Baked Carrot French Fries

Are you in need of a super quick, easy, healthy and yummy side dish?

Baked Carrot Fries - a healthy snack or side dish kids will LOVE via MOMables.comThis recipe for carrot french fries is perfect for that and more!

Many times it is hard enough to come up with dinner ideas, let alone sides! That’s why when I make a side dish the main thing I look for is something that is easy to prepare and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.

These carrot french fries also pack well in a school lunch. I had these for leftovers the next day and I actually preferred them cold.

If your child prefers their food warmed,  you can warm them in the morning before packing in a thermos.

To make these carrot french fries all you need is some carrots, olive oil, and kosher salt. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

Depending on how thick you want your “french fry” you can either just peel the carrots for a crispier fry, or cut them into strips for a thicker fry. I did the latter.

Toss your slices with some olive oil and kosher salt. Spread carrot slices, in a single layer, on a baking sheet. Cook at 450F for 10-12 minutes, or until desired crispiness is achieved.

These fries will give your kids a healthy dose of beta-carotenes, vitamin A, minerals,  fiber, and anti-oxidants. A much better alternative to the carrot french fry’s cousin, Mr. potato french fry, which is fried in oil and offers little to no nutritional value!

    Oh my goodness. These are great. They taste even better cold. If I had to rate the warm ones, it would be five out of 10 stars. If I had to rate the cold ones, it’ll be 10 out of 10 stars. I used coconut oil and it was fantastic. I am yet to try the olive oil. Thanks!

    I made these tonight. The family loved them, but thought they were sweet potato fries. I kept my secret until they had eaten them all up. They were so shocked that they were carrots! Even my 8 year old, who claims to NOT like cooked carrots, gobbled them up, and then was disappointed that she was “tricked.” Thanks for a great side dish recipe!

    I made these last night with dinner, they were delicious! My two year old son loved them as well and I’ve had trouble getting him to eat carrot! Thanks for the recipe :)
