Directions:

  1. Combine buttermilk and drumsticks in a large zip lock bag and seal, marinate for one hour (lay flat and turn over after 30 minutes.)
  2. Preheat oven to 450F
  3. For version one: combine ½ cup flour and seasonings in a large zip lock bag.  Take chicken out of marinade bag.  Add one drumstick to the flour bag and shake till well coated.  Lightly shake off excess coating and place on a lightly sprayed parchment lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining drumsticks. 
  4. For version two:  combine ½ almond flour, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper, ½ teaspoon ground white pepper, ¼ teaspoon cumin in a large zip lock bag.  Add one drumstick to the flour bag and shake till well coated.  Lightly shake off excess coating and place on a lightly sprayed parchment lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining drumsticks.  You will likely need to make a second batch of seasoning to coat all the drumsticks.
