Low-Carb Baked Halloumi Fries

Step 1Preheat 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.

Step 2Slice 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.

Step 3Mix the paprika or zatar, coconut flour and seasoning in a bowl. Coat the halloumi sticks in the grain free flour mix.

Step 4Crack open the egg in a bowl and whisk with a fork.

Step 5Dip the breaded halloumi into the egg, shake off any excess then carefully roll again in the remaining coconut flour. Repeat for all the sticks.

Step 6Carefully 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.

Step 7Serve 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.
