It’s that time of the year when we start to look for healthy alternatives for our diets. Carrot Fries might be just what you need! They are baked, crispy, flavorful and much lower in calories than a traditional french fry.
Served with a citrus yogurt dipping sauce, Carrot Fries are a great appetizer or snack. They are super easy to make with just a few ingredients and very little effort. If you want to eat them without the dip, they will still taste great.
