Crispy 'Nashville Hot' Cauliflower Bites
1 head of Cauliflower, rinsed, dried and cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 c gluten free steel cut oats
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
½ tsp Sea salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the oats in a blender or food processor and grind them into a flour consistency.
Combine the oats with the cayenne, brown sugar, salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder in a bowl and stir well. Be sure to break apart any clumps in the flour.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs together with a whisk.
Take one piece of cauliflower at a time and place it in the eggs coating it completely. Allow any excess liquid to drip off then drop it in the flour mixture, again coating it completely. Shake off any extra coating and place it on the baking sheet.
Repeat step 5 until all of the cauliflower is coated.
Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, turning halfway through.
Serve plain or with ranch dressing to cool you down!
