4. In a separate plate, mix together coconut flour, onion powder, garlic powder and a pinch of salt.

5. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

These look delicious and take me back to my childhood, where Schnitzel was a common meal often with mashed potatoes or pan-fried potatoes. Getting hungry!
