    Hi 18 days ago
    My wife is vegan, I am not, we crush these together once a week maybe more. Perfect (allow the seeds to soak for longer so the corn flakes stick better)

    Not the outcome i expected but very enjoyable nontheless! We made our own improvised sauce (Cashew Yogurt, green onions, tomato paste, mustard, salt, pepper, oregano, lemon- & orange juice & hickory liquid smoke) and it raised the meal to another level <3

    I liked the crunchiness. It was fun to make.
    this was delicious! didnt change hardly anything. maybe added some extra spices for the breading but prettt darn close. i loved it with the buffalo sauce.

    Little less breading stuck than I would have liked. Also, had to double the buffalo sauce to cover everything. Other than that....Great!

    This is amazing I sprayed mine with avocado oil, just to insure it didn’t dry out (: I used Panko style breadcrumbs because I didn’t have corn flakes. I also put Cayenne in the panko so it had a spicy base . It came out amazing . Boys didn’t even miss the meat tonight .

    Turned out great paired it with a salad and baked sweet potato fries. It was crispy, spicy and satisfying.Used recipe exactly as is, thought the flax seed mixture was a little watery but it still worked well. Will recommend.

    THIS WAS SO GOOD! I used whole wheat flour and frozen cauliflower and it turned out great. They were VERY spicy but I thoroughly enjoyed. Will make again!

    This turned out very well, crispy and flavorful. I didn't have cornflakes so I used panko which may be better. Would definitely make again!

    Not as good as I was hoping. I think the corn flakes gave it a weird flavor. If I cook it again I will use breadcrumbs. i will also use a different hot sauce as the one in the recipe was not my favorite and too spicy for my liking.

    This recipe was amazing, we ate it with side salad and it came out perfect. It can get messy. I didn't use a food processor for the corn flakes, but instead I used a bag. The crust is basically perfect. Even without buffalo sauce.

    i followed the video along while i was cooking and it still didnt turn out how it is in the picture. the crust came off and just tasted like season-less cauliflower. It was very messy i didnt get the results i wanted plus i had to clean up the meas

    I really loved this recipe. I put just a little bit of spray olive oil before put them in the oven. I flipped them at the middle time of cooking, and added more olive oil. Also I added the paprika, pepper and salt in the flour, not in the corn flakes.
