I usually don't eat carrots because they aren't so 'keto compatible,' but I recently came into 3 bags of baby carrots. My pug, Dexter, has lots of allergies to food and has a condition where his body doesn't break down certain things. (This is making you really want to try this recipe, isn't it?) His vet said a long time ago that things like carrots, green beans and marshmallows were all safe to feed him as treats. It's so easy for us to keep a mini bag of baby carrots in the fridge for him for treat time. He'll actually lead you to the fridge and stare at them if you ask him where his carrots are. It's become a running joke among our friends. He really, really loves carrots.
So, moving on! Our friends were visiting and very kindly brought Dexter two bags, I'd just bought a bag to serve a veggie platter, and Dex already had a pretty full open bag. So what do you do when life gives you carrots? Make Easy Ranch Carrots!
