Yields4 Servings
Prep Time15 minsCook Time8 minsTotal Time23 mins
 6 mozzarella string cheese sticks (MUST be low moisture, part skim)
 2 large eggs, beaten
 ½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  cup blanched almond flour
 1 tsp Italian seasoning
 ½ tsp garlic powder
 ¼ tsp sea salt
1

Unwrap the cheese sticks and cut in half to create two shorter sticks from each. Set aside.

2

Beat your egg/eggs in a small to medium bowl. You can start with one egg and add another later if needed.

3

In a medium dish (large enough to make it easy to coat your cheese sticks) blend together the parmesan cheese, almond flour, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and sea salt.

4

Create a dipping station starting with your (previously cut) cheese sticks, followed by the egg wash, then the "breading" mix, and finally a small pan or dish covered with a sheet of parchment paper.

5

One by one, dip each cheese stick in the egg wash followed by rolling the cheese stick in the "breading" mix. Be sure that each cheese stick gets two egg washes and two rolls in the almond flour/parmesan breading.

6

Once all the cheese sticks have been dipped and rolled, check each one to make sure that no cheese is showing through. Re-roll any that need extra "breading". If the cheese stick isn't fully coated, there is a greater risk that cheese will ooze out during cooking.

7

Place the pan/dish with cheese sticks in the freezer on a level surface for no less than 1 hour. This helps to keep the cheese from melting too quickly in the high heat of the air fryer giving the outer coating time to get crispy.

8

Once frozen through, remove the cheese sticks from the freezer. With cooking spray, grease your air fryer basket and/or tin foil liner as well as each cheese stick.

9

Place cheese sticks in an air fryer. Cook at 375 degrees for 7- 10 minutes.

10

Serve immediately to ensure that your fried mozzarella sticks remain crispy, melty, and gooey. Enjoy!
