- Unwrap cheese sticks, put in container and place in freezer while you prep the rest.

- In a small bowl, whisk the egg.  Place coconut flour in a plate.  In a separate bowl, place bread crumbs and season with Italian seasoning, mix well.

- Dip sticks in flour, place in beaten egg, coat with crumbs (1st coat).  Pass one more time by beaten egg and coat with crumbs again (2 coats, optional).

- Once complete, put in freezer for about 1 hour or until they feel frozen. This will help them hold better while baking and prevent the cheese to melt faster.


Pre-heat oven at 400° F. 

Spray baking sheet with Coconut Oil and place cheese sticks.  Spray the tops of the mozzarella sticks with a light coat of Coconut Oil.   Bake for 5 minutes, turn and bake for additional 5 minutes.  Keep an eye on them and check constantly to prevent them from melting!
