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!

    Do you think these could be froze after cooking, for future use? I was hoping to make up a big batch for my toddler, and take out one serving at a time. Thanks!

      Hi Sarah! Thanks for reaching out with your question. I’ve never tried freezing these, but I think it should work. I would suggest baking them them freezing them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Once they are frozen you can put them into a sealed bag or container. When you want to reheat them, cook them on a preheated baking sheet and heat until warm. I have also microwaved extra fries from the frig – they taste good but are no longer crispy. Let me know how they turn out if you get a chance. My 3 year old niece loves this recipe and I’d love to pass on any insights you gain to her parents 🙂
