Crispy Halloumi Fries

Halloumi fries are so easy to make in just 25 minutes making for the perfect snack! Fry them right on the stovetop – no deep fryer needed!

Prep: 10 minCook: 15 minTotal: 25 min
Servings: serves 4 - 6 1x


  • 16 oz. halloumi cheese (2 x 8oz packages)
  • 1 cup oat milk (or other favorite milk)
  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour (cashew flour or all-purpose four are also a great option)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • sunflower oil for frying
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (optional)
  • marinara sauce for dipping!


  1. Whisk together the milk, flour, garlic powder, paprika and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a shallow bowl.
  2. Allow to sit for a couple minutes to thicken up.
  3. Meanwhile, pour the oil into a pan until it’s about 1/4 – 1/2 inch deep. Turn the heat to medium-high heat until the oil is hot.
  4. Coat the halloumi fries in the breading mixture, flipping them to cover both sides.
  5. Place the fries into the hot oil and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes, then flip to cook the other side.
  6. Use tongs to gently remove the fries and place onto a plate lined with a paper towel.
  7. Sprinkle with remaining salt.
  8. Once you’re done frying, plate the fries and top with grated parmesan and oregano.
  9. Serve and enjoy warm!
  10. I served these fries with some marinara sauce for some fun dipping but have fun with different dips!
