Buffalo Cauliflower "Wings" with Healthy Blue Cheese

After seeing this fun recipe on Fit Foodie Finds, we had to give it a spin using sweet potato flour!   Crispy buffalo bites of cauliflower with a delicious homemade blue cheese - makes it a perfect game day snack.  We chose it as a Superbowl snack option this year.  It would be fantastic with pumpkin flour as well so take your pick!
