I saw these on Dr. Oz yesterday and haven't tried them yet but plan to!

Oven-baked Onion Rings
When you're craving something salty, these quick and easy onion rings are sure to do the trick. The batter calls for fiber cereal, instead of bread crumbs. Because the rings are baked, not fried, they're low-fat and low-calorie – the perfect combo!

One serving is 15 onion rings

1 large onion
1 egg
1/2 cup fiber cereal (Kashi nuggets might work here!)
1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp old bay spice

Batter: Blend high-fiber cereal, old bay spice and oregano in food processor until fine. Dip onion in egg, then coat onion in batter. Bake 20-25 minutes at 375 F until golden.

You could also use ground Fiber One Original cereal; it works really well as a breading. :carrot:

What a great idea! I think I'm going to try this with panko crumbs since cereal is a major trigger food for me and I don't like to keep it in my house. Yum! :D
