Honey Roasted Carrots (Gluten-Free)

Gluten-Free Honey Roasted Carrots, caramelized to perfection, seasoned with salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of fresh thyme. 

This recipe is the perfect side to compliment any celebration, holiday, or event. The honey glazed carrots pair perfectly with most proteins including lamb, prime rib, ham, roasted chicken, and turkey. We often make this recipe for weekday dinners because it’s so easy, and it’s made with wholesome ingredients you can feel good about serving your family. Even your pickiest eaters in the house will be asking for a second helping.


Honey Roasted Carrots Ingredients

This recipe is very simple, using only a handful of fresh wholesome ingredients.

  • Carrots: You can use any type of carrots, but for this recipe, I love using rainbow carrots.
  • Butter or Butter Flavored Alternative: Vegan Butter, Regular Unsalted Butter, or Butter Flavored Coconut Oil works well in this recipe.
  • Oil: I love using garlic-infused olive oil. If you can’t find this, you can always add 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to the recipe.
  • Honey: For sweetness and helps carmelize the carrots. You can replace the honey with maple syrup for a vegan option.
  • Salt: Brings out the sweetness and helps balance the flavors.
  • Pepper: For flavor.
  • Thyme: For flavor and garnish.

How To Make Honey Roasted Carrots

These carrots are absolutely delicious, simple, and ready to make in under an hour!

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and set it aside.
  2. Peel and diagonally chop the carrots into 1″-2″ in length. For larger carrot pieces, slice the carrot in half. Place the carrots in a large bowl.
  3. In a small glass container add the butter, honey, and olive oil. Microwave for 15 seconds, then pour the sauce directly over the carrots. Add the salt, pepper, and thyme. Mix all of the ingredients until the carrots are fully coated, then pour the carrots on the baking sheet, spreading them out evenly.
  4. Roast for 40 minutes, tossing halfway through.
  5.  Garnish with fresh thyme. Serve.

Tips For the BEST Honey Roasted Carrots

  1. For Reheating: You can reheat in the microwave until the carrots are warmed through.
  2. Don’t Forget to Flip The Carrots: Flipping the carrots half-way through the cooking time will help ensure each side bakes evenly.
  3. You Can Use Any Type of Carrot: Rainbow carrots are quite the statement piece but feel free to use orange or baby carrots in this recipe.
  4. Garlic Infused Olive Oil: This is a great low-fodmap option and provides such a great flavor to any meal.
