Exact Ingredients (+ Possible Substitutes)

Making Buffalo Cauliflower Bites is fun and easy. You need a big head of cauliflower for the main part. For the batter, mix all-purpose flour or gluten-free flour with water and spices like garlic powder, paprika, and salt.

The buffalo sauce gives that spicy wing taste. Mix your favorite hot sauce with melted butter. If you’re making vegan buffalo wings, use plant-based butter. Add a little fresh lemon juice for a tasty twist.

If you’re looking for gluten-free snacks, use flax or ancient grains flour for the batter. Make sure to change the batter’s thickness as needed. You can also swap some ingredients for healthier options like:

  • Almond flour
  • Cornstarch
  • Vegan butter
  • Olive oil


Making Buffalo Cauliflower Bites is super easy. It’s great for both beginners and pros. Start by preheating your oven to 450°F. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or grease it to keep the cauliflower from sticking.

Cut your cauliflower into small florets. Mix flour and water in a bowl for batter. Add spices like garlic powder, paprika, and a bit of salt. Coat the cauliflower in the batter.

Place the florets on the baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes. They should turn golden and crispy.

Now, make the buffalo sauce. Combine hot sauce, melted butter, and lemon juice in a saucepan. Simmer until mixed. Make it spicier with more hot sauce. Sweeten it with honey if you like.

After baking, toss the cauliflower in the sauce. Put them back on the sheet. Bake for 10 more minutes. This makes them even crispier.

For an air fryer method, cook at 375°F for 15-20 minutes. This makes them super crispy. Perfect for dipping in ranch with some celery and carrots.

Serve the Buffalo Cauliflower Bites hot for the best taste. This recipe makes them crispy and delicious. Enjoy making and sharing them with friends.
