In a small bowl, whisk eggs with heavy cream. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, cheese, garlic powder, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper. Set aside.
Line a medium baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon a small amount of breading onto your sheet pan (just enough to cover the bottom of a cauliflower bite).
Dip a piece of cauliflower in the egg wash. After it is fully coated, shake it a few times, making sure to shake off any excess egg drippings back into the egg bowl before adding it to the breading. The reason for doing this is that you don't want the egg drippings going into the breading. The moisture will cause the breading to clump and they will no longer stick to the cauliflower.
Place the cauliflower piece onto the small mound of bread crumbs, applying a little pressure so those breading sticks to the bottom of the cauliflower.
Wipe your hand that was holding the cauliflower so that your hand is also dry before touching the breading. Spoon a small amount of breading over the cauliflower and then use your fingers to press the breading onto the cauliflower until it is fully coated. It is important to keep the breading in a separate bowl, to prevent it from getting wet.
Carefully set the cauliflower aside onto a clean part of your baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cauliflower.
To deep fry the cauliflower, pour 1 1/2 inches of cooking oil into a pot. When the oil reaches 350F, add a few pieces of breaded cauliflower. You may need to stir the cauliflower a few times to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Cook a few minutes until a deep golden brown. Remove cauliflower with a slotted spoon and place onto a paper towel lined plate. Repeat with remaining cauliflower.
Spray the basket of your air fryer with cooking oil spray to prevent cauliflower from sticking. Place cauliflower in a single layer into basket, spacing them about 1/2 inch apart. You may need to split the cauliflower in more than one batch. Spray the surface of the cauliflower before closing your air fryer. Coating the outside in oil will help the breading crisp up and brown. Set your air fryer to 375F. Cook for about 12 minutes or until crispy.
Preheat your oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place cauliflower pieces on baking sheet in a single layer, spacing about 1/2 inch apart. Spray surface of cauliflower with cooking oil spray. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until cauliflower coating is crispy.
