Simple Honey-Coconut Glazed Carrots

Greetings wellness lovers!

I hope you had an excellent weekend!

Jon and I celebrated the Easter holiday by spending the day relaxing at home with family over, enjoying delicious spring-time cuisine, and enjoying the perfect weather!

Since I know most busy, health-minded individuals are always looking for easy ways to sneak more veggies into their diets without a lot of time + ingredients, I wanted to share an easy recipe with you from this past weekend!

Simple Honey-Coconut Glazed Carrots

Serves: about 4


  • 1 lb. organic, whole carrots
  • 2 tablespoons organic unrefined coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons local honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme

Wash and peel carrots, and slice into pieces of similar sizes. Fill a large pot with water, and bring to a boil. Add carrots to pot, boil until slightly tender... usually about 13-15 minutes. Drain carrots in colander. Add coconut oil and honey to pot, then add carrots back in. Cook, stirring occasionally for several minutes, mainly to just coat all of the carrots evenly with the coconut oil and honey. Add thyme. Serve and enjoy immediately.

*Holistic health bonus point: As you likely already know... enjoying local honey can be useful in remedying seasonal allergies!

Have an excellent rest of the day!

  2. I tried this only using whole baby carrots and I added the coconut oil and honey to the water and let it boil down. This is a wonderfully tasty healthy way to eat carrots. Thank you for sharing with us.
