Baked Sweet Potato Fries

My kids love sweet potato fries 🍠🍟and baking instead of frying isn’t only healthier, but it also brings out the delicious sweet flavor! I’ve experimented with a few different cooking temps/times for the perfect fries.  Let’s just say I’ve certainly had my share of burnt fries 🙈but I’ve finally perfected these baked fries and they are super easy!! Less than 30 min from start to finish!

Sweet potatoes are abundant in vitamin A and are a good source of Vitamin C, potassium, dietary fiber and B vitamins! Plus they rank much lower on the glycemic index compared to white potatoes. Let’s make some fries! 🍠

Ingredients 

1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/4″ wide sticks, about 2″ long  2 teaspoons olive oil

Sprinkle of sea salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Toss sweet potatoes with the oil and  arrange in a single layer, being sure not to overcrowd -bake 10 minutes, flip and bake an additional 10-12 minutes or until tender and golden brown. Cool for a few minutes before serving.
