Mmmm mealworm powder. Sounds delicious.
Did anyone else read the reviews on that cricket flour? Seems like only people who ate it themselves have reviewed it. Chocolate chip and cricket cookies doesn't sound like a very pleasant treat to me...
I made my cattle dog pupcakes for his adoption day. This is the recipe I used, only I substituted dog peanut butter for the people kind, I used rice flour instead of oats, and I put a dried cranberry and some crushed wet dog treats on top.
Since it's so little peanut butter, you could probably mix pureed mealworms or crickets and honey to that consistency and use two tablespoons of that instead....

Makes sense, thanks for pointing that out!
And Twobytwo, I swear I didn't just google it! I was on some various websites that sell insects for human consumption, trying to figure out if I could get a wider variety of insects for hedgehogs, and one of the sites had cricket flour available too.
But y'know, if anyone's curious...freeze-dried crickets (and mealworms) become a very nice powder once put through a food processor. And before anyone asks, it was for the hermit crabs, not me!

Just to be clear, the cricket "flour" is more like a protein powder. Apparently it can be used for cookies, but just be aware it may not act exactly like flour.

|twobytwopets||True, but it's possibly cheaper where nutty is. Or there is a more economical gf flour.|

|octopushedge||Word of caution though: because of the gluten-free fad, the price on thing such as rice flour has gone up quite a bit.|
