Oven baked crispiness
In the interest of making these a "healthier" version of buffalo chicken wings, we're skipping the deep fryer and taking the oven baked approach.
But worry not, we're pulling out all the stops to achieve peak oven baked crispiness.
This Crispy Oven Baked Buffalo Cauliflower uses a combination of corn starch and gluten free flour to create that perfect crunchy layer coating the cauliflower.
The result is absolutely drool-worthy when tossed in my super simple 3 ingredient buffalo sauce.
