These Paleo Onion Rings are crunchy, salty, and all around perfect!
I’ve been craving something crunchy and fried. It hardly ever happens but I just wanted that salty crunch of something that usually doesn’t make its way into the Paleo diet. These Paleo onion rings are so good, perfectly crunchy, salty, spicy, and just a hint of sweetness.
Did you know that coconut oil is great for frying? It has a very high smoking temperature which makes it the perfect oil to use for these. Just a half cup and you’re good to go. The coconut lends the perfect amount of sweetness to the onions which complements well with the heat from the cayenne pepper. You could also use refined coconut oil (still organic!) so that you wouldn’t have any coconut flavor at all. I hope you enjoy!
Paleo Onion Rings
Please ensure Safari reader mode is OFF to view ingredients.
- 1 large White onion
- 1 cup blanched almond flour
- 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
More TIPS about this paleo recipe in the post above!
- In a small bowl whisk the egg with 1 tablespoon of water.
- In another shallow dish combine the almond flour with the cayenne, garlic salt, and cracked pepper.
- Slice the onion into 1/2 inch rings and separate into individual rings.
- Heat coconut oil over medium high heat in a medium saucepan (you want the oil about a 1/2 inch deep). You can test your oil by dropping a pinch of almond flour into the oil. If it immediately bubbles you're good to go.
- Dip the rings into the egg letting the excess fall off before dredging in the almond flour.
- Working in batches fry the rings for 1-3 minutes or until they are golden brown on both sides. You may need to flip halfway through if your oil doesn't quite cover the rings.
- Drain on a paper towel and try not to eat them all before you're done!
