Buffalo Cauliflower with Homemade Ranch Sauce

Superbowl is right around the corner and you know what that means!? ALL THE APPETIZERS! aka my favorite part. I’ll watch the commercials and eat the snacks haha anyways, I’ve been obsessed with this easy baked buffalo cauliflower! It has a little kick to it with the Hot sauce but if you like that, then you’ll love this. I was even making it and throwing it in bowls with other roasted veggies and it was delish to add to a meal in that way too!

All you need are a few ingredients and a little time to throw this together. I think i’ll be having this on repeat even after Super Bowl snacks are over. This is also completely gluten free, whole 30 approved & dairy free! I made the homemade ranch because store bought ones can have funky ingredients. One that I do like is from Primal Kitchen though. Totally optional to make with this cauliflower but I love it!

Let me know if you make!!


For the air fryer instructions: follow same ingredients, steps, etc. just place in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 10 minutes (moving around half way through). Then coat in hot sauce and place back in the air fryer for additional 5 minutes. That’s it! I use this air fryer.


  • 1 head cauliflower

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup Almond Flour

  • 1/2 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

  • 1 tbsp garlic powder

  • 1 tbsp onion powder

  • For the ranch sauce: 1/2 cup cashews (soaked for 4+ hrs) + 1 lemon + 1 garlic clove + 1/3 cup water + 2 tbsp unsweetened coconut milk + 2 tbsp fresh dill + sea salt & pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Cut the cauliflower into pieces.

  3. Prepare the dipping mixture by putting 1 egg in a bowl and the almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper in another bowl.

  4. In a large bowl, pour the egg mixture over top of the cauliflower. Then add the flour mixture. Make sure pieces are well coated. (You can also do the pieces individually in egg and then flour mixture)

  5. Place on baking sheet.

  6. Bake for 25 minutes until pieces are a little crispy on the edges.

  7. Put the baked cauliflower back into the bowl & pour the hot sauce on top. Completely coating the cauliflower. Pour back onto baking sheet.
