A healthy and kid friendly snack that gluten-free and made from veggies.
Ingredients
  • 3 carrots
  • 1½ Tbl oil, such as avocado or coconut
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Optional: ½ tsp granulated garlic or ¼ tsp paprika for a little spice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the carrots into ribbons. Inevitably you won't be able to peel the entire carrot, so save the remaining for another use (like soup).
  3. Toss the ribbons in a bowl with oil and salt until they are well coated.
  4. Add garlic or paprika if using and toss.
  5. Lay the ribbons in a single layer on several baking pans.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip the carrots over, bake for 5 minutes, then keep checking as you bake every 2-3 minutes. The ribbons go from looking almost ready to burnt pretty quickly so they need a little babysitting! They are fine when slightly browned & crispy.
  7. Remove from oven & allow to cool.
