I never used to like carrots, but now snack on them frequently during the day. My kids only seem to like them if they can dip the carrots into something or if it has some sort of flavoring on them so I came up with these. I prefer to use fresh carrots and only steam them 3/4 of the way so that they still have a little crunch to them. I also used sugar free maple syrup in this recipe, just to give it the maple flavor without the added sugar from regular maple syrup. These were so simple and quick to make and the kids loved them!
