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!!
