Servings 6 servings
- 2 pounds carrots washed and peeled *see notes
- 6 tablespoons butter cut into small pieces
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- Salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil
Trim and slice the carrots diagonally into 1 1/2-inch thick slices.
In a large pan or skillet over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Stir in the maple syrup and brown sugar and cook until the sugar has melted, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the carrots and toss to combine. Season with salt to taste.
Transfer the carrots to the prepared baking sheet arranging them in one layer for even cooking.
