Quinoa Waffles with Blueberry Drizzle

Blueberry season is right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate  by using these bad boys to top off a killer whole grain, gluten-free waffle.  We're mixing all the power houses together to make the dough - rolled oats, quinoa, and gluten-free flour.  And then packing in as much antioxidant power as we can with our homemade blueberry syrup.  BAM!  Full of texture, fiber, protein and delectable almond flavor, this waffle is going to make you wanna say, "gimme more."  Tons of staying power, which is what I'm all about to get my morning rocking.
