They are so versatile that you can play around with the ingredients and it will not mess up the recipe too much.
I always like to add in extra hidden nutrients so my kids are getting a boost of super powers.
Here are my fave hidden ingredients:
This provide an extra source of high quality protein. Protein is the second most plentiful substance in the body (after water) and is needed in the growth and repair of every cell in the body. So why not add two tablespoons of this goodness to your muffins. Best thing about this brand is that it is completely flavorless, so it won’t affect the taste of your gluten free muffins.

I sometimes place about 5 brazil nuts in the mixer when making my muffins. They are one of the healthiest nuts available on the market, despite their high-fat content. The improve heart health, stimulate the digestive system, promote cell growth & repair, improve hormone function and boost the immune system (and these are only a few of the benefits!)

Ground Milk thistle is a natural herb that has awesome antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is commonly used to detoxify the body, especially the liver. It helps boost glutathione levels (called the mother of all antioxidants by Dr Mark Hyman), which is one of the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease (1). I add 1 – 3 tsps into baked goods or smoothies. Find my fave brand here>>
