Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries
These Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries are a perfect blend of sweet and savory, and they’re baked to perfection, so you can enjoy that wonderful crunch without the guilt of deep frying!
Prep Time: 35 min | Cook Time: 40 min | Total Time: 75 min | Servings: 4
- 1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
- Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Then, cut them into uniform matchstick-sized fries, about 1/4-inch wide.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, arrowroot powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, sea salt, and ground black pepper. Mix well to create a seasoned oil mixture.
- Add the sweet potato fries to the bowl with the seasoned oil mixture. Toss the fries until they are evenly coated with the mixture.
- Arrange the coated sweet potato fries in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, making sure they are not overcrowded. This allows them to crisp up nicely in the oven.
- Bake the fries in the preheated oven for approximately 20-25 min, flipping them halfway through the cooking time. They should be golden brown and crispy on the outside when done, and tender on the inside.
- Once baked to your desired crispiness, remove the sweet potato fries from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
- Enjoy your homemade crispy baked sweet potato fries as a delicious and healthier alternative to traditional fries. You can dip them in your favorite sauce or enjoy them on their own!
