  • 12 mozzarella cheese sticks
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking oil for frying


1. Prepare the Mozzarella Sticks:

  • Unwrap the mozzarella sticks and cut them in half to create 24 shorter sticks.
  • To firm them up, place them in the freezer for about 30 minutes. This will help prevent the cheese from melting too quickly when frying.

2. Create the Coating Mixture:

  • In a shallow bowl, mix almond flour with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. This will be your coating mixture.

3. Whisk Eggs:

  • In a separate shallow dish, whisk the eggs until completely combined.

4. Coat the Cheese Sticks:

  • The mozzarella sticks should be removed from the freezer.
  • Take one stick at a time and dip it into the whisked eggs, making sure it’s fully coated.
  • Then, roll it in the almond flour mixture, pressing gently to adhere the coating. Repeat this process to double-coat each stick for a crispy finish.
  • Place the coated sticks on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze them for an additional 15-20 minutes. This step helps the coating set and prevents cheese leakage during frying.

5. Heat the Cooking Oil:

  • In a deep skillet or frying pan, heat enough cooking oil to submerge the mozzarella sticks. Heat the oil to 350°F (180°C).

6. Fry the Mozzarella Sticks:

  • Carefully place the frozen coated mozzarella sticks into the hot oil, a few at a time, ensuring they are not overcrowded. Fry for about 2-3 minutes, or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove the fried sticks and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  • Repeat the frying process for the remaining sticks.

7. Serve:

  • Serve your keto mozzarella sticks hot with a low-carb marinara sauce or a dipping sauce of your choice.

  • Be sure to freeze the mozzarella sticks before frying to ensure they hold their shape and don’t melt too quickly in the hot oil.
  • Use a thermometer to monitor the oil temperature, as maintaining the right temperature is crucial for achieving a crispy exterior while keeping the cheese inside gooey.
  • Experiment with different seasoning blends for the almond flour coating to customize the flavor to your liking.
  • If you don’t want to deep fry, you can also bake these mozzarella sticks in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
