Keto Corn Dogs

Remember those yummy Corn Dogs at the Fair? Well, these Keto Corn Dogs are even better!

Keto Corn Dogs

It’s the third week of January and I am already thinking of Summer.

Also, the Super Bowl is in a few weeks and I am putting together my favorite Keto Super Bowl recipes, these Keto Corn Dogs included.

I’ve been pretty health-conscious for most of my life but I will say that one of my weaknesses is Corn Dogs.

If I am ever at a fair or see a corn dog stand, I can’t help myself. Yes, I know, they are fried in terrible oil and filled with crap ingredients, but they are so good nevertheless.

I’ve been really missing corn dogs lately and when I thought of what I could use to replace the “batter”, Fathead dough came to mind.

What is fathead dough you ask? If you follow a Keto diet you have probably seen it because it’s used for everything! It’s pretty much cheese, cream cheese, eggs, and almond flour.

My recipe for Keto Pizza and Keto Bagel and Lox uses fathead dough. It’s really easy to make and you can pretty much use it for everything.

So, I figured, why not wrap hot dogs in fathead dough and bake them? Well, it’s easier said than done. There are a few things you should keep in mind when making this recipe.

  • Make sure you use part-skim mozzarella cheese. If you use whole milk mozzarella the dough will be runny and it won’t stick to the hot dogs.
  • Add more almond flour to the dough if you need to so you can spread it out thinner and cut strips off and wrap the hot dogs that way.
  • Be patient. It takes some time to evenly distribute the dough on the hot dogs and to make it, even so, you don’t have uneven parts.
  • Place the hot dogs on a stick before you put the dough on the dogs.

Keto Corn Dogs

Yield: 8 hot dogs
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Using coffee stir sticks, pierce the hot dogs through, leaving a couple of inches at the end.
  3. Place hot dogs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Combine the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwavable bowl and melt for 30-60 seconds. Mix together until well combined.
  5. Add in the almond flour and egg. Mix until a dough forms.
  6. Lay down a large piece of parchment paper. Transfer the dough to the middle of the parchment paper and top it with another piece.
  7. Press the dough down. Use a dough roller to roll the dough out to 1/4-1/2 inch thickness depending on how thick you want your dogs to be. 
  8. Remove the top sheet of parchment paper and using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 8 even pieces. 
  9. Working with one hot dog at a time, take one piece of dough and wrap it around the hot dog. Work the dough into the dough to distribute the dough evenly. Place back on the baking sheet
  10. Repeat with all of the hot dogs.
  11. Bake for 20-30 minutes until the dough is golden brown.
  12. Serve with sugar-free ketchup and mustard.


If the dough is too sticky, add more almond flour and chill it for 5-10 minutes.

You may have dough leftover. Use it to make pigs in a blanket.

  1. These corn dogs were so good! I didn’ expect them to taste like the real thing but they do!! Thanks for sharing this recipe! My kids love corn dogs so I will be making these often!

  2. I’ve been looking for a Keto version of a corn dog recipe and this one is the best I have found! It’s super easy to make and tastes better than commercial corn dogs. The only thing I did differently was to add more almond flour because my dough was a bit too sticky to roll onto the hot dog. Thank you for this recipe!

  3. Omg yes!!!! I wish I had one of those. I should really ask for someone to get me one for my birthday in a few weeks ????????????.

  4. Is it possible to substitute lactose free cheese into this recipe? Would it alter the consistency of the dough?

  5. Because it makes the dough easier to wrap around the hot dog. If you use full fat the dough will be too greasy and it will fall apart.

  6. I’m the only one who will eat these in our house (and I CANNOT WAIT) so would be making them 1 or 2 at a time. Do you think the leftover dough can be frozen? Have you tried doing that? Thanks so much! Carol

  7. Hi Kathy! You can definitely deep fry the keto corn dogs for a more traditional approach. However, if you’re looking for a healthier option, the baked version is a great choice. It retains the delicious flavor while being lower in added fats. Give it a try and enjoy a tasty treat with a healthier twist!
