Carrots are full of beneficial vitamins and minerals, but you have to eat them to get the benefits. These fries are how I got my husband to like carrots and eat more vegetables! When I first met him he really didn’t eat vegetables very much at all. This is such a fun way to cook carrots and is a perfect way to introduce picky eaters to them.

Why I love this recipe:

  • This recipe has very few ingredients and is easy to make. It just takes a bit of time to chop the carrots and mix, but the rest is just waiting for the carrot fries to bake!
  • This is a fun snack for kids or adults alike who want a healthier spin on handy finger foods like fries.
  • Carrot fries are a perfect healthy dish to serve to guests for dinner or for any occasion.

Baked Carrot Fries Recipe Tips:

  • I find that these work best if you peel the carrots first. You don’t have to peel the carrots, but the texture may not be the same.
  • I use the tapioca flour in this recipe to make the fries a little more crispy and firm. You can substitute it with arrowroot flour. You can also omit the flour, but the carrots will come out less crispy and more tender.
  • If you are following the autoimmune protocol, be sure to omit the black pepper to make it AIP compliant.
  • When baking the carrot fries make sure the carrots are evenly spread on the baking sheet and not stacked on top of each other– this allows them to cook evenly.
  • These carrot fries have the best firm texture right out of the oven. They will last for a couple days in the fridge, but they will wilt and lose their crispness– but the flavor will still be good.
  • Make sure to watch the video right below the recipe to see exactly how these carrot fries are made!

Instructions

  • Turn the oven to 450°. Start by washing the carrots and peeling them. Cut the carrots into even sticks that are roughly 4 inches long and about 1/2 inch thick.

  • Put the cut carrots into a bowl and sprinkle the tapioca flour and all the spices over it. Mix until the spice and flour mixture coats all the carrot sticks.

  • Drizzle the olive oil over the carrots and stir to evenly coat.

  • Place the carrots on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure the carrots are evenly spread and not stacked on top of each other.

  • Put the carrots in the oven and bake for about 20-30 minutes, checking halfway through to move the carrots around or flip them on the sheet to get even cooking.

  • Once you can pierce the carrots easily with a fork and there is a slight browning/crisping on the edges, they are done. Remove them from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
