4. Place about 1 Tbsp cornbread batter into each muffin cup. Place a hot dog bite in the center of each muffin cup.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until bread is golden brown. After you remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes. They should pop out of the pan easily, but if they do not, run a knife around the edges to help loosen them.

  1. Thank you so very much!!! I love the SIMPLICITY of this!! I have been wanting to make GF corndogs but hate the work involved. This makes it not only easy for me to make, but fun for all to eat!!!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this yummy recipe at Talented Tuesdays! I’m always on the lookout for quick, easy and healthy recipes for my family – and I love that these are also gluten free!

    1. Oh no! What type of flour did you use? How long did you bake it?? Darn 🙁 Sarah and I have both made these many times with no issues. Sorry to hear yours weren’t perfect.

    1. Hi Kate! I see no reason why these can’t be frozen. Of course, baked gluten-free foods are always best fresh out of the oven, I have refrigerated these for days and the flavor and texture were always fine. 🙂 Another option would be to cut the recipe in half. Thanks for your question and I hope you enjoy them!
