Servings : 6
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 pound carrots, rinsed, peeled, and halved lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze
  • chopped fresh chives, or parsley, for garnish


  • Preheat Air Fryer to 400˚F.
  • Lightly grease air fryer basket with cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together the olive oil, melted butter, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  • Add the carrots to the honey mixture and toss to coat.
  • Working in batches, add carrots to the air fryer basket in one single layer; cook for about 10 minutes, flipping, or shaking the carrots halfway through cooking.
  • Transfer carrots to a serving plate.
  • Drizzle with balsamic glaze.
  • Garnish with chives.
  • Serve.



  • Carrots: I used long carrots for this recipe, but you can use any type of carrot that you like or have on hand; baby carrots, large carrots, purple carrots, etc... For a prettier presentation and faster cooking, I suggest to cut the carrots in half, longwise. 
  • Prepping the carrots: If your carrots are longer, you may find it easier to toss them, with the honey butter, in a rectangular dish, like a 9x13 baking dish. OR, use a pastry brush to brush the carrots with the mixture instead of tossing them in a bowl.
  • Cooking the carrots: I have a single basket air fryer and that is why I cook the carrots in batches. IF your air fryer can fit all the carrots, and in one single layer, then it's fine to cook them all at once.
  • Balsamic Glaze: Make sure you are using a balsamic glaze and NOT balsamic vinegar.
