Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

  • 1 pack halloumi cheese (250 g/ 8.8 oz)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour (40 g/ 1.4 oz)
  • 1 tsp paprika or zatar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • 1 - 2 tbsp virgin coconut oil, ghee or butter for greasing

Note: Instead of coconut flour, you can use a combination of almond flour and flax meal (like we did in this keto recipe) or ground pork rinds.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 °C/ 320 °F (fan assisted) or 180 °C/ 350 °F (conventional). Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and add the coconut oil (or use baking spray). Place in the oven to melt whilst you prepare the halloumi.
  2. Slice the halloumi into 1 cm (1/2 inch) sticks (ideally cut into 8 or into 12 pieces to get 2 or 3 fries per serving). Dry on kitchen paper. Low-Carb Baked Halloumi Fries
  3. Mix the paprika or zatar, coconut flour and seasoning in a bowl. Coat the halloumi sticks in the grain free flour mix. Low-Carb Baked Halloumi Fries
  4. Crack open the egg in a bowl and whisk with a fork. Low-Carb Baked Halloumi Fries
  5. Dip the breaded halloumi into the egg, shake off any excess then carefully roll again in the remaining coconut flour. Repeat for all the sticks.

  6. Carefully roll in the hot coconut oil on the baking tray (or use baking spray) and bake in oven for about 12 - 15 minutes until golden and warmed through. Turn every 5 minutes for even cooking. Low-Carb Baked Halloumi Fries
  7. Serve with Marinara Sauce or Guacamole. Tastes best when served warm straight from the oven. As the halloumi cools down it will become rubbery — reheat if needed. Low-Carb Baked Halloumi Fries

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.
