Easy Healthy Onion Rings – Oatmeal and Ramen

Yikes! Almost a full week back and my jetlag is still going strong.  Let the salty treat recipes continue!

Today I’ll share a quick and easy way to make healthy, baked onion rings using oatmeal and ramen seasoning.  Nontraditional, I know, but the oatmeal provides a crispness/crunch that becomes even more awesome when you throw in a bit of a spicy ramen kick.  Low in calories and super delicious!

Full recipe after the jump…


  • half a red onion (for one serving) sliced into rings
  • a quarter cup of oatmeal
  • one egg
  • two tablespoons of milk
  • cayenne
  • cracked pepper
  • paprika
  • chicken bouillon or sea salt
  • some ramen seasoning (extra points if you have the ones with dried veggie chunks)

Combine the oatmeal and seasoning and spread it in a shallow bowl or plate to prevent chunks from forming when you dip in your milk/egg covered onion rings.  Beat the eggs with the milk.

Dip the onion rings into the milk/egg mixture before covering with the dry oatmeal mix.  The easier way is to lay the egg covered onion on top of the oatmeal mix and to sprinkle another layer of oatmeal mix on top.  Lay the battered onion on a greased baking sheet or parchment paper.

Put the onion rings into the oven for 10-15 minutes at 300F/150C or until slightly golden  You’ll then want to turn off the oven but allow the onion rings to continue cooking until they turn golden brown.

Cool and enjoy!  A yummy guilt-free snack that’s quick and easy.
