Maple Glazed Roasted Carrots – This is the BEST roasted carrots recipe! Sweet-glazed carrots with gorgeous caramelized edges make the perfect side dish. (Gluten-Free, Paleo & Vegan-Friendly) 


  • 2 lbs. carrots, washed, peeled, and ends cut off
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, vegan butter, or ghee (clarified butter)
  • 3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Optional: minced fresh parsley, for garnish

Optional, for garnish: 1/2 Tbsp fresh herbs (parsley or dill) or 1/2 tsp. freeze-dried parsley.


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Wash and peel your carrots.
  3. Cut each carrot diagonally into 3-4 pieces. (If your carrot is very thick, cut your pieces in half lengthwise to promote even cooking)
  4. In a large saute pan, gently melt butter, vegan butter or ghee.
  5. Add maple syrup and stir to combine.
  6. Add garlic, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper and stir about 1 minute.
  7. Add carrots and carefully stir to coat with the glaze mixture.
  8. Pour carrots and glaze mixture out onto a baking sheet/sheet pan in a single layer and distribute as evenly as you can to allow air flow and better roasting.
  9. Roast 20 minutes. Stir carrots and roast another 20 minutes or until the carrots are tender.
  10. Turn heat up to the BROIL setting and broil carrots 2-5 minutes to give them a browned finish. (Watch carefully so they don’t scorch!)
  11. If desired, season with additional salt and pepper, and sprinkle with fresh herbs.
