Carrot Fries with Vegan Ranch Dipping Sauce

Pre-Cooked Carrot Fries

Carrot fries are something that I keep seeing  on my Pinterest and I am intrigued. I love to make Sweet Potato Fries so I can imagine that carrot fries would be awesome as well! I really liked the thought of these because my son is a huge carrot fan but doesn’t always finish carrots because they are so hard. Since he is only two I can imagine that it is difficult for his tiny teeth to eat raw carrots but he loves them, so I can’t deny him them. When I saw this recipe for carrot fries I felt the need to try them, not only as a soft alternative for my son but because they looked DELICIOUS!

When I made these fries I honestly only used about 2 whole carrots. I didn’t want to make too many but now I wish I would have made more! These were so good and were eaten up so quickly because I had my niece and nephew over as well as my little guy. I made the recipe my own and made some vegan ranch dipping sauce…to complete the healthy snack idea! Check it out below:

Yummy Carrot Fries!

These fries came out so nicely! I would recommend baking on 350 degrees and keeping a close eye on them because mine did come out a little “burnt” on the edges, but I liked the flavor! I couldn’t even tell you that the ranch was a vegan ranch it tasted awesome and I highly recommend serving cold, the colder the better in my opinion. The cooking spray kept the carrot from sticking the baking sheet and also gave a delicious hint of sweet taste to this veggie! If you are looking for a healthy snack for your kids or yourself please try this! Have you ever tried making carrot fries?
