Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Yield: 3-4 cups of nuggets
- 1 medium cauliflower
- 2/3 cup Daily Crunch Snacks Golden Goodness Sprouted Almonds
- 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water (for flax egg)
- 2 pieces bread
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/3 cup almond milk
- 3/4 tsp paprika
- 3/4 tsp garlic powder
- 3/4 tsp onion powder
- 1 1/2 tsp nutritional yeast
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
- 3/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Start by making your flax egg. Take 1 tbs of ground flax and mix with 3 tbsp of warm water. Set aside.
Add almonds to a food processor and pulse until fine. Make sure to not over process as this will result in making almond butter.
Put almonds pieces in a small bowl. Toast two pieces of bread and add to food processor. Pulse until fine.
Combine bread crumbs and almonds. In a different bowl, whisk together almond flour, almond milk, flax egg, paprika, turmeric, garlic powder, onion powder, nutritional yeast and salt.
Chop cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Dip each individual piece into the wet mixture and tap off the excess. Roll cauliflower into the almond and bread crumb mixture until covered and tap off the excess.
Place the individual nuggets onto the baking sheet. Bake in the oven until golden, roughly 25-30 minutes.
