Note: It is always preferential to use grass-fed meat and dairy products, as well as Himalayan salt.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix the ingredients from the carrots through the fresh thyme thoroughly in a bowl (save the melted butter, sugar-free maple syrup, and parsley for later). Spread the carrots evenly onto a sprayed/greased sheet pan.
  2. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Rotate the pan and roast for another 5 to 10 minutes until golden brown and cooked to desired tenderness.
  3. While carrots are roasting, combine the melted butter, sugar-free maple syrup, and chopped parsley in a bowl. Toss the carrots with the sauce just before serving.
