In place of the garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and paprika switch the below spices and herbs. Follow the instructions on the recipe card the same.

Mexican Carrot Fries

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika

Italian Carrot Fries

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp rosemary (chopped)
  • 1/2 tsp thyme (chopped)

Or you can toss it the carrot strips with this Italian blend and roast them.

Sweet Cinnamon Carrot Fries

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • *Coconut oil

*Instead of olive oil with this one, try mixing it together with melted coconut oil.

Everything But The Bagel Carrot Fries

This variation may be the easiest.

Toss the seasoned and oiled carrots with the Everything But The Bagel seasoning and bake.

This one seasoning has a ton of flavor!

How many calories are in this recipe?

I am always asked about the nutritional information in all of my recipes.

Every recipe has caloric and macronutrient information at the bottom of the recipe card.

This recipe serves two (meaning half of the recipe is one serving). It’s roughly 1 1/2 carrots (dependant on the size of the carrots).

One serving is around 172 calories, 11g carbohydrate, 1g protein, and 14 grams fat.

However, that’s not entirely accurate.

As I mentioned above, not all carrots are the same size. So that will adjust the calorie accuracy. Also, not every bit of oil will be on the carrots. Again, that alters the calorie count.

With that being said, it’s pretty darn close and nothing out there is really TRULY accurate.

How to Make Roasted Carrot Strips

In all honesty, the difference between carrot strips and carrot fries is how you cut them. These photos are more like carrot “strips” but I still call them fries. You can do wedges, fries, etc. It’s totally up to you.

These roasted carrot strips are a fabulous side dish for kids of all ages. They’re best served straight out of the oven, as they do get soft over time, but you can prep them ahead for meal prep if you would like.
