Paleo Onion Rings!

  • Servings : 4
  • Prep Time : 0m
  • Cook Time : 4m
  • Ready In : 0m

300g almond meal (grind the meal so it\’s closer to flour – helps coat better).
Two big-ass onions. Slice them carefully and separate the rings. (If I wasn\’t terrified of using a mandolin I would have used that).
2 eggs (beaten in a seperate bowl)
1 table spoon of paprika
1 table spoon of chilli flakes
(You can add more paprika and chilli flakes if you want them spicier).

Season the \’flour\’ with salt and pepper then mix in the paprika and chilli flakes. Dip the onion rings in the egg then coat with the mix before frying them in coconut oil until nice and golden. Let them rest on a paper towel then eat 😀

    I was doubting if coconut oil should be used for frying and found out it is one of the best oils for cooking at high temperatures. I love that we can still enjoy our “guilty pleasures” without the guilt. Thanks so much!

    Thanks for the recipe, I’ll have to try this sometime! The two mods I would anticipate making are to 1) dip and dredge the rings twice, so they get a thicker batter layer and 2) use grass-fed beef tallow for the frying.

    Don’t make these. Find a better recipe. after you dip 5 onions in the whole batch of almond flour is saturated. So you have to keep adding more almond flour. The flour doesn’t stick at all. I had to throw away more than half my onion rings because I ran out of almond flour. Even if you manage to get a few good rings, once you fry them, the batter will just fall right off. By the end of it you have plain onions in a pan. I just gave up in the end and threw everything away because I got so frustrated. Thanks for wasting my time. Anyone with half a brain could come up with a better onion ring recipe than this. “Golden brown”??? I think you accidently made real onion rings brah.

    I made these as a side today, Loved it! You have to eat them quickly though, as they cool you lose the crunch. Luckily that wasn’t a problem for me, I ate them in a flash :)
