Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’

Do you have an air fryer?
Do you LOVE it?!!
What type do you own?
How often do you use it?

We purchased one this past summer, and it’s been invaluable! My six kids use it almost every day to simply heat things up or to create a “masterpiece” of their own imagination.

I REALLY love not needing to heat up our big ovens.

Super SIMPLE, and nearly PERFECTION with everything we cook in our air fryer.

I know there’s going to be A TON of questions about a good make & model air fryer to purchase.

I recommend spending a few minutes on Amazon reading reviews, and making a decision based on your personal needs and wants.

Here are a few options that we’ve got our eyes on right now:

Go Wise USA Air Fryer

Omorc Air Fryer

Cosori Air Fryer

Makes about 4 servings


  • 1 medium cauliflower head, broken into florets
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce of choice
  • 1/4 cup tomato puree
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 2 Tbsps clarified butter or ghee, melted
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste about 1/4 teaspoon each
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup almond flour, more if needed
  • olive oil or avocado oil spray
  • Carrot sticks and celery, for serving (optional)


Lightly spray air fryer basket lightly with and preheat to 380 degrees f. Thoroughly rinse the cauliflower and cut into bite-sized florets.

Set up 2 dipping stations, one bowl with beaten eggs and another shallow bowl with almond flour.

Dip your florets first into the egg, allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl, then coat with the almond flour, pressing a bit to make sure they’re coated.

Arrange the florets into your air fryer basket, leaving some space in between, so that they can crisp up.

Spritz your coated florets with cooking spray and cook/air fry for 12-18 minutes, flipping the florets halfway through with tongs until golden and crispy (cooking time will vary depending on the size of the florets and your air fryer).

Be careful not to overcrowd the basket, as it will take even longer to cook. Cook in smaller batches if you need to.

Meanwhile whisk hot sauce, tomato puree, melted butter/ghee and seasonings together in a large bowl.

Once your florets are finished cooking, place them into the bowl with your homemade buffalo sauce and gently toss until evenly coated.

Serve with carrots, celery sticks, and homemade ranch dip.
