Following the Keto diet? Want a delicious snack or side dish that has the perfect crunch? Potato chips and fries you can forget about, but you can totally enjoy these keto onion rings. They taste just like the real things and are perfect when you want onion rings or a crunchy snack.
I love following keto. It has been one of the best things I have done for myself. The food tastes great, I feel great and I am feeling healthy again. But I have to admit, there are things that I miss. I love having a nice burger with crispy onion rings on the side. With this recipe for Keto Onion Rings, I can have my burger, bunless of course, and have my onion rings, and I am still within my carb count for the day. What is great, is even people who are not following Keto will love these onion rings. You don’t even have to tell them that they are low carb.

What are the Bread Crumbs Replaced With?
In traditional onion rings, the crunchy coating is made with bread crumbs. Since bread crumbs are high in cards and no keto approved, you don’t want to use bread crumbs. Instead, the coating is made with a combination of pork rinds, parmesan cheese and almond flour.

Keto Onion Rings Recipe
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 2-4 minutes per batch
Servings: 6 Net Carbs: 4 net carbs per serving
- 2 Medium onions sliced into thick rings
- ½ c Almond flour
- ½ c Grated parmesan cheese
- 2 oz. Crushed pork rind crumbs
- 1 tsp Garlic powder
- Red pepper to taste
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 2 Eggs beaten
- Oil for frying
Slice two medium sized onions into thick rings. You can make the rings of your onions as thick or thin as you desire.
Beat the eggs, and place them in a shallow bowl.
Place the almond flour, pork rind crumbs, and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Add in the garlic, red pepper flakes if desired, as well as salt and black pepper to taste.
Begin to heat several inches of keto approved cooking oil such as olive oil or avocado oil on the stove in a deep pot or skillet.
Dip each onion ring first into the egg mixture to coat it well, and then into the flour mixture.
Once the oil is hot, place 5-6 onion rings into the heated oil at a time, and cook for 2-4 minutes according to your preferred level of doneness.
Repeat the cooking process with the remaining onion rings, and place them on a rack or paper towel lined plate to cool off and to remove excess oil.
Alternatively, you can bake the onion rings at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes, keeping an eye on them to ensure they come out golden brown.
