Recipe Notes:

Carrots are easily one of our favorite vegetables. They do tend to be naturally higher in sugar, so it’s a good idea to try to minimize the amount of sugar that you add to them when you can, especially if you are eating a low carb diet. With excellent sweeteners/sugar replacement options, it’s easy to cut down on some extra carbs, calories and sugar without sacrificing great taste. These No Sugar Added Maple Glazed Carrots are something everyone will really enjoy. They are ready in under 40 minutes, and it takes just a few ingredients and simple steps to bring everything together. We know that some people might not want to eat carrots on a keto diet, but that’s okay too. To each their own! We are affiliates for ChocZero, and we think they make the best syrup ever! Use it in place of regular maple syrup for a lovely flavor. To get 10% off your order at choczero.com, use our code ‘AFullLiving’ at checkout.

Here’s What You Need For No Sugar Added Maple Glazed Carrots:​


Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Peel your carrots and cut them into small rounds, or any shape you desire.

Heat up your bacon fat and 2 tbsp of the sugar free syrup. Reserve some of the syrup for topping at the end. Add your carrots to a bowl, then add the melted bacon fat and sugar free syrup. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper.  Mix well.

Add your carrots to a parchment lined baking sheet, and try to get them in a single layer so they cook and crisp up more evenly. 

Remove from the oven and let cool for a moment. Transfer to a serving bowl.

Add the remaining sugar free syrup to taste. Adjust salt and pepper if you need to.
