Air Fryer Hot Honey Glazed Carrots

Yield: 4 servings 1x

These Air Fryer Hot Honey Glazed Carrots are sticky and sweet with a perfect mild heat! They take just 10 minutes to cook for a quick, irresistible weeknight roasted veggie side dish recipe featuring carrots, hot sauce, and honey. 



  • 4 medium-large carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch thick rounds
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce (I used Cholula)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes


  1. Mix ingredients: In a medium mixing bowl, combine the carrots, honey, avocado oil, hot sauce, garlic powder, salt and red chili pepper flakes. Stir until the carrots are completely coated in the hot honey sauce mixture.
  2. Air fry: Spoon the coated carrots into the air fryer basket, leaving most of the leftover sauce in the bowl, and then save the bowl and sauce for later. Use the spoon or tongs to move the carrots into as much of a single layer as possible. Air fry the carrots at 380F for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through. The carrots are done cooking when they are fork-tender, appear slightly wrinkled and the edges are beginning to char.
  3. Toss in sauce: Before serving, add the carrots back into the original mixing bowl with the remaining sauce and toss to coat with more hot honey mixture. Serve from this bowl or pour into a serving dish. 
  4. Serve & store: Serve immediately as a side with dinner, as a sweet snack, or on a salad. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
