The flavors were so great in this salad, I hadn't made candied pecans before, and they were delicious!
I decided a couple hours later that I was still hungry and wanted something sweet. I've been seeing late-night oat dishes on blogs and since I had an early morning workout planned the next day, I thought I would give it a try. I stocked up on some Trader Joe's supplies that day and picked up some cinnamon grahams and mini peanut butter cups...which became my inspiration!!!
1. Combine dry oats, water and salt and cook over medium heat until water is absorbed
2. Crush graham crackers
3. Top hot oats with crushed grahams and mini PB cups
These oat were ridiculous! The peanut butter cups melted into the gooey, yummy swirl and it was just an amazing desert...very filling with the oats. Also, this late night desert was great fuel for my early morning workout. I usually have half a bar or a piece of toast in the am, but I didn't need any food...just drank a little coffee and was good to go. This may become routine.
Do you eat before an early morning workout? Do you find it better to eat that morning or the night before? What is your favorite fuel for a workout?
