Keto Mozzarella Sticks – recipe


These taste just as good as the carb-loaded mozzarella sticks!  Honestly, I could eat these in replacement of regular mozzarella sticks even if I wasn’t on keto.  I didn’t even need a fryer of any sort to make these, I made them on the stovetop with a little bit of oil in a pan.  Super easy!

I used KetoLuxe Italian Seasoning which has zero carbs in it, but you can use whichever seasoning you desire or make your own!

If you are creating these for a specific time, be sure to plan for a few hours in advance due to some freezing time that is needed before frying.  In order to fryer the mozzarella sticks (without melting the cheese completely), you’ll want to freeze them at least an hour prior to frying.  I made them a day in advance, froze overnight, and fried them up for dinner the next day.

I make these on pizza nights and as appetizers.  They are great for Superbowl as well (see more Superbowl recipes here)!   I haven’t tried making these in an air fryer, but if you do please comment below and let me know how it goes!  Pair with your favorite low-carb marinara sauce!

Only 1g total carb per stick, you can afford to indulge on several of these tasty little guys!

Keto Mozzarella Sticks – recipe


  • 1 12-count bag of mozzarella cheese sticks
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 TBS Italian seasoning (I used KetoLuxe Italian Seasoning)


  1. Mix eggs and garlic powder in a mixing bowl.
  2. Mix coconut flower, baking powder, Parmesan, and Italian seasoning in a separate bowl.
  3. Cut each mozzarella stick in half. Dip each half in the egg bowl and then in the dry ingredients bowl. Do this twice per mozzarella stick (it gets a better coating this way).
  4. Line dipped mozzarella sticks on a parchment lined pan or container, place in the freezer for at least 1 hour.
  5. When ready to fry, heat about 1/8 of an inch of oil in a pan large enough for frying, on medium-high heat.
  6. Once oil is thoroughly heat, fry several frozen mozzarella sticks at a time. Turn until fully fried on each side.
  7. Serve with a low-carb marinara!
