Key Ingredients

  • Cauliflower: You’ll need a whole heat of cauliflower for this homemade cauliflower hash browns patties recipe. Pick it over and remove any dark spots, and remove the core. You can also buy riced cauliflower, if that’s easier.
  • Coconut Flour: This serves as the binding agent. Plus, it’s gluten-free! Not a fan of coconut flour? Use any Paleo flour you like. Almond flour would also work well.

How To Make Them

These patties couldn’t be any easier to work with. The secret is to really work at getting all the moisture out of the cauliflower. You can use a paper towel, tea towel, cheesecloth, etc.

Squeeze that baby good and get every last drop of water out. This is key to ensuring that these cauliflower hashbrown patties hold together. Otherwise you’ll end up with a soggy mess.

Then, you’ll simply mix all the ingredients together and form them into patties. They will be soft and you’ll be questioning the recipe but they do hold up when they’re fully baked.

Serving Suggestions

Serve these potato free hash browns with your eggs, pancakes, or as a treat in the day (I totally did this). I liked them with a little bit of Valentina Hot Sauce, the kids preferred it with ketchup.

How do I store the leftover hashbrown patties?

Store in an airtight container (I like these ones) in the fridge for 3-4 days.

How do I hear cauliflower hash browns?

You can reheat these in the microwave, but they will be softer and could fall apart. If you would like them to hold their original shape, reheat them in the oven or on a frying pan.

Do these freeze well?

Yes, they can be stored in the freezer for a month. I recommend flash freezing them.

How do you flash freeze hashbrown patties?

Place the hashbrowns on a baking sheet and freeze. Then remove them, place them in a resealable bag, and place them back in the freezer. This prevents them from sticking together.

Are these homemade hashbrown patties crispy?

The baked cauliflower hashbrown patties are not crispy, but they do hold their shape and can be picked up. If yours are crumbling, try cooking for a little longer and let cool completely.If you want them to be crispy, try baking them for longer, or cooking them in an air fryer.

    1. I haven’t tried it another way (yet). I would try with avocado oil and whatever flour you have on hand. Start with 2 tablespoons of oil and see if you need to add anymore. Coconut flour is thirsty, so depending on what else you use – you may be ok wth a smaller amount of oil.

  1. So you don’t cook it? I read a recipe where it said microwave it for five minutes first so I’m wondering. I have crumbled cauliflower in a bag.

    1. Hey Kay,

      I didn’t. I processed it until it was smooth and squeezed out the excess water. Then baked it once all the ingredients came together.

      I haven’t tried it cooked and then processed but it could work. It would just help remove the moisture. That being said, I haven’t tried it so don’t come for me if it doesn’t work 😂

    1. I haven’t tried a vegan version, you could try a flax egg or chia egg but I’m not sure if it will hold together. Let me know if you do!

    1. Leave out the salt or half it, whatever works for your diet. You may need to flavor it a little extra with something you love to give it a little extra oomph. 🙂

  2. Hi, I love the idea of cauliflower hashbrownn patties. But I’m wondering if I’m missing something in the making of these. You talk about getting the moisture out of the cauliflower which I totally understand. BUT you don’t say anything about cooking the cauliflower first, just making it into cauliflower rice. I figure if its raw there isn’t much if any moisture for removing as you describe. Is it supposed to be cooked first and then follow the rest of your instructions?

    1. Hey Sandra,

      This is a great question! The cauliflower is raw, but when you rice it, you’ll notice that it still has a ton of moisture. 🙂 Squeeze it out as best you can so it stays into a patty shape, you’ll be surprised with how much is in there.
