Recipe: Healthier Buffalo “Wings”

This spicy fave can be done with less calories but all the flavors that make it a hit for dads, sports fans and just about everyone.

Healthier Buffalo “Wings”


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken tenders
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 beaten egg
  • Splash of almond milk or coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste, as well as Frank’s Red Hot (buffalo) sauce
  • Celery, cut into sections about 2-3 inches long
  • Walden Farms blue cheese or ranch dressing


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wet chicken down with cold water. You can soak it in a little salt water overnight, but at least get it wet. 
  2. Mix egg and milk in a small bowl.
  3. Dip the chicken tenders in egg mixture, and then coat the chicken tenders in the almond flour. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes on a lightly greased sheet or use parchment paper.
  5. Enjoy with hot sauce and dressing for dipping, as well as celery. The cool crunch of the vegetable makes it a great palate-cleansing accompaniment.
