A healthy, gluten-free, spicy, crunchy and addictive snack made with sweet corn. Super easy to make and so delicious! 


  • 1 can (15.25 oz / 450 g) sweet corn kernels (or 2 and ½ cups fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Pour corn kernels onto the baking sheet. Season with salt and paprika. Spread evenly to a single layer.
  4. Roast for 15 minutes, remove from the oven, stir and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until golden and crunchy.
  5. Turn the heat off and let the roasted corn sit in the oven, leaving the oven door half open.


  • Make sure the corn kernels are in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  • After 20 minutes of roasting, check if they are crunchy enough. Continue baking if they are not.
  • It tastes the best on the same day. And if you make it ahead of time, reheat in the oven for 5 minutes or in a skillet on the stove.
