Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

I am not a person who prefers hot and spicy foods. However, there is something about Buffalo sauce that keeps me going back for more. When I first tried Buffalo cauliflower, it was at a restaurant on a family vacation. I decided that I wanted a healthy appetizer as my dinner, but that is not what was served. At that point I didn’t care, it was delicious! I thought to myself, I can totally make a guiltless version of this meal when I get back home.

It’s so simple to make and soon became one of my go to veggies that I love sharing with friends and family. I have also been known to take some of this cauliflower and create veggie tacos and have also used it to top a gluten-free pizza as well.

This roasted buffalo cauliflower is a healthier take on wings that can be eaten alone, topped with sour cream, ranch dressing or your favorite dip.


  • 1 head of cauliflower chopped into florets

  • 1½ teaspoons garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 tablespoons avocado oil or refined coconut oil

  • For the sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • ½ cup hot sauce


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper.
  • In a large ziplock bag or bowl, combine garlic powder, salt, pepper and oil. Add in cauliflower and shake to coat.
  • Place cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer with space between them. Bake until lightly roasted, about 20 to 25 minutes, flipping them over halfway through.
  • While they are cooking, mix the butter and hot sauce in a separate bowl.
  • After the cauliflower is done, brush on the sauce as light or as generous as you would like and place back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
