Ingredients

  • 1 medium head cauliflower chopped into 1-inch florets
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp buffalo sauce I use Frank's Red Hot
  • 2 tbsp oil like avocado or refined coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • dipping sauce of choice I recommend ranch or bleu cheese

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk buffalo sauce with 2 tablespoons of oil. Then in another large mixing bowl, pour the buffalo mixture over the chopped cauliflower and toss to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together almond flour, garlic powder and salt. Sprinkle this mixture on top of the buffalo-coated cauliflower and toss again, ensuring to coat the cauliflower well - this is key to making it crispy!

In the air-fryer:

  • In two separate batches, cook cauliflower in an air fryer at 350F for 5 minutes. Once 5 minutes is up, remove from fryer to toss.
  • Place back in the air fryer for another 5-7 minutes at 350F until crispy.
  • Serve immediately with celery sticks and a ranch or bleu cheese dressing of your choice!

In the oven:

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Spread the buffalo cauliflower evenly onto 1-2 lined baking sheets, depending on their size.
  • Bake cauliflower for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and toss then place back in oven for another 15 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with celery sticks and ranch or bleu cheese dressing of your choice!
