Move over sweet potato fries because these homemade baked carrot fries are divine!  Baking instead of frying makes these fries a deliciously healthy alternative that can be enjoyed alongside a juicy burger, steak, or just as a yummy snack.

I LOVE sweet potato fries so I felt a little bad cheating on them with these carrot fries.  The truth is I planned on making my Spinach Mozzarella Turkey Burgers and having a side of yummy baked sweet potato fries but to my disappointment I had none.  Then the light bulb went off to substitute the sweet potatoes with carrots hence these:

The maple chipotle dipping sauce for these fries is AMAZING.  It’s a salty and sweet combination with a little kick ;).

Start by preheating oven to 425 degrees.  I like to lay my fries on a cooling rack placed over a baking sheet.  The air circulates better, making the carrots evenly crispy.

Cut carrots in half horizontally, then cut each half again vertically.

Cut thicker halves in fourths and narrow halves in half so you have “fry size” pieces.

Place in large bowl and toss with olive oil and spices.

Lay evenly on cooling rack, making sure none overlap for even cooking.

While the carrot fries bake, make the dipping sauce:  combine all ingredients in small bowl and mix until combined.

That’s all there is too it!  Do a dance, do some crunches, fold the laundry while you wait for the carrot fries to be done..that’s the hardest part of this whole recipe ;).
