  • Air Fryer


  • 1 medium head of cauliflower cut into bite-sized florets
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 cup flat beer
  • 4 cups corn flakes ground
  • cooking spray


  • Cut your cauliflower into bite-sized florets. Make sure they're clean and patted dry.
  • In a bowl, add flour, garlic powder, italian seasoning, and paprika.  Stirring constantly, add your beer until it resembles pancake batter (you shouldn’t need much more than a cup).
  • In a blender or food processor, add four cups of corn flakes until coursely ground and place them into a clean bowl.
  • Spray the bottom of your air fryer with cooking spray.
  • Add the cauliflower forets to the batter and stir until they're all evenly coated. One by one, dip each floret into the corn flakes and place into the air fryer.
  • Repeat this process until the air fryer is full and the florets are not touching(you may need to work in batches depending on the size of your air fryer).
  • Spray the tops of the florets, close the air fryer, and set the air fryer function to "air fry" (390 degrees F) for 10-12 minutes. Repeat until all cauliflower is fried.
  • Serve with your favorite dressing, dipping sauce, or buffalo sauce. Enjoy!


*This recipe is best served hot and fresh.  I don't recommend making this ahead of time or trying to save it. 
*If you do wish to save these, I recommend putting them in an airtight container and reheating them for about 3-4 minutes in the air fryer.
