Ingredients

  • 1 lb baby carrots
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes optional
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat your air fryer to 360 degrees F for 5 minutes.
  • Coat the carrots with 2 tbsp of melted butter and season with salt and pepper.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray and lay the carrots in a single layer. Cook for 8 minutes. 
  • While the carrots cook, prepare the honey butter garlic sauce. Combine the remaining melted butter, honey, red pepper flakes, and garlic. Mix well.

Notes

  • Make sure to season the carrots generously with salt and pepper!
  • Want the carrots extra caramelized? Cook them a few minutes longer.
