Onion rings are a classic snack that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. To make them in an air fryer, you will need:

– 1 large onion, sliced into rings
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1 teaspoon paprika
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
– 1 cup buttermilk
– 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
– 2 tablespoons olive oil


1. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F.

2. In a shallow bowl, mix together the flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

3. In a separate shallow bowl, mix together the buttermilk and panko breadcrumbs.

4. Dip each onion ring into the flour mixture, then into the buttermilk mixture, and then back into the flour mixture.

5. Place the onion rings in the air fryer basket and spray with the olive oil.

6. Cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping the onion rings halfway through.

7. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.


– For a crispier texture, double-dip the onion rings in the flour and buttermilk mixtures.

– If you don’t have buttermilk, you can substitute with regular milk.

– For a spicier version, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the flour mixture.

– If you don’t have an air fryer, you can also bake the onion rings in the oven at 400°F for 15-20 minutes.
