If you are getting tired of making the same old steamed broccoli, asparagus, or side salads for dinner, you’ve got to try these Baked Carrot French Fries because they are always winners with the kids.

I mean, who doesn’t love french fries, right?

The thing is, that frozen fries aren’t always the healthiest option, especially with the added ingredients, and most people don’t slice potatoes into fries.

So if you don’t want to rely on frozen fries or want to eliminate some of those added ingredients, this recipe is just the thing to serve for dinner tonight.

The carrot fries can easily be prepped ahead of time and kept in the fridge for a few days until you are ready to bake and serve them.

Easy and convenient recipes like this one that adds nutrition are exactly what you’ll find inside our MOMables Meal Plans.

Other options are sweet potatoes or zucchini, but I love using carrots for this recipe since they are an excellent source of beta-carotene, vitamin A, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants, not to mention how great they taste!

    What a smart idea!!! Love this. Reminds me of sweet potato fries which I ADORE.

  5. Me says:

    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!

  7. Nikki says:

    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 :)

  8. These sound really good! I’m gonna try them on the kiddos! I’m looking for a good zucchini chips recipe too if you have one. =D
