  • Light grill over medium-high heat and let it come up to temperature.
  • Wash and peel your carrots (peeling is optional), but can make for a prettier presentation.
  • Mix together coconut oil, cinnamon, chipotle paste, chili powder, and salt. Rub mixture evenly all over carrots (using your hands is the easiest).
  • Place on grill over indirect heat and grill for 20-25 minutes, flipping and rotating occasionally (about every 7-8 minutes). Time will depend on how thick your carrots are and some might be done before others. Carrots should be slightly soft when you pinch them, but have a slight firmness towards the inside when done. Enjoy!
