Keto Mozzarella Sticks

Keto mozzarella sticks on black plate next to marinara.

These keto mozzarella sticks have that classic crispy breading with a melty, gooey cheesy center. We love these dunked in marinara or ranch for an easy appetizer or snack.

Notes

To store these mozzarella sticks for later, freeze as directed and then transfer to a freezer safe bag. Flash freezing on the sheet pan will prevent them from sticking together. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months and fry when ready to serve.
