  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly brush with oil.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together warm melted butter alternative, oil, honey, fermented honey, and thyme leaves.
  4. Arrange the carrot sticks on the baking sheet in an even layer. Pour the glaze over the carrots as evenly as you can.
