Buffalo Wings Can Fit into Your Diet:

As some of my readers may know, I have been on this Keto diet for about six weeks. I am always looking for ways to cook my meals and still have the same great flavors without the extra calories. I am sharing the recipes I have been cooking that keep me within my diet. Healthier versions of the comfort foods you love and doing so in a way that lets everyone enjoy them. With that in mind, I made these crispy air fryer Buffalo wings with these diets and likings in mind:

Paleo & Grain-Free: it Paleo Friendly

Egg-Free: no breading and no batter, so no eggs necessary

Gluten-Free: skipped the batter and breading, which makes these air Fryer chicken wing recipes naturally gluten-free.

Dairy-Free: I included a dairy-free option for the Buffalo Sauce, so there’s no need to miss out on the sauce you love if the butter in the sauce doesn’t love you back.

Whole30: You can enjoy crispy Buffalo chicken wings while eating on Whole30. Baking powder is not technically compliant if it contains corn starch, so we give you tips for making a simple, Whole30-compatible swap for the baking powder, so you get all the crispiness without the cornstarch.

Cooking Tips & Substitutions

To make your Air Fryer Buffalo Wings Paleo-friendly and Whole30-compatible, substitute one teaspoon baking soda + 2 teaspoons cream of tartar for the one tablespoon of baking powder in the recipe

To make the Buffalo sauce dairy-free, replace the butter or ghee with an equal amount of coconut oil.

I ALSO ADDED RECIPE FOR BLUE CHEESE DRESSING. It is also one of my favorite dipping sauces to get along with my Buffalo Wings.

When your wings are done cooking, transfer to a large bowl, add your sauce and toss to coat.

Blue Cheese Dressing:

In a medium bowl, you want to whisk together your sour cream, mayonnaise, and buttermilk.

Now add the garlic powder and mix in the, crumble the blue cheese and stir it into the dressing.

You want to taste the sauce and adjust the seasons as needed: add the blue cheese, pepper, and salt until you are happy with the flavor.
