Cajun Low Carb Onion Rings (Paleo)
Don't worry, the advertisements will NOT show up when you print the recipe.
- 1 large White onion (sliced into rings)
- 2 large Egg
- 1/2 cup Wholesome Yum Blanched Almond Flour
- 1 tbsp Paprika
- 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp Onion powder
- 1/2 tsp Dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp Dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp Sea salt
- 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper (or more if you want them hotter)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (218 degrees C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper
Beat the egg in a small bowl. Mix the almond flour and all spices in another bowl.
Pour a little bit of the almond flour mixture into a third bowl. Dip an onion ring in the egg. Shake off the excess, then press into the almond flour mixture, coating all sides. Place on the lined baking sheet. Repeat with all the onion rings, adding more almost flour mixture from the main bowl as you run out (don't use the main bowl for dipping because the mixture will get soggy before you're done using it). You may need more breading mixture depending on how many rings your onion has and how large it is.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, flip over, then bake for another 8-10 minutes, until the onion rings are lightly browned on both sides. If desired, place them under the broiler for 1-3 minutes to crisp up (watch them closely to avoid burning). *Alternatively, you can fry these in oil for a few minutes on each side to achieve a crispier result, compared to baking.
These onion rings are best served with my spicy appetizer dipping sauce.
