Caramelized Banana Protein Waffle

Would you believe me that today was my first time ever having a caramelized banana? Well, it's true. And to be honest, I don't know what I've been doing for the last 30 years. A caramelized banana is probably one of the best things on this planet and I don't think I'm exaggerating.  

So today I made a vanilla protein waffle and I topped it with Cool Whey vanilla ice cream and a caramelized banana, and I drizzled it with my favorite maple walnut syrup from Walder Farms. Do yourself a favor and recreate this recipe. And don't forget to tag me!
