Ok, don’t hate me for another cauliflower recipe ( I know I’ve been on a roll with them the past couple weeks), but I’ve been seeing so may Buffalo Cauliflower Bites Recipes on Pinterest lately, that it had me craving them and I had just had to make some. Last year, I did a Buffalo Cauliflower Poppers Recipe that was similar, but I wanted to make a few changes. My new Buffalo Cauliflower Bites turned out amazing…my husband and I could not stop eating them. By using a light flour coating, instead of the Panko, and baking the bites with some of the hot sauce, these ended up having a lot more flavor and a very nice texture. Of course, these do not taste exactly like the hot buffalo wings that I’m sure you’re craving, but these Buffalo Cauliflower Bites are waaaaay healthier, and are just 3 Points for a nicely sized serving. Plus, sometimes, just that hot sauce taste will help satisfy that craving. These are the perfect Weight Watchers Super Bowl Recipe to add to your game day food table this year. Serve with celery and low calorie blue cheese dressing. Enjoy!
