For Air Fried Carrot Sticks

Using our air fryer carrot fries recipe as a guide, 16-20 minutes at 350ºF (shaking halfway through) in a 6.5 quart air fryer does the trick. This recipe makes a slightly larger batch, so you may need to extend the cook time or cook in batches for extra crispy carrot sticks.

I love these for when I want to eat something crispy and full of flavor to satiate that fry eating feeling! Super quick and easy!

I no longer live near HEB So I Prep the carrots ahead of time so that you have them ready to go whenever that craving hits!

I do not have a store that carries pre-cut carrot sticks. This recipe also works by cutting baby carrots in half, although I do prefer the taste of cutting a whole carrot.

Loved these. I also roasted cauliflower using the same blend of spices - also very tasty! Next time I think I will try Brussels sprouts!
