  • roughly 16 oz cauliflower florets (around 1 and a half 12oz bags)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
  • sliced green onions, for garnish
  • dill, for garnish


  1.  Whisk together the eggs, almond milk, and 1/4 cup of buffalo sauce until well combined.
  2. Add the almond flour, tapioca starch, spices, dried herbs, salt, and pepper to a shallow dish. Use a fork or small whisk to mix everything together until well combined.
  3. Dip each cauliflower floret, one at a time, into the egg mixture. Make sure that the cauliflower is completely coated.
  4. Next, dip the cauliflower in the almond flour coating. Use your fingers to toss the cauliflower florets in the dry mixture until well coated.
  5. Preheat your air fryer to 375 degrees. Use a cooking brush to coat the air fryer rack with a teaspoon of oil. Add the the cauliflower florets to the basket of the air fryer and cook for fifteen to twenty minutes at 375 degrees until crispy.
  6. Once the cauliflower is browned and crispy, transfer it to a wire rack to cool for a few minutes. Next transfer the cauliflower to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle the 1/4 a cup of remaining buffalo sauce over the cauliflower and gently toss until it is well coated.
  7. Serve the cauliflower with carrots, celery, and your favorite ranch dipping sauce. Enjoy!
