Carrots or Candy?!

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   Click here for a printable version

1 16 oz bag organic baby carrots

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 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 cookie sheet with foil and spray with olive oil nonstick spray. 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 desired tenderness. The juice will thicken and caramelize like candy. Your house will smell like Cinnabon!!
