How to Make Low-Fat Mozzarella Sticks

Make these delicious mozzarella sticks without the added calories.


  • Step 1: Blend Blend the cereal in the blender to a fine, bread-crumb-like consistency, and then pour it in a bowl.
  • Step 2: Add seasoning Add the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper, and set it aside.
  • Step 3: Cut mozzarella sticks Cut the string cheese sticks in half.
  • TIP: Use fat-free soy string cheese if you prefer.

  • Step 5: Place on a baking sheet Spray a non-stick baking sheet with cooking spray and place the cheese sticks on the sheet.
  • Step 6: Bake Bake the sticks in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Serve them with your favorite marinara or pizza sauce.
