Seriously Delicious Onion Rings

Seriously Delicious Onion Rings

That’s what I’m talking about!

These are amazing.  I like the coconut oil for frying because the sweet flavor naturally goes with onions but you could fry these is whatever makes your pan pop.

Are they kid friendly? Depends on your kid.  My three-year-old was running around saying, “I love onions.  Onions in my beh-lly!”  My seven year old explained pragmatically that he enjoyed the breading but not so much the onion (meanwhile, if it used to fly, swim, graze or run he can throw down like a champ).  Either way, they’re worth your time.  I was going to bake a few to see how that turned out, but my spouse wandered in tried a few and decided it was blasphemy and took over the frying.

Seriously Delicious Onion Rings

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 10 min.

Cook Time: 20-30 min.

Total Time: 45 min.


  • Coconut Oil, for frying
  • 3 Small Onions (about the size of a baseball)
  • 2 Large Eggs whisked
  • 1/3 cup Tapioca Flour
  • 1/3 cup Arrowroot Starch
  • 1/3 cup Almond flour or meal
  • 2 Tsp. Smoked Paprika
  • 1/8-¼ tsp. Cayenne Pepper, optional
  • ½ Tsp. Garlic Powder
  • ½ Tsp. Salt
  • ¼ Tsp. Black Pepper


Place a large heavy-bottomed saucepan on the stove and fill it with oil to a melted depth of about ½ an inch. Heat up to 350 degrees slowly while you prepare the onion.  If it starts violently popping turn it down it bit.  If nothing sizzles with you put a ring in, turn it up a bit.  This can be done over medium-low heat.

Slice the onion into thick slices. Around 1/2—3/4 inch thick.  Separate the rings, discard anything too small to flip.

Whisk eggs together; set aside.

In a separate bowl mix together the rest of the ingredients: tapioca flour, arrowroot starch, almond meal, and spices.

Working in batches, dip slices of onion in eggs.

Place your egg coated onion into the starch mixture.

Carefully place the flour-coated onion slices into the hot oil, and fry for 2 minutes per side, until crispy and golden brown. Remove from oil, place on paper towel to soak up excess oil (if you wish to salt them do so while the oil is hot) and then serve!
