If it were me, I think I'd try Gina's onion ring batter, which uses Ouzoids BTF mix.
41. Onion Ring Batter-Ginaaaaaa
I decided to try making onion rings with the BTF mix using my old onion ring batter and they came out really good!! They were light and crispy. It makes a LOT of batter so you may want to cut the recipe in half unless you're making them for a big crowd. I only used 2 small-medium onions and still had PLENTY of batter leftover. You could leave out the onion powder to save on carbs. I may try using less corn meal next time too. I didn't time them, I just cooked until golden brown.
Onion Ring Batter
1 1/2 cups BTF 19.2 net carbs
3 tablespoons Cornmeal 21g carbs
3 tablespoons Onion Powder ( I used 2 tablespoons) 15g net carbs
2 teaspoons Salt
1 1/2 cups Milk ( I used calorie countdown) 6g carbs
1 cup Water or more as needed
Blend all ingredients well. Coat onion rings in BTF then dip into the batter. Fry a few at a time allowing room so they don't stick together. I just used a pan on the stove top heated on medium high heat. I needed to add more water to the batter because it thickened up.
61.2 carbs for the batter, does not include the onions.
