Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

This delicious, easy-to-make snack is a family favorite. It’s also low in calories, since the cauliflower is baked instead of fried. Brown rice flour or chickpea flour coat the cauliflower; both ingredients are higher in fiber than all-purpose flour, helping you feel full longer, and higher in protein too.
