Mini Lemon & Valencia Orange Raspberry Cricket Scones

Welcome to our new Mini Lemon & Valencia Orange Raspberry Scone recipe as featured in our new Cricket Flour Cookbook: All Cricket, No BULL…  For this recipe, we wanted to put together a new scone recipe using cricket flour to add additional protein and flavor to this new treat.  When you buy cricket flour, it can be hard to think of how it can be incorporated into new recipes and that is what we want to help with in these recipes.  This cricket flour recipe features the delicious taste of raspberries, lemon, Valencia oranges, and more in a cricket flour scone recipe that makes 20-24 servings of our mini scones and mini muffins.

Take a look at the ingredients and directions below, and if you have any cricket flour questions feel free to reach out to our team directly and we would love to talk with you!
