Calories 340kcal


  • 2 yellow onion (large, sliced in 1/3" rings)
  • 4 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 eggs (whisked)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 1/2 cups pork rind (large, sliced in 1/3" rings)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil


  • Peel and slice onions into 1/3" rings.
  • Discard outer layer of onion and separate the inner rings.
  • -Place all rings in a bowl and pour 1/2 cup heavy cream over the onions.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • This will reduce some of the onion's sharpness and create a milder flavor.
  • -Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with tin foil and spray with nonstick coconut oil cooking spray.
  • Set aside.
  • -Use three bowls to create an assembly line to coat the onion rings in batter.
  • In the first bowl, place coconut flour.
  • In the second, combine the whisked egg with 1 tbsp heavy cream.
  • In the third, place the crushed pork rinds and stir in garlic powder, onion powder and paprika.
  • -One by one, dunk the onion rings into coconut flour, coating the entire piece.
  • Then dunk the same ring into the egg mixture, shaking off the excess egg wash.
  • Finally, dunk the ring into the pork rind crumbs, taking care to make sure the rinds stick to the ring.
  • (Keep in mind, these won't be completely coated like typical onion rings due to their lack of AP flour.
  • As long as they have some breading, they'll cook nicely.) -Move each coated onion ring to the greased baking sheet.
  • Make sure the rings are placed in a single layer with no stacking.
  • Discard any remaining breading and coconut flour, as they've been in contact with egg.
  • -When all rings are coated, drizzle each of them with a bit of avocado oil to help crisp in the oven, place baking sheet in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • -While the onion rings are cooking, prepare the sriracha dipping sauce by combining the mayo and sriracha and stirring until combined.
  • -As the onion rings near the 18 minute mark in the oven, check on them to make sure the crust looks golden brown but not burned.
  • If they look golden, take them out of the oven and allow to cool for a minute before you take them off the baking sheet.
