Transfer your new carpet cleaner into a 500ml jar or container to keep it dry. A funnel helps.
Shake sparingly over the rug or carpet, leave it for a while (anywhere from 1 hour to over night) before vacuuming it up.
**Don't have a food processor? A bullet blender, coffee grinder or a mortar and pestle work fine. Just make ¼ of the original recipe.
PIMP MY RECIPE:
*Add a few drops of your fave essential oil, vanilla essence or dried lavender.
*sprinkle onto your winter quilts and blankets when you take them out of storage to freshen them up.
Essentially these little beauties scratch 2 itches at once - porridge and pancake!
There's often no time for porridge in the mornings at our house, so I like to keep some of these oat pancakes in the freezer - then I can pop them in the toaster for a minute and frisbee them at my children as they fly out the door!
I usually make the batter the night before, and pop it in the fridge so it's ready to use the next morning. The overnight soak means that the apples and oats get beautifully soft.
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl then add wet ingredients and mix well.
Add a tablespoon of the batter in a hot lightly oiled pan. When bubbles pop through the surface, flip them over and cook for another 20 secs before putting them on a serving plate.
Enjoy with a dollop of greek yoghurt, cinnamon sugar, apple or banana slices… whatever you fancy.
Tip: make extra and freeze them. Then on busy mornings pop them in your toaster. Or while still frozen, butter and wrap them and pop into lunch boxes.
PIMP MY RECIPE:
If apple & cinnamon isn't your thing, try currants, mashed banana, choc chips, frozen berries, sultanas, peanut butter or coconut flakes.
