💡Tips

1. Double-Coat the Mozzarella Sticks for Extra Crispiness

To achieve extra crispy keto mozzarella sticks, you can  double-coat them with the egg wash and the almond flour mixture. After the initial coating, place the mozzarella sticks back into the egg wash and then coat them again with the almond flour mixture.

2. Freeze the Mozzarella Sticks Before Frying

Freezing the coated mozzarella sticks before frying is an important step that should not be skipped. Place the prepared mozzarella sticks on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze them for at least an hour, or until they are firm to the touch.

This freezing process helps the coating adhere better to the cheese and prevents the sticks from falling apart during frying. It also allows the cheese to maintain its shape and not melt too quickly when exposed to the hot oil.

3. Serve with Sugar-Free Marinara Sauce

Mozzarella sticks are often served with a side of marinara sauce for dipping, and you can easily enjoy this classic combination on a keto diet. Look for sugar-free marinara sauce options at your local grocery store, or make your own by simmering crushed tomatoes with garlic, herbs, and spices.
