Flax Egg

  • 1 Tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 2 12 Tablespoons water

Dry ingredients

  • ½ cup flour of choice I used gluten-free almond flour
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

Other ingredients (Wet/Cooked)

  • 3 cups cooked corn unless using from a can (I grilled my corn)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 red onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • ½ cup unsweetened unflavored plant-milk (I used almond milk)



  • In a small bowl combine ingredients, stir and allow to sit to thicken for several minutes.


  • In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients and set aside.


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Cook corn if frozen or grilling fresh corn on the cob (see instructions in the post). If using canned corn drain well.
  • If grilling corn on the cob, allow to cool and cut away the corn from the husks

Prepare the Vegetables

  • Saute garlic, red onion, and red bell pepper until the onion is translucent.
  • Remove from heat.

Corn Fritter Mixture

  • Remove 1 cup of corn and slightly blend with the plant milk.
  • Add the plant milk/corn mixture and flax egg to the dry ingredients and stir
  • Add remaining cooked corn, and red onion/red bell pepper sauteed vegetables
  • Stir to combine.


  • Place formed corn fritters on a baking sheet lined with a silcione baking mat
    or parchment paper.
  • Baked for 30 minutes.

Air Frying

  • Preheat teh air fryer to 400 degrees.
  • Place the corn fritters into the base of air fryer or on the air fryer pan.
  • Cook for 15 minutes until crispy.
  • Serve with your favorite sauce and side of vegetables.
  • Corn fritters can also be served on a bun and a corn fritter burger.


  • Even though the corn fritters are fabulous without any type of sauce, I love sauces! So, I suggest you use your favorite hot sauce, vegan sour cream, or yum yum sauce.
  • And, I also served my corn fritter on top of quinoa with a side of grilled asparagus. 
  • If you don't have a burger press, you can use your hands to press the corn fritters. 
  • To reheat cooked fritters, reheat in a 325-degree oven for 15 minutes, or air fry again at 325 for 10 minutes.
  • Corn fritters can be frozen cooked or uncooked for up to 3 months.
