Ingredients

  • 12 Mozzarella sticks string cheese, cut in half
  • 2 large Eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup Almond flour
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese the powdered kind
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt

Instructions

  • In a bowl combine almond flour, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic salt.
  • In a separate bowl whisk eggs.
  • One at a time coat your mozzarella stick halves in egg and then toss in the coating mixture. As you finish place them in a resealable container. If you have to make more than 1 layer place parchment paper between the layers of mozzarella sticks.
  • Freeze mozzarella sticks for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from freezer and place in Philips AirFryer.
  • Set to 400 degrees F and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Open air fryer and let stand for 1 minute before moving low carb mozzarella sticks to a plate.

Notes

Note: The Philips AirFryer retains some of its heat for awhile so if you are making multiple batches you'll want to lower the time a little as you go on. We started at 5 minutes for our first batch and then went down to 4 minutes after that.
