Healthy Baked Corn Vegetable Fritters

Needing a recipe to get in extra vegetables into the whole family? These are a great way to sneak in some extra vege into snack time. Not only do they make great finger food for toddlers but you can incorporate these asΒ  a side to a main dish or pair up with a salad for us parents. I’m not one to fry my food however as a special treat I tried both frying and baking these balls of yumminess on 2 separate occasions and both ways are just fabulous. For the healthier option I do recommend baking these. I first made these for a play date my kids were having and all four kids loved them! My partner is my biggest critic and when he says he likes a dish then I know its a winner.

Living in Bali there are little food stalls and warung’s that make corn fritters. They are usually made with more flour and with a spec or 2 of corn that are deep fried. I wanted to make a version that had more vegetables, less flour and definitely not deep fried. These healthy corn fritters are egg free, dairy free and gluten free. I was a bit scepticle at first how these would hold together but the recipe worked beautifully. Β  These can be made into little balls or flattened. Totally up to you on how you prefer to serve them.

I have added quite a few vegetables to this savoury recipe however they are sneakily disguised and the taste of the sweet corn is rather prominent hiding away any other tastes and flavours. We enjoyed dipping ours into some home made guacamole for some added healthy fats but you can enjoy yours the same or perhaps with some tomato ketchup or sour cream.

This weekend head over to your local farmers market if possible and source as many organic ingredients as possible. I hope you enjoy these as much as our entire family did and also our friends.

Increase the vegetable intake at snack time with these balls of yum!

Mini Muncher Is The Only Food I Use For My Babies When In Bali

  Mini muncher is the only food I use for my babies when in Bali, her food is so beautiful, fresh and most of all healthy which makes such a difference when there are not too many options for baby food. The service is impeccable and delivery prompt and always on time. There are so many options to choose from and I haven't found anything my kids don't love yet! Thank you so much Silv and team for such a wonderful product and for making life so much easier when I'm in Bali with my four kids.

Delicious Food Got Our Kids Again

  Our kids had caught an awful virus and didn't want to eat anything we offered them in days. Everything changed once Mini Muncher's food arrived! Our kids absolutely loved the meals and we were so glad seeing them eat again! We put in a second order last minute which was delivered within a few hours! Amazing service, amazing food. I wish we could take you home with us! Once again, thank you Silv!

Baby Food Options When We Were In Bali

  I was kind of panic as I couldn't find many baby food options my baby could eat when we were in Bali couple weeks ago. Called Mini Muncher, ordered it and the food arrived the next day. Very friendly owner and the delivery girl. The most important thing was my baby loved it. Thanks a lot! You saved our holiday.

Fantastic Range Of Meals Just Like Home

  I was slightly stressed taking our 13 month old to Bali in regards to what she eat as she still loves home cooked vegetables. After googling, I came across Mini Muncher. Fantastic range of meals just like home and delivered to our hotel a few hours after ordering. Will definitely order again when we are back next year!
