4 Persons

  • 1 medium
    cauliflower head
  • 90 g
    spelt flour
  • 125 ml
  • 125 g
    unsweetened oat drink
  • 2 tsp
    garlic powder, divided
  • 2 tsp
    paprika, divided

salt and pepper

  • 100 g
    Protein Flakes
  • 180 ml
    BBQ sauce
  • optional extras:
    dip of your choice, sesame seeds, fresh herbs


  • 1

    Cut the cauliflower into bite-size florets and wash them.

  • 2

    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.

  • 3

    Put the Protein Flakes into a food processor or blender. Pulse a few times. You should still see some larger pieces.

  • 4

    In a second bowl, mix the Protein Flakes with the remaining garlic powder and paprika.

  • 5

    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.

  • 6

    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.

  • 7

    Take the cauliflower wings out, put them onto a plate and brush with the barbecue sauce.

  • 8

    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.

  • 11

    Take the cauliflower wings out of the oven and brush them all over with barbecue sauce.

  • 12

    Return them to the oven and cook for another 15 minutes at 180° C until crispy.

  • 13

    Plate and serve the cauliflower wings. Garnish with sesame seeds and/or herbs if desired. Enjoy with a dip!
