Healthy Air Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Air Fried Mozzarella sticks use low fat cheese string and won-ton wrappers to make a healthy version of this go-to fried food quickly and easily!

Cheese has always been my favorite food.

And of course, if you want to make any food better...what do you do? Slap some breading on it and fry it up!!! So naturally, I have also always loved mozzarella sticks.  I distinctly remember being in high school (back when I was still overweight) and going out to Applebee's with my friends on a Friday night to order "HPAs" or half-priced appetizers.  I was ALWAYS the one who ordered the mozzarella sticks and then hoarded them all to myself when my friends were trying to pass around and share everything. Whoopsies! Hey, my love for cheese runs strong and there was no shame in my cheese hoarding game ;)

My love for cheese STILL runs strong but ever since losing 100 pounds and trying to maintain my new lifestyle...I've had to stop ordering QUITE so many mozzarella sticks.  Well, at least opt to share them with others if I do order them cause #YOLO and #BALANCE haha.

BUT! Finally: a game changer for you other fried cheese lovers out there! I made mozzarella sticks in my AIR FRYER (I have a Philips brand - affiliate link) using pretty healthy ingredients and they actually taste so good that you THINK they should be a guilty pleasure...but they really are not!

I mean, maybe you still shouldn't eat 9 of them in one sitting (not like I EVER would have done such a immediately after making and photographing this recipe...nope...I would never ever have just sat and ate all nine of these and licked my fingers afterwards and went into a blissful cheese coma when I was done...heh. Nope, never!) but they are made using low fat string cheese, won ton wrappers and NO extra oil since they are cooked in an air-fryer, so overall still pretty good for you! A recipe is listed at the end of the post, but here are some step-by-steps for you!

To make these delicious little fried cheese sticks I used low fat cheese strings from Sargento and won ton wrappers I found near the tofu section at my grocery store.

I cut each cheese string in half to fit in one won ton wrapper

Place half of the cheese string in the middle of the wrapper

And then wrap it up like a pig in a blanket, folding the ends in on each end.  You can use a little water or egg whites to help the wrapper stick to itself a little better

Place the sticks in the bin of your air fryer, spray with cooking spray, and cook at 390 degrees for 5 minutes.


I seriously CANNOT get enough of my air fryer! Best investment ever. Anything that helps me still eat fried cheese and be on track for my diet?!! GOD SEND. Seriously if you are even half considering ordering one, DO IT!! Check out my other air-fryer recipes, and here's the affiliate info again on the fryer I use!
