Healthy Baked Carrot Fries

Healthy Baked Carrot Fries - 2Teaspoons

 

After enjoying a delicious first round of the cowboy sliders I sat back and tried to figure out how to make the leftovers even more delicious.  I thought about it long and hard and couldn’t get it out of my head that the burgers would be perfect with french fries.

I realized that the only thing better than french fries, are sweet potato fries. But what’s better than sweet potato fries? Baked carrot fries! They are seriously amazing (and healthy!) Always a tasty win-win combo in my kitchen :-)

With these delicious baked carrot fries there is no need to sacrifice flavor for healthiness.  I even used our local Easy Pickin’s Orchard  dig-your-own carrots!  They taste just like sweet potato fries, but are healthy for a couple of fantastic reasons:

  •  They are baked and not fried!  But they taste fried! Guilt-free, and fried-free, fries that  taste like delicious sweet potato fries!  Hurray!

  • They are made with carrots instead of potatoes, drastically cutting the calories, while remaining full of fiber and vitamins…can anyone say super night vision!  Got to love those orange veggies full of beta-carotene!

    Ok, I think we were meant to be blogging BFFs. I have carrot fries on my blog too.. as well as how to make pumpkin puree. I guess great minds think alike :)

    • I totally agree! I love carrot fries and your baked sweet potato chips look fantastic! I can’t wait to give them (and a bunch of your other recipes) a try! :-)

  5. I loved these! I tossed some dried rosemary on them for a little flavor. They came out great, other than the one fry that I had sliced too small…he just ended up a little crispier :)

    Your blog is so cute! I am definitely a new follower!

    • Thank you so much! I’m so happy to hear you’re enjoying my blog. I love sharing fun recipes and picking up yummy tips along the way. I’ll definitely try tossing the carrots with some dried rosemary! It sounds delicious :-)
