Smart Ingredient Choices: At the heart of these mozzarella sticks lies light string cheese made from part-skim mozzarella, providing a lower-fat alternative to traditional full-fat cheese sticks. The use of whole wheat flour and Italian-style breadcrumbs adds extra fiber and nutrients, while the addition of herbs and spices infuses the coating with irresistible flavor.

Portion-Controlled Indulgence: With each mozzarella stick coming in at just 1 point on the  program, these indulgent treats allow you to enjoy a satisfying snack or appetizer without worrying about excess calories or points. Their portion-controlled nature makes them a smart choice for those looking to indulge in moderation while staying on track with their weight loss journey.

Crispy Perfection: The secret to achieving crispy perfection lies in the double coating process and the brief stint in the freezer before baking. This ensures that the mozzarella sticks come out of the oven golden brown and perfectly crispy on the outside, while the cheese inside remains gooey and melted, creating a mouthwatering contrast of textures with every bite.

Versatile and Crowd-Pleasing: Whether served as a pre-dinner snack, party appetizer, or game day treat,  1 Point Mozzarella Sticks are sure to be a hit with family and friends alike.
