These tasty waffles are crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside and taste like carrot cake. These waffles can be served with warm cinnamon cream cheese sauce.

2cupsfinely grated zucchini
2cupsfinely grated carrots
1/4tspnutmegfresh grated if possible
Cinnamon Cream Cheese Sauce:
1/3cupheavy whipping cream
Grate zucchini and carrots on a fine grater and add it to the mixing bowl. Do no squeeze or drain.
Add eggs, buttermilk, oil, vanilla extract and sugar and whisk together until evenly incorporated.
Whisk in flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.
Let the batter stand for about 10 minutes, while your waffle maker is heating up.
I recommend cooking waffles of a slightly lower temperature so they can cook a little longer (probably medium-high but it will depend of you waffle maker). That way they will be crispy on the outside and veggies will have extra time to cook.
For sauce: Add all ingredients into a small sauce pot over medium heat. Let it start heating through then whisk slowly but constantly until the mixture is smooth and creamy. This will only take about 5 minutes. (I recommend using a silicone covered whisk so your pot doesn't get scratched.)
