I thought I would give cricket flour another try so I made some Cricket Flour Cookies. This was a recipe I got from Entofarms. http://entomofarms.com/featured_item/bite-sized-chocolate-chip-cricket-cookies/
This recipe is a great way to get people to try insect protein! Insect protein is a great substitute for protein powders. It is also full of vitamins and minerals so adding a scoop into your regular recipes will add extra nutrients to your diet. Start by measuring the dry ingredients.
You will need 1 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup cricket powder. Mix in 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/4 tsp salt.
A separate bowl, measure out 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup softened butter. Brown sugar helps make the cookies chewy. Blend the butter and sugar together until it is a light brown colour.
To this mixture, slowly add 1/2 cup white sugar and blend well.
Next combine one room temperature egg and 1 tsp vanilla extra.
Mix this into the butter mixture.
The final step is to add the dry ingredients. Slowly combine the flour mixture and butter mixture.
When the mixture is almost combined, add 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. Mix everything together.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees C. On a baking tray, portion out 1 Tbsp cookie dough. The cookie dough can be gently rolled into a ball before placing onto the tray.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a cooling rack. Try these cookies out! You will never know that these cookies have cricket flour. They are chewy and delicious! Enjoy.
