Maple Seed Butter Glazed Carrots

Roasted Carrots
  • About 16 small carrots, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or other neutral oil)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Maple Glaze
  • 1/2 cup Maple Sunflower Seed Butter 
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Warm water to thin


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and coat a sheet pan with cooking spray.

In a medium sized bowl, toss together peeled carrots, olive oil, salt and pepper until evenly coated. Arrange in a single layer on the prepared sheet pan. Roast for 25-30 minutes, until carrots are tender. Start checking for doneness after 15-20 minutes if your carrots are on the smaller side.

While carrots are roasting, prepare the Maple Glaze. In a medium bowl, add all ingredients except for water and whisk to combine. Slowly stream in warm water while whisking until maple glaze reaches a drizzling consistency. Set aside.

To serve, arrange carrots on a serving dish with stems on one side. Drizzle maple glaze lightly over carrots and garnish with fresh herbs like parsley or chives, if desired. Serve remaining glaze on the side.

Savory roasted carrots in a skillet, drizzled with glaze. A delicious dish to get kids to eat their vegetables.
