Cricket Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Would You Eat Protein Cookies Made With Cricket Flour?

These chocolate chip cookies get their extra boost of protein from an unexpected source: cricket flour. That's right — flour made from ground-up crickets. While it might sound questionable, crickets and other insects are on the verge of becoming trendy superfoods. Crickets are full of essential amino acids, magnesium, and protein (twice the protein of beef per ounce, in fact!). In case you were also skeptical about the taste, these cookies were a hit with our staff. Watch the video above for more!
