Ingredients

  • 12 ounces mozzarella string cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups finely ground almond flour
  • 1 ½ cups finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut the mozzarella in half.
  • Beat the eggs together with 1 tablespoon of water in a shallow bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together the almond flour, Parmesan, and garlic powder. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Dip the mozzarella in the eggs.
  • Coat in the almond flour mixture, using your hands to gently press the mixture into the cheese.
  • Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Freeze for at least one hour.

To Bake:

  • Preheat the oven to 425° F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the cheese sticks on the parchment paper and spray with oil.
  • Bake for 4 minutes. Turn over, and bake an additional 2 minutes or until golden brown. (For a deeper golden brown, you can broil for the last 2 minutes - be sure to watch closely to avoid over-browning.

To Fry:

  • Preheat at 3-inches of avocado oil in a medium pot to 355° F. (You can also use a deep fryer.)
  • Fry in batches until the cheese is golden brown, about 90 seconds to 2 minutes.
