  • Cut the cauliflower into bite-size florets and wash them.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix the flour, water, and oat drink into a smooth batter. Add 1 tsp each of garlic powder and paprika. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Put the Protein Flakes into a food processor or blender. Pulse a few times. You should still see some larger pieces.
  • In a second bowl, mix the Protein Flakes with the remaining garlic powder and paprika.
  • Dip the cauliflower florets into the batter, tap or shake to remove extra batter, then roll each one in the Protein Flakes to coat it.
  • Now put the cauliflower wings into the air fryer. Don't overload the basket - make sure to leave space between the florets. Roast for 15 minutes at 175° C. You may need to work in batches if not all the florets fit in at once.
  • Take the cauliflower wings out, put them onto a plate and brush with the barbecue sauce.
  • Put the wings back into the air fryer and cook for another 5 minutes at 175° C.
  • Directions for the oven:
  • Preheat to 180° C, place the florets on a parchment-paper-covered baking tray, and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Take the cauliflower wings out of the oven and brush them all over with barbecue sauce.
  • Return them to the oven and cook for another 15 minutes at 180° C until crispy.
  • Plate and serve the cauliflower wings. Garnish with sesame seeds and/or herbs if desired. Enjoy with a dip!
  • Enjoy!
