Easy Keto Mozzarella Sticks

Is anyone else ever baffled by how many carbs you could eat in one sitting pre-keto? I shudder to think of how I would go to an Italian restaurant, chow down on some breadsticks, eat an appetizer of cheese sticks coated in breadcrumbs and dipped in a sugary marinara sauce, and then finish it all off with a pasta dish.

anyone makes them the “normal” way to begin with. By swapping out the white flour for coconut flour and the breadcrumbs for grated parmesan, you get a result that’s pretty close to identical but much lower in carbs.

Prep Time: 40m  Cook Time: 10m  Total Time: 50m
Yield: 10 cheese sticks


5 one ounce sticks of mozzarella string cheese, halved widthwise
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking powder (optional)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (or 1/2 t. each of dried basil and oregano)
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste


Whisk egg with salt and pepper in a small bowl. In a separate shallow dish, combine the dry ingredients.
Dip each piece of cheese into the egg, and then roll in the parmesan mixture to coat. Repeat this twice to form a double coating on each cheese stick.
Place cheese sticks into a small rectangular dish or other container, and chill in the freezer for at least 25 minutes.
Heat about half an inch of oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
Fry cheese sticks until golden brown, about 60 to 90 seconds per side. Drain excess oil on paper towels.
Serve alone, or with a side of low carb marinara sauce for dipping.
