Sweetcorn Fritters – You are what you eat in the New Year

Low GI Corn Bread

There is something about a the New Year that makes you feel refreshed and hopeful for the future, even if you haven’t been on holiday during December. Some people have New Years resolution, while other swear to never make them again, however said the New Year brings new expectations, new dreams and new hopes.

Off course my New Years resolution remains the same as every other year, to be fitter than the previous year, to eat more healthier and to have balance in my life.

A food tradition from South America is to eat Corn Bread to attract new-found wealth in the new year. This tradition stems from the golden color of corn bread resembling real gold!  So make sure you have enough corn, also try this healthy microwave corn bread from a previous post


1 x 410g tin Sweetcorn

80ml Flour

10 ml Baking powder

80 ml oatbran

1 Egg (beaten)

5ml Canola oil for frying / non -stick spray

Place Sweetcorn in a mixing bowl.

Sift the baking powder and flour over the sweetcorn, add the oatbran and egg and mix.

Heat the oil in the pan or spray with a non-stick spray.

Add spoonfulls of the batter in the pan and fry on both sides. 

Enjoy hot or cold.



Note that you only use a little oil which makes this fritters really low in fat.

This fritters is moist enough to enjoy without butter, enjoy with a stingy spreading of jam or havet it as an alternative starch portion for lunch or supper.


One fritter equals 1/2 a starch portion

  1. These look delicious! I love corn fritters, we used to eat them when I was growing up in the Southern U.S. I still love them now, and sometimes top them with smoked salmon lox and a little creme fraiche. Which isn’t quite as healthy as just enjoying the fritter. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe, definitely going make these!
