You’re going to love these mini corn dog muffins
Were corn dogs a thing in your house? My parents never really bought them which honestly made them so much more exciting when I’d be able to get them at the fair.
(Honestly, I just loved how they were on a stick).
Of course, these corn dogs aren’t on a stick but they are mini. And if there’s anything better than food on a stick, it’s food in miniature form.
These are soft, moist, and oh so tasty. They’re filled with nostalgia of bad fair food and carnivals. But because we are adults and stuff…these are healthier than a normal hot dog.
Sweetened with just a touch of maple syrup, they won’t cause a major sugar crash which is important if you eat them for a meal. See…healthier.
These are also super easy to make. All you need is one bowl and a whisk…no hand mixer required!

Almost any food conundrum can be solved with these mini corn dog muffins. (Except if you’re craving dessert…then you’ll need to find another recipe).
But fair warning: these disappear fast. And no, I’m not saying that your kids are going to destroy them. I don’t have kids, I don’t know if that happens.
What I AM saying is that, you’re going to destroy them. They’re going to disappear into your stomach as you enjoy a healthy Netflix binge and maybe even a bubble bath.
Savory muffins and cupcakes are underrated if you ask me. I mean, almost anything meal that you’d bake in the oven can be made in a muffin tin (if you have these silicone cupcake liners…if you don’t have them, most foods are a pain to make in a muffin tin).
