Original post…

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.

He loves them so much because they are crisp  on the outside, irresistibly light, moist and airy on the inside.

And… they are warm, bready are melt-in-your-mouth yummy!

Total comfort food and so satisfying!

They are just like freshly made bread but with only 6 ingredients and super quick and easy to make.

All you need is gluten-free flour (we use GFJules – affiliate link), fresh or frozen corn, 1 egg, milk, green onions, baking powder, salt and pepper,

Back to the corn fritters….

They are delicious all year round and we normally make them with frozen corn but they are particularly yummy with fresh corn off the cob!

And they are come together quickly! 20 minutes beginning to end.

All you do is mix all the ingredients in one bowl!

I do however, find it best to mix flour and baking powder. Then add the egg and milk. Then add the corn, scallions, salt and pepper. This order of allows for the best flavor.

Then pan fry them in a large saute pan with a little olive oil until golden on both sides!

When we removed them from the pan, I usually like to put them on a paper-towel lined plate just to absorb any extra oil.  But since being home, my son has liked placing them on a baking rack… he thinks they are even crispier that way!

  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.

  2. Hi! My grandmother used to make corn fritters, so I love this! Just wondering, have you ever tried baking these instead of frying?

  3. I just tried these today for the first time and they came out great! They are the perfect snack and only take a few ingredients that you probably already have at home! 10/10 recommend!

  4. Just made these and they turned out amazing! I went light on the oil and they still came out crispy and fluffy they were awesome!

  5. My two boys (and husband) love these. Depending on what’s in the house, I mix it up by adding various combos of feta, garden peas, garlic granules and cheddar. Such a forgiving, versatile recipe. Thanks!

  6. These were absolutely amazing. We did not have green onion, and I can see how that would make them more delicious. I plan on making them again soon. Thank you so much for sharing.

  7. Finally made these and they are incredible! I added half a chopped Serrano pepper and it was the perfect amount of heat. So yummy. Also went with the 1/2 cup of chopped green onion since I love it. Thank you for the recipe!

  8. This recipe looks amazing! I just bought some gfJules Gluten Free Cornbread Mix…have you ever made these with that?

    1. Thank you! It is a favorite! I love the GF Jules cornbread mix but I have never made these with it… These are super savory and while the cornbread has a slightly sweeter taste… plus not sure if the texture would be the same. Let me know if you try.

  9. I’ve been meaning to try this recipe for months.
    I finally did it today!
    Total success 🤗🤗🤗
    As promised, easy and quick to realise.
    Few ingredients needed.
    Tasty and enough even if hungry 😋
    Everyone love it 😍 and ateay asking to do it again 😊😊
    I will probably add next time some specific spices, to be defined 😊

  10. OMG! These were really and truly SO amazing! Quick, easy and such a perfect side with so many things! We had it as a side with pull pork and cole slaw salad and my entire family loved. I didn’t read the directions thoroughly and threw in the frozen corn (instead of letting it thaw), no problem. I also doubled the recipe and everything doubled fine too! Next time I might put a little cayenne pepper in (1/8 tsp) to add some zing!

  11. Had my eye on these for such a long time and when I finally made them they were so delicious!! Such a simple recipe with the easiest ingredients but such a yummy snack or little meal!
    Also, totally for adding the extra green onions. Definitely going to be in the regular rotation from now on 🙂

  12. Hello, these look great! My GF flour doesn’t have xanthan gum in it – how much should I add to the recipe? I googled and it says 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum to 1 cup GF flour so I’m assuming 1/4 teaspoon but just wanted to ask! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Fantastic recipe! Thank you so much. Mine turned out just like your pictures and my picky, celiac husband loved them. It will definitely be repeated at our house!

  14. I just made these for the gluten free kids at Camp Ozark! I added 1/4 teaspoon of parsley flakes and they taste AMAZING!!

  15. I made these today using GF Cassava flour and (dairy free) almond milk- they were delicious. I also served with a dipping sauce of Avocado oil mayo, lime juice, cayenne, salt & pepper. The only change Id make is adding 1/2 teaspoon of salt (vs 1/4) to the fritter mixture and id make a double batch. SO good!

      1. I made these again using frozen corn and I def recommend using fresh instead. Will continue to make, the texture, consistency & flavor is delicious.

  16. Are there any other vegetables that you have tried with this recipe? I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but plan to, looks delish, but was hoping to use another veggie other than corn. Thanks!

  17. Oh good heavens! Finally made these with leftover corn that wasn’t getting eaten. Holy cow are they delicious. Another amazing recipe. Thank you!

  18. My 14 year old daughter and her friend made these. They were so easy to make and came out as beautiful as the pictures. And the were delicious.

  19. I made this recipe last night using vegan alternatives and it came out great – very tasty! I used 3 tablespoons of Just Egg to substitute the 1 egg and a 1:1 measurement of Chobani plain oat milk. I didn’t have green onions but to keep up appearances, I used just a little of some frozen, julienned green beans and the recipe still worked out really well. Thank you!
