Oven Baked Paleo Onion Rings


One large onion

1/2 cup of ground flax

1/2 cup of almond flour

1 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Ground pepper to taste

1 egg, beaten with 2 Tbs water


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 

 Get out 2 shallow, rimmed dishes (pie pans work great!). In one dish place egg beaten with water. In the other dish place flax, almond flour, sea salt, garlic powder and ground pepper. 

Lay onion on its side, with stems horizontal. Cut ends off of onion and peel outer layer to get to the freshest part of the onion. Keeping the onion on its side, cut into 1/2" slices and separate each slice into individual rings.

Working assembly line style, with fork dip each ring into the egg mixture, shake off excess and dip into flax/ almond flour mixture. Place on lined baking dish. Continue unto all rings have been coated. Re-coat until you're happy with the amount of coating (adjusting to your desired amount of coating; the more coating, the crispier the rings will be!) or until mixtures are used up.

Bake rings 20-25 minutes, flip and continue baking until onions are soft and coating is crispy. Check after about 10 minutes and add in extra time as needed, ovens vary so cooking times will as well!
