This simple recipe for Air Fryer Baby Carrots is perfect for an easy side dish on a busy night. Even kids love these tender and flavorful roasted baby carrots. 

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 1 pound bag baby carrots
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Open the bag of baby carrots and place them in a colander to drain any water from the bag. Then, use a clean towel to pat them dry.
  2. Place the carrots in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the olive oil, dried garlic, sea salt, and black pepper, and stir to combine.
  4. Pour the carrots into the basket of your air fryer. Set the temperature to 400°F for 20 minutes, stopping once to shake the basket during the cooking process.
  5. When the carrots are done cooking, they should be fork tender. Transfer the carrots to a serving bowl and serve warm.


  1. You can double this recipe depending on how large your air fryer basket is. The carrots can overlap each other while cooking; just be sure to shake the basket a few times during the cooking process to make sure they cook evenly.
  2. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat before serving.
  3. Some air fryers need to be preheated. Read your instruction manual to see if you need to preheat your model. 
  4. If you want to add more sweetness to your carrots, feel free to drizzle 1-2 teaspoons of maple syrup, brown sugar, or honey on them and toss before serving.
