    [Link to more pics](https://imgur.com/gallery/HnisWEb) I’ve wanted to try Halloumi Fries for ages and decided to give it a go today for the first time. I never really follow recipes and use them more as guidelines so I just stumbled upon this by accident. They really fill a void of having fries/crisps as I haven’t had them for 10 weeks now so i’d recommend them for sure :) Ingredients I used (I live in the UK - see pics as well): •225g Tesco Lighter Halloumi (contains less carb than full fat Tesco Halloumi) - this is the full pack •The Groovy Food Organic Coconut Flour** - 20g used for coat fries (only 9g added to MFP as you can see in one of the pics, 11g of the flour was left in the bowl) •1/2 tsp Tesco Smoked Paprika (not considered for MFP, as before, not all was used to coat the fries so it is neglible) •Pinch of Tesco Chilli Powder Mild (neglible for MFP) •30g KTC 100% Pure Coconut Oil (whole amount added to MFP **I think the coconut flour is essential to the taste so may not taste the same without it Method: Please note: I am not a chef, I make things up as a go so be kind lol and also my taste buds are different so maybe it won’t taste the same for you but I’d love to hear what you think or recommend for future :) 1. Cut the fries as you please, I cut mine into thing strips 2. Place in bowl/tupperware and whilst on scales add all coconut flour, chilli powder and paprika (I had 11g of this mixture leftover so keep this in mind for your macro count) 3. I initially fried them in a shallow frying pan after the coconut oil had melted. This spat, A LOT, as expected but the amount of oil I added got soaked up straight away and then the rest of the chip wasn’t being cooked as I liked to I transferred to the oven 4. Added to oven on baking paper at 225 degrees Celcius for 15 mins 5. Take fries out, enjoy 😍 They are a bit salty which is because of the salt solution the halloumi was kept in but I still think they taste great. Macro’s wise, they are high kcal so not intended for a day where you have few calories to spare. Also a guideline as different brands will have different macros! All chips made up as above: 871 kcal 69.2g Fat 3g Net Carbs 55.7g Protein

    You’ve peaked my interest, hows the texture? Crunchy? Also by Cheeto I’m guessing you mean the “Flamin’ Hot” kind because of the paprika?
