Since Instant Pot Potatoes, Instant Pot Quinoa, and Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes are some of the most popular recipes on my blog, I figured it was time for another easy side dish made in the pressure cooker.

Today we’re making these Maple Instant Pot Carrots. They’re ridiculously easy and perfect for the holidays (is it too soon to be planning my holiday menus??).

Because I wanted these to be as simple as possible, I simple used a big bag of baby carrots so that there was ZERO prep required for this recipe. However, you could also chop up regular carrots and cook those instead.

How to make Maple Instant Pot Carrots:

The ingredients for these carrots is simple:

  • baby carrots
  • maple syrup
  • cinnamon
  • butter (use vegan butter if desired)
  • water

All of the ingredients get mixed together in your instant pot or pressure cooker and set to cook on manual high pressure for 4 minutes. Once it’s done cooking, quick release the pressure and ENJOY! SUPER easy, right?

I’m a very big fan of these carrots :D
