These carrots are a delicious side dish for your meals. They are roasted in the oven and glazed with an orange and sugar free maple syrup coating. Deliciously savory with a touch of sweet will be a favorite way to eat vegetables!


  • 1 pound baby carrots *
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar free syrup ( I used Lakanto)*


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Scrub carrots and peel if needed. Cut any very thick carrots in half lengthwise. 
  2. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  3. Mix together the oil, ginger and salt and pepper.  Stir carrots in the mixture to coat completely.
  4. Bake in oven for 15 minutes.  Remove, stir carrots and return to oven and bake another 5-10 minutes or until lightly golden and can be pierced with a fork.  If you would like the carrots a bit more caramelized, put baking pan under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, watching so that they don't burn.
  5. Stir the syrup and orange juice and brush over carrots.  Serve while warm.


*If you don't have baby carrots, you can cut regular carrots in half or thirds, depending on their size. Use the fork method to test for doneness. (Press into a carrot with a fork, if the fork goes through the carrot and starts to break off, they are done).

*If you don't have syrup, use some sugar free brown sugar.  It will taste different but still delicious.

*Leftover carrots?  Heat them, add a little butter and milk and make mashed carrots. Or grate some carrots and add to a salad, burgers, meatloaf or make fritters.  Of course you could puree' the carrots and make soup.
