Keto Crispy Cheese Balls

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Serves: 4

Difficulty: Easy

Course: Snack / Appetizer

Cuisine: Keto / Low-Carb

kcal: Approximately 220 kcal per serving


  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • Cooking oil (for frying)


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix everything together until well combined.
  2. Add the egg to the cheese mixture and mix well until it forms a dough-like consistency. You should be able to easily shape the mixture into balls.
  3. Using your hands, take a small amount of the cheese mixture and roll it into a ball. Repeat this process until you have used up all the mixture, making approximately 12-14 cheese balls.
  4. Heat cooking oil in a deep skillet or saucepan over medium-high heat. The oil should be about 2 inches deep.
  5. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the cheese balls to the skillet, making sure not to overcrowd them. Fry the cheese balls in batches if necessary.
  6. Fry the cheese balls for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  7. Use a slotted spoon to remove the cheese balls from the oil and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  8. Allow the Keto Crispy Cheese Balls to cool slightly before serving.

Note: For a fun and flavorful twist, you can add herbs like chopped fresh parsley or basil to the cheese mixture before shaping the balls.
