These hot honey carrots are easy, but they’re so much better than regular roasted carrots.

Ingredients

  1. Carrots
  2. Hot honey
  3. Extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil
  4. Feta cheese
  5. Chives & parsley
  6. Salt & pepper

Where to find hot honey

You should be able to find hot honey at your local grocery store near the regular honey (sometimes it will be called spicy honey). Or, you can order it online(I love Mike’s Hot Honey). If you don’t have any, you can also use regular honey and add red pepper flakes instead.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Add sliced carrots to a mixing bowl and add hot honey, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly.

Recipe variations and FAQ

Can I use regular honey?

If you’re not a fan of spicy flavors you can definitely use regular honey or maple syrup. If you want it to be a little less spicy, you can also use regular honey and then add as much red pepper flakes, chili powder or hot sauce to meet the heat level you prefer!

Can I use baby carrots?

I prefer to use whole carrots and then slice them, but you can use any type of carrots you want. If you use baby carrots, you may need to adjust your cooking time to be slightly longer. Check for doneness by making sure the carrots are easily pierced with a fork.

What should I serve these carrots with?

These carrots are a great option for an easy recipe on a weeknight to serve as your veggie, or a fun change up during holiday meals! Here are some ideas of what to serve them with:
