Our Orange-Glazed Carrots are sure to cause a commotion at your table. We used sugar-free marmalade and a hint of warming spices like cinnamon and cloves to make these baby carrots melt-in-your mouth delicious, and diabetes-friendly, to boot!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 2 tablespoons light soft tub margarine
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free orange marmalade
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 2 teaspoons Splenda brown sugar blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

What to Do

  1. Place the carrots in a medium saucepan. Add enough water to cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-high, cover, and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until desired tenderness; drain well and set aside.
     
  2. In the saucepan, melt the margarine over medium heat. Add the remaining ingredients; mix well.
     
  3. Return the carrots to the saucepan and toss until mixed well and heated through. Serve immediately.

I made these for my family Christmas meal. They are very, very good. This is a recipe I will be keeping.

To the test kitchen. I double checked the recipe and did not see any honey mentioned. Only the Splenda brown sugar blend. How much honey would you suggest?

Hi there! This recipe doesn't call for honey. The carrots are glazed with a marmalade and brown sugar mixture. We do not recommend using honey instead of marmalade; however, you can substitute honey in place of the brown sugar. Enjoy!

These sound delicious. Instead of using Splenda, I will be using STEVIA as a sweetener. It is all natural, and so much better, and safer, for you.

Is there a Low Carb version of these carrotss?

The honey is what adds carbs to recipe. That, along with the carrots themselves, which have a good amount of natural sugar. You could substitute some brown sugar Splenda for the honey, which would add some sweetness.
