Baked Mini Corn Dog Snacks

4 Jun

I have to admit something….

…I *love* corn dogs.  Hot dogs, you couldn’t pay me to eat one.  But CORN dogs… drive me wild ; )  However the fact that they are deep fried and usually huge doesn’t do well with trying to eat more healthy.  So that’s why I love this recipe for bite sized, baked mini versions of my favorite fair food!

Adapted from Iowa Girl Eats

1/2 cup applesauce, the sweetened kind
1/2 cup sugar 
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

turkey hot dogs, or tofu hot dogs

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spray the cups of a mini muffin pan with non stick spray.

Combine the applesauce and sugar in a bowl.

Whisk in the eggs and buttermilk.

In a separate bowl add the baking soda, salt, cornmeal and flour.  Mix together.

Whisk in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.

Pour some into the muffin cups to about 3/4 full, then add in a 1″ piece of hot dog and push down in the cup.

Bake for about 10 minutes.

*This recipe makes about 46 mini corn dogs*
