Ingredients

  • 16 Small Carrots, peels and slice 1/2 inch thick (1 3/4 lb or about 6 cups)
  • 2 tsps Coriander seeds
  • 2 Tsps Cumin Seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil melted
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Garlic diced
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Cilantro to garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • Heat a small pan to medium/high heat (do not spray with cooking spray or oil) and toasted the coriander and cumin seeds, stiring constantly, until lightly golden and aromatic, only about 1 minute (they burn quickly!)
  • Crush the toasted seeds and set aside. *
  • In a large bowl combine the carrot, melted coconut oil and garlic. Stir in the crushed seeds and mix well until the carrots are evenly covered.
  • Pour the carrots onto a large baking pan so that they are in one layer and have space between each stick. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake until golden brown and crispy, about 30-40 minutes, stirring every 15-20 minutes.
  • Garnish with cilantro and devour!

Notes

* I find it the easiest to use the bottom corner of a glass cup to crush the spices.
