Coconut Oil Roasted Carrot Fries | deliciousobsessions.com Follow Me on Pinterest

These coconut oil roasted carrot fries are probably one of our favorite sides. They taste great with just about anything — burgers, hot dogs, chicken, steak, fish, etc. The recipe developed as an accident, as I was roasting some carrots for dinner one night and kind of forgot about them. When I remembered, they were pretty browned (OK, some were black), but even the burnt ones were tasty. The carrots have natural sugars in them that, coupled with the coconut oil, caramelize in the heat, creating a soft, chewy, and slightly crispy fry. The flavor is fabulous — all you need is a little salt and pepper, though I’m sure other seasonings would be delicious too!

  3. Ooo, these sound yummy! I’ll have to try them! My mom used to make pot roast in her dutch oven, and the carrots were often caramelized. So good!

  4. Since carrot has been bred and SOOO far from its original form (like apples), it is hardly paleo as many people feel. Also it has TONS of sugar due to this breeding, making it have to be used with CAUTION by diabetics.

    A MUCH healthier alternative (and more true paleolithic, is parsnips. If you don’t like parsnips you can also substitute long strips of eggplant as fries.

    I used you recipe with that substitution and it was great. I also like to use a mix of smoked paprika and a small amount of red pepper to give it a little bite. Or, my favorite is using regular paprika and chipotle for a southwestern taste.

    • Hi Steve – I love parsnips and make chips with thin slices of the parsnips and coconut oil. Delish!
