Air Fried Cauliflower Buffalo Wings


An easy and healthy vegan alternative to the traditional chicken buffalo wing.

My air fryer has become one of my favorite kitchen gadgets, I use it for almost everything that I would typically throw into the oven. It’s my favorite especially during the Summer’s when it’s way to hot to turn the oven on.

Cauliflower stands as a delicious vegan alternative to the traditional chicken buffalo wing. When prepared correctly, the flavor profile and crunchy juicy texture will have you questioning if this is really cauliflower! These wings are prepared with almond flour, Frank’s Hot Sauce, and a few spices and seasoning. These are a great low carb and keto-friendly snack!
