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

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!
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!
These would be bomb in an air fryer! Going to try some mini ones 🙂
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 ????????????.
Amazing! Thanks for the share. I used skewers and they turned out perfectly!
Delicious! Great recipe!
Thanks so much Tigani! Glad you liked them!
Do you think these would freezer alright ?
Did you use shredded mozzarella or fresh mozzarella cheese ball?
Shredded mozzarella. Fresh doesn’t work well for the dough
An I use coconut flour instead ? I am not a fan of almond flour..
I have not tried it with coconut flour. I am not sure how the dough will hold up but you can give it a try!
Wow these were amazing! My family loved them so much!
Is it possible to substitute lactose free cheese into this recipe? Would it alter the consistency of the dough?
Jania, I’m not sure. I never tried it but as long as the cheese melts it should work.
Would these freeze?
I haven’t tried (they don’t last long in my house) but I don’t see why not.
Can you use any shredded cheese?
It has to be mozzarella for the fat head dough.
I’m looking forward to making these but why are you using skim milk and cheese? Keto is full fat
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.
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
Hi Carol, I have not tried freezing them but I don’t see why they couldn’t be frozen.
