  • Start by taking your 6 Mozzarella Cheese Sticks and cut them in half.
  • In a shallow bowl, combine the almond flour, Italian seasoning and salt.
  • Add the beaten eggs to a separate shallow bowl.
  • Coat the mozzarella sticks in the egg, followed by the almond flour mixture, then egg, then almond flour being sure to coat them completely and not to have any of the cheese exposed.
  • Set the coated cheese sticks aside on a tray or plate. Coat the rest of the cheese sticks.
  • Place the plate of cheese sticks in the freezer for 2 hours.
  • When you're ready to fry the cheese sticks, heat the oil in your heavy bottom pot to 375F. Add in 6 of the cheese sticks and cook until golden brown. This will only take a couple of minutes. Flip them halfway through cooking for even color.
  • Remove from the pot with a slotted spoon and let drain on a paper towel. Continue cooking the remaining 6 cheese sticks.
  • Serve with marinara.
