Apples cleanse the colon of bacteria, viruses, yeast, and mold. They also support the liver, digestive tract function, and brain health.

Carrots were originally medicine, not food.They’ve been used in potions and remedies for the stomach, bladder, jaundice, the easing of menstruation, and cancer.

Cinnamon comes from the bark of trees in the Cinnamomum family and has been used as both a medicine and a spice. Research suggests that daily use can have positive effects on blood sugar levels, digestion, immunity, and heart health.

Coconut oil provides a boost of healthy fat that can energize and satiate.It is a strong antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial food.

  2. Hello, When you say gluten free flour would i be able to use cassava or oat or sorghum flour. I have sprouted rice flour too, Which one would be best/ Thanks for the recipe, Lin

  3. Gluten free flour or GF baking flour mix? The mix would have xanthan gum for binding. If you use just the flour, like sorghum or coconut, alone, will it not make muffins dense and gritty? I haven’t had good experience using just one kind of GF flour in a recipe. Can you specify which flour you used in this recipe? Thanks.

  4. I made these using a bag of gluten-free flour I picked up at a local store and they were delicious!! From the optional list I added walnuts, a scoop of Clean Sourced Collagens powder, the ginger, and the cup of gf rolled oats. They would have been even better if I’d had raisins on hand (but no one in my house likes them except me). Made a full 12 muffins. I hid some away in the freezer otherwise they would have all been gone in a flash!
