I made this like it said except I added a tablespoon of maple syrup. I made my own baby carrots because all I had was regular carrots. Thanks for the idea for our supper tonight.

Loved these carrots. I added some honey for a little sweetness and glaze and they turned out delicious. I will be making these on a regular basis!

I added a tad bit of sugar which made them a little sweeter and so delicious! My lil guy loved them and that guarantees a repeat performance here soon!

Just enough spice to make the carrots interesting. I used regular carrots waffle cut. I'll be making these again. - So easy and so good.
