  • 1 head cauliflower cut into small bites
  • cooking oil I use olive oil
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil. 
  • Add the melted butter, buffalo sauce, and salt and pepper to taste to a bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Add the cauliflower bites to the air fryer. Spray with cooking oil. Cook for 7 minutes on 400 degrees.
  • Open the air fryer and place the cauliflower in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle the butter and buffalo mixture throughout. Stir.
  • Add the cauliflower back to the air fryer. Cook for an additional 7-8 minutes on 400 degrees until the cauliflower wings are crisp. Every air fryer brand is different. Be sure to use your personal judgment to assist with optimal cook time.
  • Remove the cauliflower from the air fryer and serve



  • Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket. Cook in batches if needed.
  • If you find the cauliflower is not crisping, spritz more oil.
  • The longer you cook the cauliflower, the more it will crisp.
  • You can add breading (almond flour or breadcrumbs) if you wish.
