Maple Roasted Carrots

Maple Roasted Carrots

What could taste better and SMELL better than cinnamon and maple?? How about cinnamon, maple and a hint of sweet paprika smothered all over carrots!

These are so easy to prepare and taste delicious...just like candy. To be honest though, I don't know which I  like better...the taste or the smell. They smell that good. I had to double check I was in my house and not at Cinnabon in the mall!

Recipe: Serves 4  Prep time: 5 mins  Cook time: 25 mins   Print recipe

  • 1 16 oz bag organic baby carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup grade A pure maple syrup

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix all the ingredients, except the carrots, in a bowl with a spoon. Now toss the carrots in the bowl and coat them evenly. Line a sheetpan with parchment paper. Pour the carrot mixture and all the juice onto the sheet and spread out evenly. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon if desired. Bake 20-25 minutes or until completely fork tender. The juice will thicken and caramelize like candy. Your house will smell like Cinnabon!!
