Gluten-Free Corn Fritters

Crisp on the outside and Irresistibly light and moist on the inside!

If you follow my Instagram stories, you know my son LOVES these savory corn fritters.

We’ve been making them for yearrrrs and lately he eats them often as an after school “snack” (can you say teen boy appetite?).

If he’s home, he’ll make them but often I’ll make them and he’ll eat in the car on the way to an after school commitment.

Recipe type: Sides, Snacks
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegetarian
Serves: 5-6 fritters
  • ½ cup All Purpose Gluten- Free Flour with xanthum gum (we use GF Jules -- affiliate link)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅓ cup fat free milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1½ cup fresh or frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped green onions (or more to taste, lately we’ve been adding more and loving it!)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • Olive oil for frying
  1. Note: Not sure exactly sure why but the order of operations matters here
  2. Combine flour and baking powder in a large bowl.
  3. Add egg and milk. Miix well until smooth.
  4. Stir in salt, pepper, corn and green onions
  5. Heat olive oil in a large non stick skillet.. Drop batter in spoonfuls onto hot oil to make 5-6 fritters.
  6. Cook approximately 3 minutes, flip and slightly flatten fritters with the back of the spatula. Cook another 5 minutes until golden on both sides. (you may need to re-flip and cook a minute or two to make the first side more golden)

  1. We tried these corn fritters a couple of weeks ago and they are our new favorite go-to side dish! They complement any kind of protein and veg and are a win for our celiac daughter! Thank you! YUM

    1. Great questions! I don’t think almond flour would work because it would significantly change the texture of the fritters because it is so much denser. I like the idea of adding some zucchini but would be careful about adding too much as it will get too moist and change the texture as well.
