No one will be able to resist these crispy oven baked Keto onion rings that are coated in pork rinds! Dip in your favorite low carb sauce or top your favorite burger recipe with them!
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 Traeger 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 and his favorite Carls jr primal burger. My husband has been rather obsessed with the primal burger carl’s jr for months so it was a no-brainer to make this recipe.
I contemplated making keto cheese onion rings but just got too lazy to do it.
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.
Watch the video to see how to make them
What you’ll need to make this recipe:
- Walla Walla onion
- coconut flour
- sea salt
- black pepper
- apple cider vinegar
- pork rinds
How to make Keto Onion Rings
Combine the coconut flour, salt and pepper and place on a plate.
In a small bowl combine the eggs, water and apple cider vinegar. Mix well.
Placed the pork rinds in a paper bag or plastic bag.
Take the onion rings and coat them with the flour mixture, then dunk them in egg wash.
Throw them in the bag with pork rinds and shake. Remove and place on your baking sheet.
Repeat until you’ve gone through all the onions.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 – 35 minutes until browned.

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.
*Drool* those look incredible!
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…
This look amazing. Onion rings are like one of my favorite things to eat!
I love onion rings – they’re a great change from French Fries (and these are obviously healthier too!)
I love onion rings, what a great idea to make them at home!
I’ll take an order to go, please 🙂 They look delicious.
Yum! Those look amazing!
Oh man these look good!
Onion rings are certainly a weakness of mine, so finding a way to lighten them up is perfect!
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
I can’t get over how crispy they look!
How did you know that Onion Rings are my fave? These look amazing!
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?
I’m drooling here. Those look delicious, Kelly!
I love onion rings! These look delicious.
I love onion rings. 🙂
These look so good. I am going to have to make them for my hubby who loves onion rings.
I love me some onion rings!! Yumm
They look delicious!
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.
I’m sorry you had issues hun.
Would this recipe work without the pork rinds?
No, you will need some sort of crumb mixture for it to work.
