Baked Onion Rings – Healthy and Delicious

One of my favorite restaurant side dishes in baked onion rings.  I love the crispiness of the outside and the hot and delicious onion flavor inside the coating.   But the original version is full of fat and calories.  These baked onion rings have all the flavor of deep fried ones but are much more healthy.

Oven Baked Onion Rings

Lightened up Baked Onion Rings.

I wanted something that had a crispy texture, so instead of deep frying, I chose to bake these.  The taste comes from the nice mixture of coating seasonings.

I have used egg whites and almond milk, to help the seasonings stick to the onion rings and combined them with ground oatmealto lighten up this delicious recipe.

The end result was a nice crunchy and savory onion ring that makes a great side dish or appetizer course for a party.
