Carrots are packed with goodness – antioxidants, fibre, vitamins and minerals. We learned as children that carrots help with eyesight (the bunny in glasses image stays with me until this day).

I sprinkled the raw carrot sticks with some almond and coconut flour and a pinch of Moroccan spice.  You can combine any combination of spices if you like – turmeric, cumin, coriander – these are all great contenders. Carrot Chips might just become my new favourite thing!
