Baked Onion Rings

I love to make these Baked Onion Rings, they remind me of fast food without all that grease. Believe me, these were gone as soon as I served them! They are easy to prepare and the spice blend is just perfect. You will just have to make a batch to understand what I’m talking about. You won’t be disappointed at all.

Baked Onion Rings

I’m crazy about making quick and easy fast food style baked dishes, that are full of flavor and satisfying, see my Baked Jicama FriesOven Baked Potato Fries, and Cauliflower Nuggets, 

I first mixed unsweetened almond milk with tapioca starch, this mixture will make sure that the dry mixture will stick to the onion rings. I used a blend of cornmeal and brown rice flour mixed with a spice blend for a crisp coating, You can substitute with gluten-free panko crumbs. Obviously, you won’t get exactly the same crisp finish as deep fried.

Thick slices of onions are separated into rings, dipped in the almond milk mixture, then into the gluten-free breading mix and then transferred to a prepared baking sheet. I then sprayed the onion rings with an oil spray and then bake to perfection. I suggest that you eat them immediately but seriously there won’t be any leftovers. Save the remaining breading mix in your refrigerator for making a second batch. They taste delicious served with ketchup!

Note: YOU HAVE TO SPRAY OR BRUSH THESE ONION RINGS WITH OIL IN ORDER FOR YOUR ONION RINGS TO LOOK LIKE THE PHOTO. I HAVE MADE THEM COUNTLESS TIMES WITH THE SAME RESULTS. I GUARANTEE 100% THAT THEY TASTE THE SAME AS FAST FOOD OR EVEN BETTER MINUS THE GREASY MESS AND HEALTH CONCERNS!

      Yeast flakes is a non-activated yeast that is used as flavoring and Vitamin B12 supplement for those who don’t include meat in their diet. The best substitute would be a chickpea flour plus an all-purpose seasoning like Mrs. Dash, Herbamare, spike. Depending on where you are located if you can’t find any of the above then use a blend of dried herbs.

  1. I am in awe of how crispy these look! I am a HUGE onion ring fan. I can’t believe these are baked!! Can’t wait to try!

    Good Day Michelle,

    So excited about this recipe! I don’t use yeast or cornmeal. Any alternatives? You also mentioned using tapioca starch in your instructions. However the amount needed isn’t noted in the recipe.

    Thank you

      Thank you Raven, I updated the photos so I missed tapioca starch while transcribing the recipe so I will edit it now for 2 tablespoons. I would just use brown rice flour alone, even almond flour should work but I just didn’t try it with other flours.
