  2. Combine chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, maple syrup and garlic in a bowl. Whisk until well combined.
  3. Wash and cut cauliflower into florets and spread out in single layer on prepped cooking sheet.
  4. In separate bowl, combine almond meal, flax seed and almond milk.
  5. Drizzle the almond meal batter over cauliflower and toss to thoroughly coat.
