There is never anything mundane about roasted root veggies.
Particularly when they're perfectly seasoned.
Carrots are one of my favourite vegetables to roast. They get all tender and caramelized and sticky sweet.
Everyone knows there's nothing worse that soft mushy carrots. These are quick, simple, and sure to be a hit with any picky eater.
This recipe is simple + so easy to whip up, requiring just 6 ingredients. It all comes together so quickly. Just 25 minutes from start to finish. That's it!
All you need is olive oil, honey, fresh dill, and good old salt + pepper. That's it. From there you can let these guys roast until perfection.
These roasted carrots are my new favourite!
- Savory + sweet
- Loaded with vitamin A and fibre
- Insanely satisfying
- And Quick
Make this recipe as a snack, a side dish for lunch or dinner, or alongside your favourite main dish. You really can't go wrong.

It feels like a lifetime ago that I last made a post, but I'm back today. And this time I brought fudge. Without all the excess refined sugar, corn syrup, and butter of course.
This was my first time making healthy fudge, and now that I have a base recipe figured out it's definitely something I'm going to be experimenting more with. This one was a hit!
This protein fudge is the perfect satisfying treat or snack with it's creamy, soft + sweet characteristics. It literally melts in your mouth.
It starts with a base of honey, natural peanut butter, and a hit of pure vanilla extract...Just a few of my favourite things. The smell of this combination will have you salivating in anticipation. As hard as it may be, try not to stick your whole face in the bowl. Trust me it wont fit ;)
Just make sure you use smooth peanut butter and not crunchy. You want the end result to be nice and thick and smooth.
Next we add in the protein powders. I used a combination of North Coast Naturals iso whey protein and brown rice protein, but feel free to use your favourite brand. The reason I used a combination of whey and brown rice protein powders is for texture. You can also substitute pea protein for the brown rice if you prefer.
You wouldn't want to use pea or brown rice protein as a base in your shake because of it's different smell and taste, but they both do excellent when blended with other ingredients; like in this fudge recipe. Just think of them as a protein powder to replace regular flour. They add a wonderful bready + doughy texture to sweet and savory recipes.
Easy as pie! Or fudge in this case.
The only thing that wasn't easy was taking these photos. You see you need to keep these in the fridge or freezer for good reason. It was a rather hot and humid day when I shot the photos and the fudge really is soft and doughy. Take a look at the photo below and you can see how the corners started to melt on me, not literally *melt*, but they did start to go south once I'd had them out of the fridge for a while.
It didn't make it any less delicious though!
