Perhaps one of the biggest challenges of being gluten-free is finding enough gluten-free fast food recipes to keep you feeling satisfied. When you’re not prepared, it’s all too easy to slip back into bad habits, reaching for convenience instead of doing what you know is right for your body. Following the gluten-free diet means that you need to take a bit more care in food preparation. You can’t always rely on ready-to-eat foods. Of course, boredom can be another big challenge.

Onion rings are a classic side dish or appetizer, but they’re typically loaded with fat from the frying as well as the bread crumbs that you can’t eat if you’re gluten-free. This gluten-free recipe is pretty easy to make and saves you some calories by using the oven rather than the deep fryer. The coating is made from quinoa flour and quinoa flakes, so there’s a new taste to them that you’re bound to love. Since they come out of the oven so crispy, most people won’t even miss the crunchiness from the fryer.
