Slow Cooker Sweet Cinnamon Carrots
Since I’m out of a kitchen for the foreseeable future, I couldn’t help but get a little bit excited about my newfound need for my slow cooker. When I was brainstorming recipe ideas, I thought a set it and forget it Thanksgiving side was a MUST.
Sometimes getting the turkey on the table, the pie perfectly baked, and the cranberry sauce sorted is a lot to think about. So, I thought it would be fun to make a side dish that you can prep ahead of time and forget about until that sweet cinnamon scent fills your house with the perfect Thanksgiving spirit.
Ok, while I’m on the topic, I need to tell you that this dish makes the most deliciously autumn smell. I was LOVING it as it got stronger and stronger each hour as it cooked. It was delightful and I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy it too.
If you want some more ideas for thanksgiving sides, you have GOT to try these sweet balsamic brussels, this homemade cranberry sauce, these smashed sweet potatoes with garlic beet aioli, or this healthier green bean casserole. I’m all about the sides (ok and dessert) on Thanksgiving and to be honest, you can go wrong with any of the above!
So, without further adieu, let’s jump into this recipe and make some Slow Cooker Sweet Cinnamon Carrots!!
Place the baby carrots, water, butter, agave nectar, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and salt in your slow cooker. Use a spoon to mix everything together to coat it. Place the lid on and set it on low for 6 hours.
After the time is up, give it another mix and enjoy!!
