  • Stir almond flour, eggs, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper into cauliflower until well-combined; form into 1/4-cup sized patties.

  • Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry patties in a single layer until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining patties and olive oil.

Cook's Notes:

You can really play with this recipe. Try adding shredded cheese, shallots, roasted red pepper, etc.

Substitute equal parts of coconut flour and tapioca flour for the almond flour, if desired.

I added cheddar cheese and Romano cheese along with garlic powder and Herbs de Provence. I cooked it on a little higher than medium heat for 7 minutes per side. They held together and turned out crispy and delicious Read More

I thought the flavor was pretty good, but these would not stay together. I'm not sure what the issue was. I like that they are healthy and great for my low-carb lifestyle. These made a good sub for hashbrowns at breakfast. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Read More

Stayed together. Spooned into skillet. Needed a little something extra in the mix cayenne dominated flavor. Next time I ll try adding a little something and cut back in cayenne. Maybe some peppers or green onions for a little more flavor Read More

Pros: it's like a healthier version of a potato pancake it only requires a few ingredients and it's very customizable in terms of spices. Cons: really really dense. (I actually made a full meal out of four of these things because they're so filling.) Also because cauliflower has such a mild taste you end up tasting the eggs fairly strongly which I didn't like. Verdict: I wouldn't make this again simply because I like other preparations of cauliflower better...but if you're looking for something healthy and filling this is definitely worth a try! Read More

So thoughts on it not binding: let the cauliflower cool and gently press into cheese cloth or let dry on paper towels. I found the residual water to keep it from forming. It fell apart so I sautéed the entire serving in a skillet with olive oil and stirred in some white sharp cheddar as a last ditch rescue effort. It turned out pretty amazing I must say. I like that this was low carb but I think almond flour just doesn't mimic flour well enough... Read More

Our family loved this and followed the extract recipe. Spooned batter into the skillet and it formed pancakes that were easy to flip. Even my picky 10 year old asked for more. Read More

Will make again! Decided to drop 'dough' into the hot grease by the teaspoonful - came out crispier and more flavor. Did add some garlic/herb seasoning (about a teaspoon) and some parsley flakes (just sprinkled - not measured). Even my family like them - and they aren't Ketoing it. Read More
