Today I’m sharing with you my favorite keto bread recipe that is so simple to make! You don’t have to be a professional chef to make it!
A keto diet is a very low carbohydrate, moderate protein, and high fat diet. It is primarily used to treat epilepsy, and can help people with a high carb diet eat the foods they enjoy while still losing weight. Fats, Alcohol, and Sweeteners are the most common things to be restricted in the diet. In this article we will be talking about the best keto air fryer mozzarella sticks recipe, which are perfect for those trying to lose weight.
The only thing better than cheese is grilled cheese.
There’s nothing better than a crispy, tasty sandwich filled with melty, gooey cheese. It is without a doubt the family’s favorite snack. Serve a hot dish with these fried mozzarella sticks and score points! Add delicious dips like sugar-free marinara and ranch and you’ll be everyone’s best friend from the first bite.
Through trial and error, I discovered the best tips and tricks…..
I tested different methods, different brands of cheese spread, and paneer flavors to come up with a recipe for hot air fryer mozzarella sticks for keto. I’ve tried to take the annoying guesswork out of it, so you can avoid the frustration and sticky mess I experienced on my first attempts.
If you follow my instructions and tips, you’ll be well on your way to making the BEST of all keto friendly fried mozzarella sticks!
Tips for preparing hippie recipes:
- FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS IN THE RECIPE. I skip recipes, so I can totally relate to those of you who like to follow a recipe. However, this is a case where you really need to follow each step as described in the following instructions.
- IMPORTANT! !! Not all cheeses are created equal. Use ONLY mozzarella with a low moisture content and partially skimmed. Make sure the ingredient list includes dehydrated, partially defatted mozzarella. If you don’t follow this rule, you’ll end up with oily, sticky skin. (Successful brands I have tried are Lucerne, Kraft and Frigo Cheeseheads. However, I have had NO success with the Galbani brand).
- Cheese sticks (already breaded) should be frozen for at least 1 hour before cooking.
- Don’t miss the double dunk!
- Be sure to grease the frying basket (or the foil if you are lining the basket as described below). This will prevent the mozzarella sticks from sticking during cooking.
- Use finely grated Parmesan cheese, not grated. (Yes, I’m talking about material that looks more like powder than shreds). My supermarket has packages of 5-6 oz in the specialty cheese section. I use a brand called Boar’s Head.
- Serve the cheese sticks immediately after baking. Like any cheese, mozzarella hardens again as it cools. And we definitely choose hot, crunchy and sticky! YUMMY!

A deep fryer recipe that makes incredibly crispy and delicious fried mozzarella sticks! —> REMARK: This recipe requires you to freeze for an hour or more.
- 6 sticks of mozzarella cheese (MUST be low moisture, partially skimmed)
- 1-2 large beers, packaged
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1/3 cup Mandelmehl
- 1 teaspoon Italian herbs
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Cover the frying basket with aluminum foil if necessary. (This is usually the case with net bags. Detailed instructions can be found in this post).
Roll up the cheese sticks and cut them in half to make two shorter bars. Set it aside.
Beat the eggs in a small to medium bowl. You can start with one egg and add another egg later if needed.
In a medium bowl (large enough to cover the cheese sticks), mix the Parmesan cheese, almond flour, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and sea salt.
Make a dipping station, start with the cheese sticks (pre-cut), then the egg mixture, then the breadcrumb mixture, and finally a small pan or bowl lined with parchment paper.
Dip the cheese sticks, one by one, into the egg mixture and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. I stick the breadcrumbs on the cheese by rolling it between my palms, pressing the almond flour and parmesan layer onto the cheese stick and securing it in place. Repeat these steps a second time before placing the fully coated cheese stick on the parchment paper. In short, each cheese stick should be double washed with eggs and double breaded with almond/parmesan flour.
Once all the cheese sticks are soaked and rolled up, check each one to make sure the cheese doesn’t show through. Turn the ones that need extra breadcrumbs. If the cheese stick is not completely covered, there is a good chance the cheese will leak out during cooking. When the coating process is done, there should be very little of the almond flour-parmesan mixture left. Feel free to use them, and throw away the ones that need a little more love.
Place the cheese stem plate/tray in the freezer on a flat surface for at least 1 hour. This way the cheese doesn’t melt too quickly due to the high heat of the fryer and the outer layer has time to get crispy.
Remove the cheese sticks from the freezer once they are completely frozen. Use cooking spray to grease the frying basket and/or foil and each cheese stem. (I sprinkle the top, then turn it over and sprinkle the other side).
Place the cheese sticks in a hot frying pan. (If you have a smaller fryer, you can divide it into two portions, as the mozzarella sticks will expand a bit during frying.) Fry at 375 degrees (or 380 if your fryer is not at 5 degrees) for 7-10 minutes, depending on your fryer.
I set the temperature on the Philips TurboStar to 375 degrees and bake them for about 8 minutes. After 5 minutes in the fryer, I recommend checking them every minute. If you see that the cheese is starting to ooze, it’s time to remove it.
Serve immediately, leaving the baked mozzarella sticks crisp, melty and sticky. I like to accompany them with a sugar free marinade and ranch dressing. Have fun!
Store leftovers in the refrigerator. Heat in a frying pan for 5 minutes. The leftovers will be deliciously crunchy! On you.

Wrap the frying basket in aluminum foil to prevent sticking.
Some fryers have a flat, smooth basket (with holes) and others have a mesh basket. Some foods get stuck in the wire baskets when cooking. ….. For example, fried mozzarella sticks. To keep it from sticking, I wrapped the basket with perforated foil, which keeps it from sticking. (I have a Philips Viva TurboStar fryer).
This is how it goes:
- Cut a piece of aluminum foil that is slightly larger than the basket. Center the blade on the grid insert.
- Fold the foil over the edges. Press firmly on the edges to secure the film to the insert.
- If necessary, cut out the access sheet on the back of the insert.
- IMPORTANT – use a toothpick to pierce the sheet every 1/4-1/2 inch to ensure proper airflow through the sheet. More holes are better than less.
I don’t want to fool you too much. …. But I really hope you guys like this recipe as much as I do!
We wish you lots of snacking fun!!!
