Paleo Cricket Blueberry Nut Loaf

Baking with Cricket Flour

Being on the Paleo diet definitely has its challenges…especially when baking! Luckily we have an awesome protein alternative: Aketta! Cricket flour is an excellent source of vitamins and nutrients, with insects as 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! Enjoy a delicious, nutritious treat.
