Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Whisk egg with salt and pepper in a small bowl. In a separate shallow dish, combine the dry ingredients.

  4. Heat about half an inch of oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  5. Fry cheese sticks until golden brown, about 60 to 90 seconds per side. Drain excess oil on paper towels.
  6. Serve alone, or with a side of low carb marinara sauce for dipping.
