Oven Roasted Maple Glazed Carrots Recipe with Fresh Thyme

Fall is the perfect time for root vegetables flavored with natural sweeteners and this maple glazed carrots recipe is so incredibly simple! I grew up in New England and developed a love of maple syrup at a very early age. Since my northern family knows how much I love this delicious sweetener, they sent me a TON for Christmas! YAY! Not only did I make this delicious maple glazed carrots recipe but I have enough maple syrup to use every day for the next 6 months. Probably more! If you love maple as much as I do, check out my recipe for maple walnut truffles. Not as healthy as carrots but pretty darn delicious!

How to Make Maple Glazed Roasted Carrots

I chose to use organic baby carrots for this recipe, mainly because I am lazy and hate peeling carrots. You can save some money by purchasing whole carrots, then peeling and chopping into large chunks. Try to make them all around the same size. If you don’t, they won’t all be done at the same time.

I added fresh thyme to these after they came out of the oven. Learn how to grow fresh thyme and you will come to love how nice it is to have on hand!

As for the sweetener for this maple glazed carrots recipe, you could use honey if you wanted, although I think the flavor of maple really shines here. Make sure to put down foil or a silicone baking mat over your cookie sheet. Otherwise you will have a bit of a mess on your hands!

This oven roasted maple glazed carrots recipe is the perfect side dish! Slightly sweet, it is a healthy carrot recipe everyone will enjoy!

And I mentioned this in the recipe but make sure you pat dry the carrots on a clean towel! The maple syrup sticks better that way! And if you are looking for more creative ways to use up some maple syrup, try my maple overnight oatmeal  for breakfast.
