Gluten-Free Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower Wings
I know this sounds so strange. I admit when I first heard of it I thought there is no way these Gluten-Free Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower Wings will turn out yummy.. apparently I was wrong or I wouldn’t be sharing it with you, right?! And you can you imagine Gluten, Dairy, Egg, Soy, Nut and Corn Free?!?
I love, love, love buffalo wings dipped in my homemade creamy ranch dressing. The vinegar-tang with the cayenne spice paired with the coolness of the creamy dip.. but if you get them out at a restaurant they are confinement raised chicken wings fried in yucky gluten-contaminated soy oil OR if you take the time to make them at home and who needs all that mess and hassle?
These Gluten-Free Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower Wings are a great alternative to Buffalo Chicken Wings… And it might shock you but these are BAKED and made using my new favorite grain & gluten free flour; Cassava Flour from Otto’s Natural (only use this brand, other brands are not as awesome, trust me!) So, clean up is super easy! …..but if you want to fry them, they are excellent quickly fried in palm oil or lard.

Hi Hayley, I have tried to find the recipe for the hot sauce used in this recipe but cannot find it anywhere. When I click on “hot sauce” it just goes to the same page as this. Can you point me in the right direction to find it please.
It’s just hot sauce, like tobacco or red hot.
how about using coconut flour instead? it’s all i have….
Coconut flour has very different properties and won’t work the same. You could try tapioca or arrowroot starch mixed with equal parts nut flour.
This sounds, as you say, a bit strange. However, you have peeked my curiosity. Would tapioca flour work just as well as cassava flour?
Tapioca is a lightweight flour that tends to get a little gummy by itself. I’d use 50/50 tapioca or arrowroot with finely ground almond flour as an alternative.
