Makes 12 muffins.
This is an old classic that can’t go wrong. For an extra boon to your day—and an uptick in energy—tuck a little cricket protein into the morning muffin mix. Each muffin is a meal in itself!
You may also want to chop up some dried crickets and add to the muffin mixture. With all the delicious and sweet fruity ingredients, it will give your muffins that hint of roasted nuttiness to add to your umami-flavoured experience.
Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Generously grease or line 12 muffin cups.
In large bowl, combine flour, cricket powder, sugar, cinnamon, ground ginger, baking soda, and salt. Stir to blend.
Stir in grated carrots, grated apple, plumped and drained raisins, toasted nuts or seeds, and coconut.
In separate bowl, whisk eggs, oil, and vanilla. Stir into flour mixture. Divide evenly among muffin cups. Sprinkle with a few extra toasted nuts, if you wish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.

The sweet potato mixture can be made a day or two in advance and reheated in the microwave before serving. Pick of the crops For sautéing purposes, you want to use pears that keep their shape when heated. Bosc and Anjou are two good options. Fuji, Cortland, Honeycrisp, and Empire are excellent apple choices for heating in the skillet, as they won’t turn too mushy.
