Superbowl Sunday & Blueberry Protein Waffles

Hi there :)  Happy Superbowl Sunday!!!  I'm just dropping by to give you a quick little post about breakfast, before I head out to brunch with the ladies at my fave brunch restaurant ever.  So, as you know, I started making protein waffles lately and I promised there would be lots of combos on the blog.  Well, let me just say I am in serious love with protein waffles for breakfast.  Not only are they easy, but they also require minimal cleanup.  Besides, who wouldn't love a gigantic waffle for one?  Especially one that's less than 300 calories, provides 8 grams of fiber, 20 grams of protein and one serving of fruit :)

This is my favorite so far - I want this for every meal, pretty much every day.  I topped mine with a combo of 1 tbsp agave mixed with 1 tsp coconut oil.  

Enjoy your Superbowl Sunday!  I'm making chocolate chip cookie cupcakes to take to a party :)  YUM!

2. Set aside, about 10-15 minutes, until batter thickens slightly - add blueberries.
