Instructions for Baked Carrot Fries in Oven or Air Fryer

  1. If cooking these carrot fries in the oven, preheat oven to 350º.  
  2. Peel carrots with a vegetable peeler (be careful!), slice into fry-sized pieces that are also a fry shape. 
  3. Place carrots in a large mixing bowl and toss with olive oil and salt to taste.
  4. Spread carrot sticks in a single layer on a large baking sheet or sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Place baking sheet in hot oven. If cooking in the air fryer, try to place carrots as spread out, in an even layer, as much as possible. 
  5. If cooking in the air fryer, check every 2-3 minutes and remove when tips are brown.
  6. If in oven, bake for 12-25 minutes at 350 degrees until carrots are browned.
  7. Transfer to a large bowl and season with more salt if needed.

Recipe Tips

  • Our oven-baked carrot fries are easily modified and can serve as a starting point if you’re feeling adventurous. Try sprinkling garlic powder, onion powder, or a light dusting of parmesan cheese the next time you make our carrot fries. If you do add additional toppings, please note that your healthy eating plan points would need to be recalculated. 
  • These carrot fries are best eaten fresh. You can store them in an airtight container and reheat later, however they aren’t quite as crunchy. 
  • Try to cut your fries all the same size and shape. If you have smaller pieces, you might end up with super-burnt crunchy pieces of carrots. 
  • This would be a great addition to many of your side dishes at the table for a special occasion.
