My son has gotten a bit pickier with his food the last few weeks (as is to be expected from most 15 month olds) but he is absolutely obsessed with these honey mustard carrots. I mean, seriously obsessed. He would eat an entire pan of them.
That said, I would too. They are that good.
It’s not even like this is some kind of revolutionary recipe. It’s just 4 common ingredients – carrots, oil, honey, and spicy mustard. But when you mix them all together and roast them until the carrots are tender and those sugars start to caramelize, it’s like vegetable crack.
These make a perfect side dish to almost any meal. Breaking out some burgers? Perfect! Roasting some pork? Work as a side for those too! BBQ chicken? These will pair nicely with that as well.
For the athletes in the crowd, I love these as a side (or if you’re like me, a snack!) because it’s a nice source of healthy carbs that are full of some fiber and vitamins. There is a little added sugar, but it’s relatively minimal.
And this side dish works for almost all dietary limitations. It’s dairy free, gluten free, and – as long as you buy a safe mustard – it would be free of the top 8 allergens (as always, check labels though to make sure). If you’re vegan, you can sub out agave nectar for the honey to create an animal-free version.[Tweet “These honey mustard carrots are a tasty side dish for kids & adults alike!”]

Honey mustard has to be one of my favorite flavor combos….I love the idea of using it with carrots. I’ll definitely be trying this out!
Thanks April! It really is quite delicious with anything, but especially carrots 🙂
Easy recipe and kid approved? I’m all over this one. I’m cooking meatloaf so this will be a perfect side!
Yes, perfect side dish for meatloaf!

Can you reheat these the next day and still have that crunchy taste?
Hi Sandra! They’ll still taste great reheated but generally they won’t have that bit of crispness on the outside.
Tried it for a potluck, everybody loved it, especially a mom with kids. I need to make gluten free and dairy free for myself and no one missed those ingredients. It went great with what the others brought, pulled pork and buns, corn bread – another great gluten and dairy free recipe I found online, and mac and cheese. I added a bit of water in the middle of cooking. I might add a bit more mustard for my own taste next time and a pinch of salt.
So glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing 🙂
