Honey Roasted Carrots are quickly becoming my favorite side dish!

I always seem to have a bag of carrots in my fridge, thinking my family will eat them, but no one ever does and I end up getting rid of them.

I served these Easy Honey Roasted Carrots with ourRanch Chickena few nights ago and my entire family devoured them.

These Honey Roasted Carrots are the perfect way to use up those baby carrots and are a delicious side dish to practically any meal.

How Long Do I Roast Carrots?

The time it takes to roast carrots depends on the temperature you are using. We recommend roasting carrots at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes to make them crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

I love roasting carrots in the oven because they come out perfectly tender and I can usually throw them in the oven while I’m preparing the rest of our meal.

These Honey Roasted Carrots are the perfect side dish for:

  • Chicken
  • Ham
  • Pork
  • Seafood

How to make Honey Roasted Carrots:

I love recipes that only require a few ingredients and a few minutes of work.

To make these Easy Honey Roasted Carrots, you need a one pound bag of cut and peeled baby carrots, three tablespoons of honey, three tablespoons of olive oil and parsley for garnish.

You can also season your Honey Roasted Carrots with salt and pepper if you want a little more flavor.

Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees F.

While the oven is heating up, place the baby carrots in a gallon-sized sealable bag and pour olive oil on top. Seal the bag and shake until the carrots are completely coated in olive oil.

Pour carrots onto a baking sheet. For easy clean up, cover the pan in foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Drizzle honey on top of the carrots and season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Bake carrots for 25-30 minutes, or until they are tender. An easy way to check if carrots are done is by poking a fork into them. You want the carrots to be soft enough for a fork to easily pierce them.

Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired, and serve hot.

  12. MaryLynn P says:

    Thank you so much for all your great recipes. They're all really good and most of them are pretty simple, I like that.

  13. Sarah A. says:

    Wonderful recipe! Made some modifications because I wanted to try the recipe asap and don't want to go to the store, haha. I used whole carrots (4 very large ones and sliced them), and substituted honey for agave syrup. Baked 35mins @400. YUMMM!!!!

  14. Kim B says:

    Tried these last night with a family of picky eaters that snal their noses at anything healthy...these were a big hit! Thanks

  15. Down South Mama says:

    These look great but i feel that i should mention that avoiding baby carrots whenever possible is best. Manufacturers run them through a bleach bath to achieve their smooth appearance. Just a thought. Carrots with skin are much healthier anyway!

  16. Abbey B says:

    Hello! These carrots sound so yummy! If I wanted to cook these in the crock pot instead of in the oven, how long would you suggest they cook for?

  17. Cyd says:

    The high temp on a crock pot is about 300 degrees (depending on the brand of the crock pot). According to our recipe these cook in the oven at 400. We have only made them in the oven so we aren't sure what the length of cooking time would be. You will need to cook a little longer to make up for the temp difference.

  18. HEather says:

    How soft are these carrots? I need soft carrots because I have had major dental work. TIA

  19. Cyd says:

    They are fork tender, but if you need them softer from your dental work, just cook a little bit longer. Best of luck with your mouth healing!
