Low Carb Keto Onion Rings

Sharing is caring!

paleo walla walla onion rings

I’ve been in holiday mode and it wasn’t until today that I figured out what in the world I was going to share this week.   Two weeks ago when it was Mr. Bejelly’s birthday, it was HOT.  I’m talking 90 degree weather all week and we were exclusively cooking on the Treager so I didn’t heat up our house.

If you live in the Pacific NW, you know the Walla Walla onions are in stock and I was going to surprise my hubby with some keto onion rings.    That didn’t happen until Sunday when the weather was nice and sunny but in the 70s.   He was pretty stoked and everyone gobbled them down and asked for seconds.  Take your time with the coating with egg wash to get a more even crust on the rings.  I had a hungry  toddler and husband so I rushed it but they were still very tasty.

    I’ve never had a Walla Walla onion. Your recipe looks amazing!

    Those look positively delicious! I’m not usually drawn to onion rings, but these look goooood.

    We love onion rings, and these look so good. I’m not familiar with the Walla Walla onion, but I can use a Vidalia, I guess, if I can’t find a Walla Walla.

    These look really good and we happen to have some coconut flour around…

    I love onion rings – they’re a great change from French Fries (and these are obviously healthier too!)

  6. Kathleen July 10, 2013 at 6:48 am

    Yum! Those look amazing!

  7. Mellisa July 10, 2013 at 8:31 am

    Oh man these look good!

    Onion rings are certainly a weakness of mine, so finding a way to lighten them up is perfect!

  9. Jennifer July 10, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    I absolutely love onion rings. I love your idea to use pork rinds instead of bread crumbs though! genius and I’m sure adds amazing flavor

  10. Angela July 11, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    I can’t get over how crispy they look!

  11. Tiff @ Babes and Kids July 12, 2013 at 8:14 am

    I love onion rings and that these are baked. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen Walla walla onions though. I wonder where I would get them?

  12. Buttoni July 12, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    I’m drooling here. Those look delicious, Kelly!

    I love onion rings! These look delicious.

    I love onion rings. 🙂

  15. Toni July 13, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    These look so good. I am going to have to make them for my hubby who loves onion rings.

  16. Sheri July 17, 2013 at 8:39 am

    They look delicious!

  17. Leilani July 22, 2013 at 3:46 am

    The only time I eat onion rings are when they are in a hamburger. Like a Western burger from Carl’s Jr. But these look yummy!

    Can I substitute something else for the vinegar in your recipes? I do not do vinegar at all in my house, the smell is horrific and makes me ill. That’s right my kids never got to dye easter eggs, we did more inventive eggs. I’d appreciate any help with this. I love a lot of your recipes and am looking forward to trying them, just waiting till I can clear up the vinegar issue though. thanks so much.

      Hi Joyce, you can skip it and just add 1/2 tsp more of lemon juice 🙂 I hope you enjoy them!

    Not the best recipe. Nothing will stick to the onions even with the coconut flour. The end result was not worth the trouble.
