Sweetcorn + zucchini fritters

These sweetcorn + zucchini fritters can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner!


Fritters are a fun way to increase the veggies in your child’s diet. They’re great for small hands and you can play around with the flavours to suit your little eater. Try adding spring onion, coriander, fetta cheese or peas to the batter.

Eat these Sweetcorn & Zucchini Fritters hot or cold, or pop them into the freezer for lunchboxes or emergency meals. For a meal, I like to serve these with a generous side of guacamole, a light salad and some homemade veggie chips.

Sweetcorn + Zucchini fritters


Prep time: 10 mins

Cook time: 15 mins

Serves: 6


  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 1 corn cob, kernals removed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsely, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp smoke paprika
  • Pinch sea salt & black pepper
  • Coconut oil, for the pan


  1. In a medium bowl, place the zucchini, corn kernels, parsley, turmeric, paprika and salt. Stir to combine.
  2. Separate the egg yolks from the whites. Add the yokes to the zucchini mixture with the Greek yoghurt.
  3. Add the flour and baking powder to the batter.
  4. Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold into the batter being careful not to lose too much air.
  5. Heat a fry pan over medium heat and melt a small amount of coconut oil.
  6. Once heated, add a dessert spoon sized dollop of the fritter batter into the pan.
  7. Cook for a few minutes on each side until golden and cooked through. Place on paper towel and repeat with the remainder of the batter.


If you are going to freeze, allow for the fritters to cool completely before laying out a tray lined with on baking paper. Place in the freezer until frozen and then store in a container.

Frozen corn can be used in place of a fresh corn cob. Allow to defrost before using it in the recipe. Don’t be afraid to play with flavours. Try adding spring onion, coriander, fetta cheese or peas to the batter.
