Glazed carrots are always a crowd favorite!!! They are super easy to make, nourishing and so dang delicious. I love these carrots especially on holidays to add color and deliciousness to the plate. But feel free to make them any day of the week as a side dish your whole family will love. Concerned about the sugar ? Use olive oil and salt. You will still have delicious carrots with out the added sweetness.
1 kg / 2 lb carrots , peeled and cut diagonally
1/8 cup coconut sugar , loosely packed
1/8 cup raw honey
2 garlic cloves , minced
2 tbsp butter, melted (or olive oil)
1 tbsp olive oil
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
Parsley , for garnish (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400F
- Cut carrot on the diagonal into 1.75” lengths. Halve thicker end so they are all roughly the same width.

Carrots are super budget friendly. If you are unable to get Raw Honey, do not use honey. Regular honey is not the same. Use only coconut sugar ( you can buy in bulk from bulk barn, the exact amount you need). You can also use brown sugar if that is all you have.
