Recipes

Some of our favorite ways to incorporate 100% cricket protein into our diets and transform every day favorites into Super Human Fuel!  

Cricket protein powder can be easily incorporated into many daily dishes.  Add 2 tablespoons to your favorite smoothie or stir into oatmeal for a protein boost equivalent to two whole eggs.  Or substitute cricket powder for flour in baked goods; we recommend swapping about 20% of your flour for cricket powder to increase protein and drop carbohydrate levels in breads, pastries and pastas.

Our whole Crispy Crickets are delicious on their own, but can also be easily added to salads or used as a great alternative protein choice for tacos.
