#MerriamWebsterSaidSo

This simple, no bake fudge requires zero culinary proficiency, a few basic ingredients, and this time I guarantee you have them all on hand.
The beauty of this recipe is that you can sub out nearly any item for something else and it will still work:

– No Quest protein? Use your favorite [whey/casein blend] brand.
– No FiberYum syrup? Use honey or agave.
– No Buff Bake White Chocolate peanut butter? Use literally ANY other peanut butter.
– No cashew milk? Use almond or coconut milk.
– No banana? …….Okay no sub for this one, go to the store. The trip is worth it.

That said: I have not tested any other variation, so when I say it still “works”, I mean I know it will still make a fudge. Whether or not your spin on it tastes like unicorns and sunshine and the best day of your entire life like mine did is an entirely different matter.

Side note: I would cut the fudge into squares while still inside the cold pan, otherwise they will start to melt into the cutting board as you slice away at them. Not that I know this firsthand or anything.

Birthday Cake Protein Waffles

Everything in moderation. Except for sprinkles. You can never have too many sprinkles.

I used my base waffle recipe for this stack, added vanilla extract for extra flavor, and then, of course, sprinkles, because you cannoy have birthday-themed anything without them.

The YouFreshNaturals Birthday Cake Coco-Nut Butter was the perfect “glaze” on the top layer. This was a post-training meal for me so I also added half of a Lenny & Larry’s cookie for extra carbs and calories to refuel.

Speaking of carbs and calories, if you’re reducing either of those you can easily omit the nut butter and cookie and this stack becomes 215 calories and only 11g of carbs! However, you really won’t get the full celebration-in-your-mouth effect without all that extra birthday fun on top. Trust me on this one.

If you don’t follow me on Snapchat yet, you should (“alphakilo7″…go ahead…I’ll wait…), because I always snap the food on there first before I dress it up and try to use proper grammar and add it to this blog.

Note: for a more “traditional” waffle consistency, I recommend using a whole egg instead of just the whites. I am sensitive to the yolks, which is why I usually use just the whites.
