This was one of those spur the moment recipes that ended up turning out awesome. It seems that sometimes the less I plan a recipe, the better they turn out. Since I was busy riding and doing school work for most of the day, I made these waffles for dinner. You can never go wrong with waffles for dinner. Or any breakfast food for dinner for that matter.
The waffles themselves are pretty simple. I used MusclePharm vanilla combat protein powder in them to give a boost of protein and delicious vanilla flavor. Then I added about half a cup of fresh blueberries because they just wouldn’t be blueberry waffles without blueberries.
One of my favorite things to do lately with frozen fruit is to heat it up in a pan with some maple syrup. I let it simmer and sort of make a sauce. This time using blueberries heated with the syrup, it basically made a delicious blueberry syrup.
For the cheesecake sauce, I just used some sugar free cheesecake pudding mix and mixed it with water until it was a sauce. I love putting it on pancakes and waffles, or pretty much anything. It makes it literally taste like you are eating cheesecake!
