Sweet and Spicy Carrot Fries

Sweet potato fries? Been there, done that. Carrot fries are just as sweet, cook more quickly in the oven, and are less calories. TRIPLE WIN!

You'll need:

  • 6 large carrots
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs paprika
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 2 tbs cracked sea salt
Serves 4, only 95 calories a serving

Peel the carrots and slice them into thin, and I mean thin, strips. Place on tin foil lined baking sheet. Toss in olive oil, evenly coating. Add the seasonings and toss again to make sure they cover all the carrots. Spread the carrot fries evenly on the sheet. Place in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. 

If you want them crispier, try placing them under the broiler on high for 1-2 minutes, keeping a close eye on them so you don't burn them.
