Baking With Paleo Cricket Flour

Paleo Cricket Blueberry Nut Loaf

Being on the Paleo diet definitely has its challenges…especially when baking! Luckily we found an awesome company called Aketta. They offer cricket flour, an excellent source of vitamins and nutrients. Insects are the most efficient form of protein on earth. With Aketta cricket flour, a little bit goes a long way (a 1/4 – 1/8 ratio to other flour is all you need)! Aside from baking the loaf, we made sure it was 100% Paleo and Whole30 compliant! A traditional loaf may taste good, but it’s far from being good for your body. Here are some health downsides of a traditional non-Paleo loaf:

 

  1. Sugar

  • A traditional loaf is loaded with sugar and artificial sweeteners. This leads to fatigue and migraines. A much better alternative is fruit. In our Paleo, cricket loaf we use real fruit and skip the white sugar!

 

  1. Grains

  • Once you eat white flour, your body converts it into glucose, and unless you're active, it will be stored as fat. This can contribute to fatigue and bloating. Instead, we use almond, coconut and cricket flour – a healthy source of protein and fat!

 

  1. Low Glycemic

  • When you eat a typical loaf that contains high amounts of sugar and carbohydrate, your blood glucose level will sky-rocket, leading to fatigue. To blunt the insulin response, we use low glycemic fruits, such as berries, with a kick of banana and lemon to enhance the taste. You will no longer have to unbuckle your belt after eating this Paleo, cricket treat!

 

We understand eating crickets are unusual! That’s why we foolproofed our recipe, to make it seem like you’re eating a traditional loaf, but without the negative benefits! It will keep you energized, feeling regret-free, and most importantly, it’s delicious! Click here to see the ingredients and directions to make this wonderful loaf.
