How to Make Paleo Corn Dog Muffins
2. Slice hot dogs into 1/4 to 1/2-inch-thick pieces and set aside.
3. In a large bowl, combine cassava and coconut flour, coconut sugar, baking soda, and salt.
4. Next, whisk or stir in the ghee, eggs, and coconut milk until a batter forms.
5. Place two heaping tablespoons of the batter into each muffin liner followed by 4 to 5 slices of hot dog into each compartment by pressing them into the batter.
6. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until the tops are golden and the middle is cooked all the way through.
7. Remove the muffins from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for 5 to 8 minutes before handling or serving.
How to Store Paleo Corn Dog Muffins
Muffins can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days for optimal freshness. When ready to eat, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 4 to 6 minutes or until warm to the touch. For a more extended storage place cooled muffins into a freezer-safe resealable bag or container. When ready to eat, follow the same reheating instructions as above right from the freezer! You may need to add a few extra minutes until they are heated.
Essential Equipment for Making Paleo Corn Dog Muffins
Standard Muffin Pan – A standard muffin pan with six compartments is best for making these corn dog muffins. You could also use a mini muffin pan and place one large chunk of hot dog in the middle (you’ll want to adjust the baking time by half or more) for parties or finger food.
Muffin Liners – For this recipe, I love using muffin liners. I found they make these corn dogs easy to transport and store.

Basic Staples For Making Paleo Corn Dog Muffins
Uncured Hot Dogs – Applegate hot dogs are one of the only hot dogs out there that are minimally processed with zero chemicals, additives, and they are nitrate and nitrite-free. I am not an affiliate; I just really love and trust this company.
Cassava Flour – Cassava flour is very similar to white flour when it comes to taste and texture.
Coconut Flour – In addition to the cassava flour, coconut flour is one of my preferred alternative flours to bake with when it comes to allergy-friendly recipes.
Coconut Sugar – Coconut sugar is a natural sweetener with a lower glycemic index. It can also be swapped out for equal parts of honey or maple syrup (this may change the taste and texture).
Grass-Fed Butter (or Ghee) – If you can not tolerate dairy, butter can be swapped out with equal parts of melted ghee or coconut oil.
Eggs – Local pasture-raised eggs are always best!
Coconut Milk – Coconut milk can be swapped out for equal parts of almond milk.
