Protein Cottage Cheese Waffles

This week I tried a few new things, one is this amazing protein waffle and the other is the No Sugar Maple Syrup.  Hope you like it as much as I do.  I cannot take credit for this recipe so I’d like to give a shout out to Michael Kory, the creator of this recipe.  Here’s the link to his YouTube channel and you can see him make the waffles.  He makes 4 waffles with his waffle maker but I make 8 with mine, I guess mine are thinner.  Either way they’re delicious!

Just enough batter in each center or else it will spill out of the sides.
