This Low Carb Cheese sticks recipe is going to curb all those mozzarella stick cravings right here and now. Super easy to make with the end goal for a tasty Keto Mozzarella stick dipping into some low carb marinara sauce for you TONIGHT.
These low carb mozzarella sticks are one of my favorite low carb snack or appetizer for entertaining these days. We put a side of our low carb pizza sauce next to it and it is ALWAYS a hit. My family cannot get enough of these..
We love our fried cheese though.
These Keto Mozzarella Sticks can be made 4 different ways.
- Air Fryer – If you’ve got yourself a handy air fryer (affiliate link) I would definitely recommend using it for these low carb cheese sticks! They won’t taste just like your traditional fried mozzarella stick but the results are still VERY delicious.
- Oven Baked – I like this option since everyone has a oven AND some people (like me) hate dealing with frying. It is scary sometimes lol.
- Deep Fry – If you want the WHOLE fried mozzarella stick experience this is the way to do it.
- Pan Fry – Another ‘safer’ option verse Deep Frying like this option results are about similar to deep frying but less scary oil to deal with.
All the instructions for each way is below in our recipe card. Choose whatever is right for you.
HOW MANY NET CARBS PER LOW CARB CHEESE STICK

Total Side Note: If you’ve got time whip together a batch of our low carb buffalo chicken dip recipe. Oh my word I think these two together would be heavenly.

- 8 regular cheese sticks
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp. Italian Seasoning

Crack the egg into a shallow bowl or onto a plate. Using a fork, whisk the egg until the yolk and white are well combined.
In a separate shallow bowl or plate, mix the almond flour, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, rosemary and garlic powder until well combined. Break apart any clumps that might be in the almond flour so you have a smooth mix.
Roll the cheese sticks in the egg and then in the flour mixture.
Roll once again in the egg and then again in the flour mixture.
Twice should be enough to coat the cheese stick, but if you feel it needs more, repeat.
