There is nothing that taste like an onion ring about this even the onions and selves or dried out. I have no idea where they got the picture but it wasn't by baking them and following this recipe.

We couldn’t get enough of these crunchy onion rings in the EatingWell Test Kitchen. Try any seasoning blend that you have on hand to add flavor to the breading or substitute 1 teaspoon salt instead. Seasoned whole-wheat breadcrumbs are available in some supermarkets and natural-foods stores. If you can find them, try them in place of the plain breadcrumbs and seasoning blend.

If you want onion rings, just fry em in light oil.
this is really bad. not healthy. taste like a undercooked stale pretzel? not good at all
Ok, so this technique is always going to lead to dry onion rings. Especially compared to traditional fried onion rings.
Why not shallow fry them in a healthy oil like rapeseed or maybe coconut oil? (havent tried coconut oil because its expensive, but I have heard once or twice that its really healthy choice)
They are onion rings after all.

I made them once and me and my whole family of 10 threw up. I made them about 2 months later, and they threw up again. We normally don't throw up often, probably once a year per person, but this is a terrible recipe. STY AWAY FROM THESE ONION RINGS
We're gluten-free so I replaced the flour with gluten-free flour. For no-frying, recipe worked out really well.
