Zane, the extreme sports instructor in my novel If You Only Knew, is keen on visiting Faith's coffee shop in the village not just because he fancies her....but also because he has a thing for her fabulous blueberry muffins...
I persuaded Faith to share her recipe:
Blueberry Gluten Free Muffins
*2 cups of medium oat bran
*1 cup of milk (can be diary free milk alternative for a vegan version of the muffins)
*2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
*2 teaspoons of baking powder
*2 medium size bananas
*A few generous handfuls of blueberries
*Pinch of cinnamon or mixed spice
1. Put the oat bran and baking powder into a bowl.
2. Mash the bananas in a separate bowl, then add the milk and oil.
3. Add the dry ingredients into the bowl with the banana, milk and oil.
4. Add in your chosen optional ingredients (see above).
5. Spoon the combined mixture into paper cases or a muffin tin.
6. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 180 degrees centigrade.
I'd love to share with you some info about If You Only Knew...
Is the past about to destroy the future for Faith when she discovers her new boyfriend and her first love are in business together?
Faith owns The Coffee Pot in the outdoor adventure sports mecca of Derbyshire's Peak District. She hasn't had a man in her life for a while, as she has been too busy serving cakes to weary rock climbers and mountain bikers to find time for the complications of a relationship with the male of the species.
Then Zane and Matt arrive on the scene as the new owners of the Carrdale Adventure Sports Centre.
Dating Zane, she soon discovers he’s not the Mr Perfect she thought he was - and why is he so reluctant to talk about his past?
As for Matt – well, to Faith he isn't Matt at all because he was a completely different person when he broke her heart all those years ago.
With her new boyfriend and her first love running Carrdale as business partners – Matt out to cause trouble and Zane keeping secrets – Faith struggles to keep the peace between them whilst trying to figure out how she feels about the two men in her life…
