 Since it is a very simple and easy recipe, you can prepare it any time without much effort and with just handful ingredients.

Preparing the Cauliflower

First of all wash the cauliflower in a Mixing Bowl and beat the egg with 2 tbsp water lightly. In another Mixing Bowl, mix Almond Flour, Garlic Powder, Paprika, salt & pepper.

Now dip florets with Kitchen Tongs (one at a time) into egg mixture and then coat in the almond flour mix. Note – be careful while coating in almond flour since almond flour tends to clump fast. If you are using All Purpose flour then roll these in the APF mix. 

Now transfer these coated florets on a clean plate. And line the basket of Air fryer with the Air fryer Parchment Paper.

When ready to air fry, transfer these coated cauliflower florets in a single layer in the air fryer basket lined with parchment paper. Spray with oil on top.

Air fry at 390*F for 12 minutes. Flip in between at about 7-8 minutes for even cooking.

Making Buffalo Sauce in a frying-pan

Meanwhile the cauliflower florets are cooking, prepare the Buffalo sauce. Combine butter and Frank’s Hot Sauce in a pan over the heat. Cook till butter melts. It’s ready to be dipped.

Once the cauliflower wings are cooked, toss them in the hot sauce. And place back in the air fryer. Air fry for 2-3 minutes more for the sauce to cook on top of it. It adds to the texture of the wings.

Serve with ranch and some celery sticks on the side.

Tips for Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

  1. Make sure not to over-crowd the air fryer basket. If you crowd it, the cauliflower bites will turn out soggy. This is why you want to cook the cauliflower in small batches with space in between for even air-flow.
  2. Every air fryer model is different. The time can vary by 1-2 minutes depending upon the model. 

Oven Baked Cauliflower Wings

You can bake these in the oven at 450*F for 15-20 minutes. Flip in between for even cooking. Dip in Buffalo Sauce and broil for 1-2 minutes. Serve hot with ranch and celery sticks on the side.

Can I make these in advance?

Yes you can make all the preparations to make these cauliflower wings when ready to eat. Keep the egg bath and flour mix ready in separate boxes and refrigerate till ready to use. Make the Buffalo Sauce in advance and set aside. When ready to air-fry, dip in egg bath, roll in the flour mix and air fry as suggested in the recipe. Heat the buffalo sauce for dipping and air fry again.

How to store the leftovers Buffalo Cauliflower Bites?

Although I doubt that there will be any leftovers, but you can keep the leftovers refrigerated for 1-2 days. Store in air-tight container.

Can I make vegan Buffalo Cauli Wings?

Yes you can. For vegan option, skip the egg bath. Instead you can use flax seed powder mix. Dissolve 3 tbsp flax seed meal in 2 tbsp water. Set aside for 2-3 minutes. Mix well and use it as a vegan egg bath.

Or you can make a thick paste out of almond flour mix with water or yogurt. Dip and air fry.

What can I use in place of Almond flour?

You can use all purpose flour to replace almond flour. But that will not be Low carb then. In case you want to still keep it low carb and use a substitute, then you can use coconut flour instead.

    1. Yummy recipe, tried it for the 1st time in my new Air fryer & we were totally amazed by the results, especially given the name Buffalo cauliflower bites as my family has inly eaten with chicken. Loved the flavor, i used APF. Thank you.

    2. We really weren’t sure what to expect as this is the very first time we’ve air-fried cauliflower. We were skeptical, to say the least. But wow! These were amazing! Crispy and so satisfying. Thank you!

    3. I made one batch of this with coconut flour and one batch with almond flour. My husband’s review is do not make these with coconut flour, unless you have to and are not able to use almond flour. My teenager liked the almond flour ones the best too. They were incredible tasting, imo. I could tell a difference between the two flours and yes I do kinda agree the almond flour I think was a little better. Make sure when you cook them you get them quite crispy, they turn out best in the sauce when they are. I had to air fry them longer than the directions and my air fryer jumps from 375 to 400. I cooked them on 400. I will totally make these again.

    4. Hi Sonal, I am a fan of your recipes and this was another favorite! This is going to be something I’ll be making over and over again. Just like the corn chowder! Absolutely delish and so satisfying.
