Healthy Mozzarella Sticks
Who says our favorite cheesy foods have to be off limits? Mozzarella sticks are awesome for every occasion, and make for a delightful snack that most of us have been accustomed to since childhood. Now that we’re mature college girls who are more health conscious, we can still have the cheesy snack we all love, guilt-free!
What you need
- 12 sticks of string cheese in your choice of cheese, go for the low sodium kind if you want to be extra healthy
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp of flour
- 5 tbsp of bread crumbs
- 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese
- A dollop of olive oil, or cooking spray
- Cut the cheese sticks in half, making 24 slices, then freeze the slices in the freezer until completely frozen
- Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a separate bowl to combine the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese
- To bread the cheese sticks: First dip the frozen cheese stick into the flower, then into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture
- Once all of the 24 sticks are coated, place them on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil coated with a few drops of olive oil or sprayed with cooking spray (this will keep cleanup to a minimum, and keep the sticks from sticking!)
- Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 4 minutes, or until crisp. They need to be watched closely so they don’t melt completely!What makes them healthier? They’re home cooked with less butter, they’re baked instead of fried, and cheese sticks are a naturally lower calorie cheese snack. You can also add italian spices or herbs to the recipe, adding them into the bowl with the breadcrumb mixture. Serve with marinara sauce and enjoy!

Came across this Apple Pie Baked In the Apples recipe, and decided to make it for dessert to celebrate 3 sisters-in-law coming into town tonight. They were delicious- being able to eat the container of your dessert is weirdly satisfying, but I wish there had been more crust- if it would have adhered properly, I would have wrapped the entire apple in pie dough before I put it into the oven. Anyways, the Granny Smith apples were awesome, but the Pink Lady was the best cause it was so sweet. Mine are gluten free and vegan (made with almond flour) but this is pretty easy to replicate with your personal fav pie dough and apple filling recipe- just cut the apples up extra small for the filling, and for the apple “bowls”, cut off the top, use a paring knife to score the inside of the apple pretty deeply without cutting through to the other side, then use the spoon to scoop everything out.
