  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon dried sage
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • 4 veal cutlets pounded lightly to ¼-inch thickness (chicken or pork will also work)
  • ½ cup arrowroot starch/flour
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 4 tablespoons refined coconut oil


  • In a bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, seasonings, and salt to make the “breadcrumb mixture.” Pour onto a large plate.
  • Create an assembly line of cutlets, arrowroot, eggs, and breadcrumb mixture. Working one at a time, cover the cutlets with arrowroot, dip in eggs, and coat with the breadcrumb mixture.
  • Heat oil in a skillet on medium-high. Slowly drop 1-2 cutlets at a time in the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through. Place on paper towels or a rack to drain the excess oil. Repeat with remaining cutlets. Serve warm.
