Equipment

  • Air Fryer

Ingredients

  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Coarse sea salt for sprinkling
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Place the cut sweet potatoes in a bowl and drizzle olive oil over the potatoes. Toss to coat.
  • Add the fries to the air fryer basket of an air fryer in a single layer (cook in batches, if needed). Air fry at 375 degrees for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • After cooking, you have two options: sweet fries or savory fries.
    For sweet fries, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow dish and mix well. Roll the fries in the mixture just after cooking, until completely coated.
    For savory fries, sprinkle sea salt over the fries after cooking.

Notes

 
  • Depending on how thick you cut your fries, you may have to cook for additional time. For extra thick-cut fries, air fry at 375 degrees for 20 minutes total, flipping halfway through.
  • Be sure not to overcrowd the basket in order to achieve optimal results! Work in batches, if needed.
  • If you go the savory fry route, consider sprucing them up with a sprinkling of garlic powder or salt and pepper before cooking.
  • To avoid the fries sticking to the basket, lightly coat with cooking spray first.
  • If you want to turn up the notch on the crispy level, increase temp to 400 degrees but be sure to decrease the cook time by a few minutes if you go this route.
