  • 1/2 cup gluten free Italian-style dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 10 mozzarella cheese snack sticks
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tbsps half and half or whole milk
  • 1 cup refined coconut oil


  1. Cut the mozzarella sticks in half and freeze for 30 minutes.
  2. Place the coconut oil in a skillet or small sauce pan and heat over medium heat until very hot, but not smoking.
  3. While you're waiting for the oil to heat, place the arrowroot powder into a shallow bowl, the breadcrumbs and salt into another bowl, and the egg and milk into the last bowl.
  4. Beat the egg and milk mixture together with a whisk.
  5. Stir the salt into the breadcrumbs.
  6. Dip a frozen mozzarella stick into the egg mixture, then the arrowroot. Dip it into the egg again and then into the breadcrumbs.
  7. Carefully place a few cheese sticks into the hot oil, turning with a metal spatula to cook evenly. Fry for 45-60 seconds each. Watch them carefully to make sure your cheese doesn't escape out of the breading.
  8. Serve warm with marinara dipping sauce.
