Baked Hushpuppies – not fried – healthy alternative

Baked Hushpuppies – not fried – healthy alternative

Hushpuppies batter in mold.

Baked hushpuppies are a much healthier alternative to the famous, deep fried southern dish.

Hushpuppies are delicious bite sized cornmeal snacks that are typically deep fried. I skipped the deep frying. To make them perfectly bite size, I used a cakepop silicone mold.  Then I baked my hushpuppies.  This recipe left me with some batter, which I poured into a greased cupcake pan.

Baked hushpuppies in cakepop mold - ready to be eaten.The hushpuppies in the cake pop mold had the perfect bite size, whereas the cupcake versions were more moist and flavorful.

Special tip:

I added ground flaxseed to the recipe to add a bit more “feel good feeling” to this snack.  Each one of these balls has about 70 calories and is definitely filling.  I packed these up for a roadtrip with my mom and aunt and it was the perfect snack on the go.

Try on your own and let me know if you enjoy.
