Sweet Potato Fries

Usually we associate sweet potatoes with family holiday gatherings, but sweet potatoes are actually a really healthy meal and super easy to prepare on a daily basis! This recipe is for two different kinds of sweet potato fries depending on whether you like a sweet or savory kind. You can get really creative with seasonings and add extra flavors, but these are the two methods I use.


  1. 2 Sweet Potatoes
  2. 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil (I’ve used coconut oil as well)

Sweet Recipe:

  1. 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  2. 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  3. For a topping after they’re done baking, try drizzling your fries with peanut butter and sprinkling with granola!

Savory Recipe:

  1. 2 teaspoons chili powder
  2. 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  3. sprinkle of salt 
  4. You could also try bagel seasoning for your savory fries!


  1. Preheat your oven to 425*F
  2. Wash and slice your sweet potatoes into fries. I don’t peel my potatoes, but you can if you don’t like the skin.
  3. Toss the fries in a bowl with your choice of olive oil or coconut oil until they are coated. Add desired seasonings and toss again.
  4. Scatter your fries on a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until soft.
