Baked Flaxseed Onion Rings

1 large yellow onion
1 cup ground flaxseeds
1/2 gluten free Bisquick
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon dried onion
1 tablespoon dried garlic
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 to 1 teaspoon Tabasco
1 to 2 cups of water (give or take)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 400
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

-Cut the onion in rings.
-Mix everything except the Parmesan cheese
-Add enough water until the batter is thick. You may need more or less. The flaxseed really absorbs the water so let stand for about 5 minutes to see how thick. If you added too much water and the batter is too thin, just add some more flaxseeds or Bisquick until it is the consistency you like.
-Dredge the onion rings in the batter. The batter will fall off a little so if you want ,once you place your dredged onion rings on the baking sheet, add a little of the batter with a spoon on top of the onion rings.
-Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 25 minutes. Halfway through you might want to turn over the onion rings. The baking time will depend on how you like your onion rings. Some of the rings may stay a little soft in the middle. They will not cook exactly like a deep fried ring, but they are tasty and healthier for you.
-Once the onion rings are just about cooked to how you like them, take them out of the oven and add the Parmesan cheese. Put back in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes.
-I had these with some ketchup and some turkey pepperoni.
