This gluten-free, dairy-free and organic brownie mix contains twice the protein of comparable brownie mixes, plus beneficial vitamins and minerals. The reason for this is because the Cricket Brownie Mix is made with a base of cricket flour, which is offers a sustainable and environmentally friendly source of protein, in addition to a range of other nutrients.

While the idea of eating insects has not quite caught on in all parts of the world, cricket flour provides the opportunity for the nutritious ingredient to be slipped undetected into favorite dessert recipes. Cricket Flours is now running a Kickstarter campaign, aiming to bring this inventive brownie mix to the masses by raising a total of $25,000.

Insects are now being incorporated into a range of food products, including snack bars, cakes, protein balls and pasta.
