3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the cauliflower bites start to brown.
4. While the cauliflower bites are baking, prepare the Buffalo Sauce by melting 3 tablespoons dairy-free butter and mix with cayenne pepper sauce and honey. Whisk to combine. Give it a taste and adjust the flavors to your liking. If it's too hot, add more honey. If the buffalo sauce is too sweet, then add more cayenne pepper sauce.
5. When the cauliflower bites are ready, remove from the oven and place into a glass bowl. Toss with the buffalo sauce.
6. Spray the rack with cooking spray again and place the buffalo cauliflower bites back on the rack. Put back in the oven for 10 more minutes until browned to your liking. Remove the buffalo cauliflower bites from oven and allow to cool slightly.
