Ⓥanana Cream Waffles w/ Bluberries

Fruit is not in my food preparation routines, usually. However, these Vegan Belgian waffles have been making my mouth water at the local Sprouts, my home away from home (away from work:), every time they are spotted. A savory waffle sandwich will not be ruled out, in the future.
