Low-FODMAP Corn Dogs; Gluten-free, Dairy-free
May 28, 2022Printer Friendly Version
I couldn’t resist.
When my youngest son told me that corn dogs are his favorite lunch in the school cafeteria, I knew I had to create a low-FODMAP, gluten-free version for my blog.
You heard that?!
Not a healthy food,
Certainly not a ‘diet’ food.
But a delicious, summertime, kid-friendly food, that we all know and love.
Why not enjoy these on the low-FODMAP diet? YOU CAN.
This is a recipe for the kid in all of us. Yum.
Note: If high fat food is a trigger for your IBS, then avoid this recipe

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Total time: 35 min
Equipment: Large pot or Dutch Oven for frying, lollipop sticks or bamboo skewers, tall glass or bottle for batter
- 8 low-FODMAP, gluten-free hot dogs (1 standard package)
- Jumbo hot dogs are easier to skewer and pick up when done, I recommend those over standard sized dogs
- 1 & 1/4 cups gluten-free cornmeal (select a fine grind)
- 1 & 1/4 cups Authentic Foods GF Classical Blend (this does not contain added xanthan gum or leaveners)
- If you don’t have this, then substitute 1 cup superfine rice flour, 2 tablespoons potato starch and 2 tablespoons tapioca starch or flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 1 cup low-FODMAP milk mixed with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to create a ‘buttermilk’, room temperature
- Options for low-FODMAP milk include unsweetened almond milk (dairy-free) or lactose-free milk
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- Frying oil, 2-3 cups depending on your pot
- Select your preferred high smoke point oil, for deep frying (I use canola oil or peanut oil)
- 8 lollipop sticks or bamboo skewers
Note: You will have extra batter, since dipping the dogs requires the glass to be full. I suggest making bite-sized corn dogs (cut wieners in half and spear with toothpicks), or frying low-FODMAP pickles with remaining batter -yum!
- Pour oil in your pot or Dutch oven to 2-3 inches deep
- Set up a wire rack or paper towel lined plate
- Warm oil to 350˚F over medium to medium high heat
- I recommend using a cooking thermometer if you don’t have a deep fryer
- While oil is warming, pat hot dogs completely dry with paper towels, then insert a lollipop stick or bamboo skewer into each hot dog. Make sure the sticks are deep enough that the dogs lay flat in your Dutch oven
- Whisk together dry ingredients ( low-FODMAP, GF flour(s), cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt)
- In a second larger bowl, whisk together wet ingredients (low-FODMAP buttermilk, egg, oil and maple syrup)
- Pour dry ingredients into the wet ones and whisk to combine
- Pour batter into a tall narrow glass or bottle (with a mouth wide enough to fit your hot dog easily) almost to the top
- Slowly dip hot dogs one by one, then place immediately into the oil
- You want to put the hot dog straight down into batter and give it a little twirl to fully coat, then spin gently as you lift up. Let excess drip off
- If there are air bubbles, then dip again and repeat process of twirling (I found this video very helpful)
- Hold corn dog at an angle in the hot oil for 5-7 seconds to let it seal, then drop into oil
- If you don’t ease them in the oil slowly then they will stick to the bottom of the pot
- Fry until golden, about 3 minutes, turning as needed. You can do 2-3 at a time or one by one, just be aware that the more you crowd the pot, the lower the oil temperature will become
- If the oil is too cold, the dogs will taste oily. If too hot, they can burn
- Transfer to a paper towel lined plate or wire rack to cool until all are finished
- Serve immediately
- For leftovers, heat in a preheated 300F oven until warmed through
