Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 18 minutes
Servings 3


  • 12 pieces Mozzarella string cheese each cut in half
  • 2 tbsp Coconut flour *
  • 1 large Egg beaten
  • 1 cup Almond flour
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder optional



  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Place coconut flour in a small bowl. Beat the egg in a second small bowl. Mix the almond flour and Italian seasoning in a third bowl.
  3. Dredge each piece of mozzarella in coconut flour. Dip it in the egg, shaking off the excess. Roll in the almond flour mixture until well coated, then place on the lined cookie sheet. Repeat with all the mozzarella (don't let the pieces touch on the cookie sheet).
  4. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for at least one hour, or until ready to bake. (Don't skip this step! It's necessary to prevent the cheese from oozing out during baking.)
  5. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Take the cookie sheet out of the freezer and place in the oven (preferably onto the second rack from the lowest). Bake for 4-5 minutes, until the bottom side is golden. Flip and bake for 3-4 more minutes, until golden on the other side.
