Mozzarella Stuffed Breadsticks

Sharing is caring!

Mozzarella stuffed breadsticks using coconut flour as the dough surrounding the strips of cheese.   A great appetiser or snack. 

This is one of my favourite recipes from my coconut flour eBook that is also featured on a couple of coconut flour recipe websites.  These healthy low carb and gluten free version of mozzarella stuffed bread sticks are just delicious served with a side of Marinara sauce too. 


When I baked these the Chief Taster had only returned back from a business trip that Saturday late morning.  He was ravenous since he had been travelling since the early hours and was demanding food.   Since these breadsticks are made with coconut flour and psyllium I had a pretty good idea they were going to be filling.  When I put a couple of sticks on his plate I was met with crys for more.   So I did.  He stopped for a break after three.  After another two he finally declared himself full. 


The trick with these is to seal the dough well.  I pressed it together and sealed it with a clean wet finger.  A few sticks still oozed a bit of cheese.  

I also tried these with a different brand of coconut flour and the result was not as good, so it many vary.  I was using a local coconut flour and the dough was not as thick, resulting in only 6 sticks being made.  I am always amazed how there can be a slight variation in results when baking with coconut flour.



                                                                             Cut into 8 pieces


                                                                                 Roll to about 8 inches long


                                                                              Place a strip of Mozzarella on the dough


                                                                  Wrap the dough around the cheese and seal well

      Yes you could but you will need to increase the volume.

    Saw same thing on another blog in another language, using the exactly same photos…
    Do you think the cheese here is Mozzarella?

      It’s a fine art but worth it! The first time I made these, the stars must have been aligned as it the dough fitted perfectly. Another time, it was a different case..probably because I used a different coconut flour and rolled it out too thin. The third time I was back on track!

    Just a query about the mozzarella stuffed breadsticks! It says 6 x 6inch strips of moz but cut dough into 8 pieces & wrap each cheese stick with dough like a parcel. I therefore cut 2 extra pieces of cheese & made the 8 rolls but most of the cheese oozed out. I presume they were too small & thin & 6 pieces would be the correct size?
