  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or regular milk)
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3/4 cup Buffalo sauce


  • Preheat oven to 450°F and line a large baking sheet with foil. Place an oven-safe rack on top of the foil and spray generously with cooking spray.
  • Prepare the batter for the cauliflower by combining the flour, buttermilk, garlic powder, kosher salt, & freshly ground black pepper. Whisk until smooth and thickened. Gently toss the cauliflower with the batter, being sure to coat the cauliflower thoroughly.
  • Place the coated cauliflower on the prepared rack, leave space between each one.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the cauliflower starts to brown slightly.
  • When the cauliflower is ready, remove it from the oven and toss in a large bowl with the buffalo sauce. Place back on the wire rack, brush with the buffalo sauce remaining in the bowl. (coat spots that were missed)
  • Put back in the oven for 10 more minutes until browned to your liking.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
  • Serve these baked buffalo cauliflower bites with your choice of blue cheese dressing or ranch and celery.


To make your own buffalo sauce melt 1/3 cup of butter with 2/3 cup hot sauce.
