Gluten-free Corn Dog

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am coming at you with a recipe for one of my favorite childhood foods, tofu corn dogs!!! They used to sell a box of these bad boys at Trader Joes, not gluten-free of course, but they were delicious! Recently I have gotten back into eating tofu dogs and I decided to try to make corn dogs! I used a coarse corn meal for this recipe because I like more gritty corn bread usually, but if you like a more fluffy taste use a finely ground corn meal 🙂

Let’s Get Started


  • 4-6 tofu dogs
  • 1/2 cup of yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup of Garbanzo Bean Flour
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons of non-dairy milk (I use almond milk)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Package of skewers
  • Frying oil of your choice, I use a mix of canola and olive oil


  1. In a mixing bowl, mix together corn meal, garbanzo bean flour, non-dairy milk, olive oil, baking powder, and the seasoning. Once all the ingredients are combined (the batter should look like thick, gritty pancake batter) pour the mixture into a tall skinny glass, for easy dipping.
  2. Fill a small pot or pan with your oil of choice and allow the oil to start heating over medium heat.
  3. Remove your tofu dogs from their package and carefully poke each tofu dog with a skewer, put them off to the side once they are ready.
  4. Place one tofu dog at a time into the glass of batter and make sure they are completely covered before placing them in the fryer. If you don’t have a thermometer to test how hot the oil is, I like to just place a tiny dollop of the batter and if quickly bubbles up then the oil is ready!
  5. Place one tofu dog at a time into the fryer and wait until they are golden brown, this took about a minute for me but just watch them carefully.
  6. When your corn dogs are done place them on a plate with a paper towel for the excess oil to drain.
  7. Now you are ready to serve with your favorite sauce!
