My kids go absolutely crazy for these carrots! Jade said “Mommy, can you make these always??” and even little David wolfed them down. I served them for the first time on pizza night and they ate the entire plate of carrots before finishing their pizza. I was shocked! Major veggie win!

How to Make Maple Roasted Carrots
These Maple Roasted Carrots are seasoned mildly and the golden brown sear makes them absolutely addictive. I like to slice them thin and cook them for a long period of time so they get nice and tender. This also lets the maple flavor soak all the way through. They are like candy! I could absolutely see these on a holiday table too. Really, you can’t go wrong with this carrot recipe!
Health Benefits of Carrots
You may have grown up hearing about how good carrots are for your eyesight (and that’s true!) but they do so much more. Carrots are low in calories and offer dietary fiber. They’re high in beta-carotene, which your body turns into vitamin A! This is good for eye health but also your immune system as well as healthy skin. Go carrots!
