  • Air Fryer


  • 2 lbs Baby Carrots
  • ¼ c Butter
  • ½ c Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • Fresh Thyme optional


  • In a medium sized bowl, melt butter.
  • Once the butter has fully melted add in the brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Making to sure mix well to incorporate all of the ingredients.
  • Add the brown sugar mixture to a large bowl with the carrots and coat every carrot.
  • Grease your air fryer basket with spray olive oil.
  • Add in the carrots and air fry at 330 degress for 8-11 minutes, until carrots are tender.
  • If you are using a smaller air fryer, you may have to do these in two batches. You don’t want to overcrowd the air fryer basket.
  • Plate the cinnamon sugar carrots and sprinkle with fresh thyme if you are using.



NOTE: I like to add 2 more tablespoons of brown sugar and about a half a tsp of ground cinnamon at the end, once the carrots are tender for additional flavor. This isn’t needed, just the only way I can get my children to eat them!
