Candy Carrots

candy carrotsI love a savory meal, but every once in a while, I like a little sweetness with it. Enter the candy carrots recipe.

This is a simple way to add color and flavor to your meals. And if you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, you can eat them like candy for a snack!

This kid really likes candy carrots.

For us, though, there’s no chance of leftovers. Samantha loves candy carrots, so she’ll devour any remaining pieces thinking they are “treats”.

Candy Carrots Recipe

  • Wash and trim carrots, then chop into small pieces.
  • Put your carrot pieces in a ziplock bag with 1-2 T. olive or coconut oil, close bag, and shake to coat carrots.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and pre-heat oven to 400.
  • Spread carrots — not touching — out onto your pan and sprinkle with Himalayan salt and ground pepper.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes on 400 F, stirring carrots once, mid-way through baking.

I purposefully let mine get a little brown around the edges because it makes them a bit more crunchy and flavorful.
