Crock Pot Cinnamon Brown Sugar Carrots is an easy side dish for any day, even for your holiday meal!

Crock Pot Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots are sweet & delicious.

And, the best part is, they are made in a slow cooker. So, all the prep work is done hours ahead of time. And, if you are serving this for a big holiday meal, it frees up your oven and stove top.

To make this recipe, pour a 2 pound bag of baby carrots into a slow cooker.  Add 2 tablespoons of melted butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Stir to coat the carrots in the butter and oil. Then, add 2 tablespoons of water to the crock pot. Give the crock pot a little shake to make sure that the water is completely covering the bottom.  Put a lit on it. And, cook this on high for 3-4 hours until the carrots are tender.

Once the carrots have cooked, add ½ cup packed brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, and ½ teaspoon of salt.

Give it a good stir to coat the carrots and let the sugar start to dissolve. And, the carrots are done!

I used a smaller 2 quart crock pot for this because for my big holiday meal, I’m using my large 6 quart crock pot for another side dish that I’ll be posting next week. But, if all you have is a large slow cooker, that will work too.

Ingredients
 

  • 2 pounds baby carrots
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Add the carrots, melted butter, and olive oil to a 2-4 quart slow cooker. Stir to coat the carrots. Add the water to the slow cooker.
  • Cover the slow cooker. Cook on high for 3-4 hours, until tender*.
  • Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt to the slow cooker. Stir until well combined.

Notes

*Try to wait at least 3 hours before removing the lid to check on them. The more you open a crock pot, the more steam and heat you let escape, and the longer it takes to cook.

    Wonderful! Love the glaze. This was the best meatloaf I’ve every had! I really didn’t measure per se,, I just added what I though I would like, (Extra Worcestershire Sauce, and I added A1) I didn’t have Red wine Vinegar, so I substituted Red Balsamic Vinegar and I love a white onion but not in my meatloaf. However I used dried onion and that was just fine. Overall, just Excellent! Never heard of adding Milk in Meatloaf before and not sure what that does for the recipe but just last week I made corn on the cob and read a recipe to boil them in Milk, butter and water and that was amazing! So must be something about adding Milk in your recipe. But Im sure if you follow the recipe as indicated, it will be just as amazing!)

  2. I make a similar version of these in the oven, I never thought to put them in the crockpot!
    They are delicious and I’m totally taking them as a side dish for thanksgiving dinner!

  3. I wanted to try this recipe for Thanksgiving. I’m a little concerned because all five comments were made in a seven hour period and none claim to have actually tried it…

    What a great idea for using carrot sticks! It looks so easy and delicious, and the added cinnamon seems so good I just have to try it!

    I don’t know why my eyes jumped to the brown sugar and I thought oh, how delicious with carrots. Then I saw it was slow cooker. Winner!

  6. 5 stars
    I’ve never paired carrots with cinnamon before, but now that I think of it, it’s brilliant! I’m going to try this next time I cook carrots! Thanks for the idea!

  7. I think my niece and nephews would love this for a little snack or on the side. They love anything sweet and most vegetables.
