Whole30 Pork Chops (Schnitzel)

These perfectly crispy fried pork chops (pork schnitzel) are comfort food heaven on a plate! When I make these chops, I always have to make extra. It's a favorite in our household and everyone has to eat more than they need. Serve with mashed potatoes and Green Beans with Mushrooms and Onions. Eat until satisfied. )
Whole30 Pork Chops (Schnitzel)


  • 1 1/2 pound pork loin
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • dill (optional, for garnish)
Prep time:

Cook time:

Total time:
20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings | Prep time: 7 minutes | Cook time: 13 minutes | Total time: 20 minutes


1. Cut pork loin into chops (I had 8 chops).
2. Place each pork chop in a plastic bag (or between two sheets of plastic wrap) and pound with a meat mallet on both sides to make thinner. Season with salt and pepper.

3. In a small bowl, whisk 2 eggs with a fork.
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.
6. Dip each chop in coconut flour, then in eggs, then in flour again. Gently shake off the excess flour.

7. Fry in batches for 3-4 minutes on each side, until nice and golden brown.

I just made these and WOW!! So flavorful and simple to make. I used almond flour and followed the rest of the recipe to the letter. These will be a regular on our table!

Haven't made these yet, but look great! Could almond flour be substituted for coconut flour?

These turned out pretty good! Make sure you shake off the excess flour and use enough oil, like with any fried chops recipe.

This turned into a greasy mushy mess for me. What did I do wrong?

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!
