Keto-Friendly Buffalo Cauliflower Bites: A Healthy & Delicious Appetizer

For those of us who are trying to stick to a ketogenic diet, finding delicious appetizers can be a struggle. Most low-carb recipes are either unbearably bland or too heavy on the fats. But today, I’m here to share with you a truly delicious keto-friendly appetizer: Buffalo Cauliflower Bites.

These flavorful bites are not just low-carb and keto-friendly, but also vegan and gluten-free. The recipe is simple, yet flavorful. It’s the perfect way to enjoy a tasty snack without compromising your dietary goals.


For the Cauliflower Bites:

1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 cup tapioca flour

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 cup non-dairy milk

For the Buffalo Sauce:

1/2 cup hot sauce

2 tablespoons vegan butter (or ghee for non-vegan)

1 tablespoon coconut sugar

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/4 teaspoon black pepper


1. Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a shallow bowl, mix together almond flour, tapioca flour, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper until combined.

3. Dip each cauliflower floret into the non-dairy milk, then into the almond flour mixture, making sure it is fully coated.

4. Place the cauliflower florets onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.

5. While the cauliflower is baking, make the buffalo sauce. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine hot sauce, vegan butter, coconut sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika and black pepper. Heat until the vegan butter is melted and all the ingredients are combined.

6. Once the cauliflower bites are done baking, remove from the oven and transfer to a large bowl. Pour the buffalo sauce over the cauliflower, and toss until fully coated.

7. Serve the Buffalo Cauliflower Bites warm with a side of vegan ranch for dipping. Enjoy!
