Cauliflower Buffalo Bites

I went a little wild with fried, cheesy food last Friday and Saturday and on Sunday I decided I needed a clean slate. So each day this week I’m taking a good, hard look at what I’m putting into my body and how it makes me feel.

I love making these Cauliflower Buffalo Bites for dinner, even though they’re really best as an appetizer for a large group. They’re fun, spicy, and make the transition from fried chicken wings to healthy eating a little bit easier.

Ingredients (serves about 4-6 people as an appetizer):

  • Small head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1-2 eggs
  • Hot sauce (I used Frank’s) to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut cauliflower into small florets.
  2. Scramble egg in one bowl and pour almond flour in another.
  3. Pour cauliflower (several at a time) into the egg, and then coat each floret individually with almond flour, removing any excess flour, and place on greased baking sheet.
  4. Continue this process until all florets are coated. (Add more egg/almond flour if needed.)
  5. Cook 20 minutes (or until desired level of crispiness), flipping halfway through.
  6. Drizzle hot sauce over florets and serve with ranch (I used Tessemae’s), celery, carrots, or any veggie of your choice.

These are so good, and perfect for a game day gathering (football starts soon, right?) They’ve always been a hit when I’ve made them for friends and family. When I’m feeling lazy, I skip the almond flour/egg part and simply season them with salt and pepper, and they’re still very tasty even then!
