These easy keto spicy peanut cauliflower bites make a delicious low carb, dairy-free and gluten-free appetizer, side dish or snack. Cauliflower florets roasted in a spicy peanut butter sauce are very tasty and ready in 30 minutes. They are are great for Game Day too.

I see a lot of cauliflower "wings" recipes which slightly disturb me as a vegetarian and a love for cauliflower. I guess this is because the sauce used is similar to chicken wing dishes?I would rather call them cauliflower bites then wings. But feel free to slather this sauce over your chicken wings too! The spicy peanut butter sauce is very similar to a Satay sauce

I have used this sauce on chicken too (breast strips, not wings) for the Chief Taster which he enjoyed. You could take this sauce and cook it on any part of the chicken or a vegetable you wanted.I loved these keto-friendly spicy cauliflower bites and label them as a snack or starter sincethere is a tendency to scoff the whole plate in one go (might be just us though..)!

INGREDIENTS

For the peanut butter we used 100% and smooth. Crunchy peanut butter could be used but always check the ingredients for added sugar.

I didn't add salt to this recipe as I find the tamari sauce adds a salty taste, but by all means, season these cauliflower bites to your own taste.

VARIATIONS

Feel free to play around with the spices. Some hotter chili powder would be a great addition if you like the heat. Just beware, that thesespicy peanut cauliflower bites are very delicious and it is very hard to only eat a couple.

You could play around with the spices and add extra heat. Perhaps ginger or cumin would give it an extra flavor. A dash of our sugar free hot sauce would certainly add a kick!

STORAGE

If you have any leftovers, store them in an air tight container and they will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.

CAN THESE CAULIFLOWER BITES BE MADE AHEAD?

To make ahead, mix the spicy sauce, toss the cauliflower florets and keep them in an air tight container until you are ready to cook.

These tasty keto cauliflower bites can also be cooked in the air fryer. Keep the temperature the same as the oven and air fry for 10-15 minutes.

CAN ALMOND BUTTER BE USED?

If you have a peanut allergy than almond butter or even sunflower seed butter could be substituted.

    Ok you're my new best friend. My first ever baking experience today: I made the almond/coconut/flax bread. A decent outcome for a first attempt. A bit dense, though. I could only manage one slice for breakfast, and I'm still full five hours later. The sunflower chia bagels weren't as good. I'll get there - will take me a little time.

    But this -- THIS will be my go-to once-a-week recipe hereon. Looks absolutely divine. Also, don't have tamari in my pantry so I'll use some tamarind pulp instead for the umami kick. I need my peanut/peanut butter fix at least once a week, and I know peanuts are not allowed when strictly keto, but I'm not strictly keto and I work out five days a week and I know I'm rambling and this is the answer to all of my no-peanut woes. I just KNOW it'll taste divine.

    And I know I'm repeating myself, but you're my new best friend. I do hope our paths will cross someday and I get to break bread with you in person! For the treasure trove that is your blog, I am thankful. Please know you will always have a place at my dinner table xoxox
