Honey Roasted Carrots

Recently during a trip to one of my favorite restaurants, I had an amazing and simple carrot dish that was just delicious.  After a few attempts at home to try to recreate it and eliminate the butter and olive oil that I am sure was part of the original dish, I came up with my own, that lives true to the original and is a great way to use carrots in a new way.  I also imagine that this is a dish both children and parents would love and can be easily adapted with other spices.  Next time I think I may add cumin or curry spices for an Indian twist.

    Just discovered your site! This recipe looks great, but when do you add the olive oil?

    So I misread the recipe and put them in at 475.. but they still came out great! I only cooked them for 20 minutes, though.
