Corn dogs––a family favorite that can be found at just about any family gathering, festive party, and even in your freezer at home. Although they’re not positively known for their nutritional value, that doesn’t mean you can’t feel good about enjoying a convenient little snack on a stick without the unnecessary ingredients. It just takes a little imagination!
iFit has taken the original corn dog recipe and manipulated the ingredients to make it more health-conscious, yet taste just as delicious. They replaced the refined flour you would usually use with whole wheat flour instead, replaced with Greek yogurt and a little butter, then baked in the oven rather than frying them in oil. This recipe also calls for high-quality, all-beef hot dogs, so you can keep up with the improved, healthy version of the recipe and miss out on the questionable ingredients.
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1/2 cup fat-free, plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup honey
- 8 all-beef hot dogs (look for ones without nitrates)
- 16 wooden sticks
- Cooking spray
