I love Buffalo Wings! It’s one of my all time favorite dishes – perfect for game day, parties and more. I won’t pass up on good buffalo wings, especially the hot and spicy ones. It’s one of those finger foods that you just can’t stop eating once you’ve started. I know. All the calories, huh?

So when I came across this low calorie recipe for Buffalo Wings from Joy Bauer‘s latest book, From Junk Food to Joy Food, I knew I had to try it. She actually has two low calorie versions – one is still using chicken with a little bit more calories, and the other uses cauliflower. I watched her make the dish on the Today Show and heard Natalie or Savannah repeating over and over again how good the cauliflower buffalo wings were. So I knew I had to try that first. And with only 115 calories as opposed to 1100? It’s a no-brainer!
