Baked or made in the air fryer, these healthy sweet potato fries are made with a fraction of the oil that would be used if deep frying. They are so much lighter, with the perfect balance of spicy, smoky and sweet. A keeper of a sweet potato recipe!

Whether you make them in the oven, or in the air fryer, the results are fantastic. If you prefer milder fries, swap the chipotle for chili powder.

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Total: 30 mins
Yield: 1 serving
Serving Size: 6 oz

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet potato, (about 6 ounces) peeled
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chile powder
  • olive oil spray

Instructions

Oven Method:

  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • In a medium bowl, toss sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt, garlic powder and chipotle chile powder.
  • Spread potatoes on a baking sheet. Avoid crowding so potatoes get crisp. Bake 15 minutes. Turn and bake an additional 10-15 minutes. Ovens may vary so keep an eye on them and be sure to cut all the potatoes the same size to ensure even cooking.

Air Fryer Method:

  • Preheat air fryer to 400°F.
  • Slice the potato into even 1/4 inch thick fries. Toss with oil, salt, garlic powder, and chipotle chile powder.
  • Transfer to the air fryer basket, spritz the top with olive oil then cook 400F in a single layer without overcrowding the basket until golden brown and crisp on the outside, about 7 to 8 minutes, turning half way.

  1. These are SO GOOD! We made some to take to my brother's house for dinner and by the time we got to his house…they were all gone! Oops! I make them all the time; my teenager and husband and I *cannot* get enough. Thanks, Gina!!

  2. Hi, would it be possible to make a batch of these and put them in the freezer? (student with little time)

  3. So disappointed in this recipe. Thought they would be good but unless you have commercial french fry cutter to get all the cuts exactly the same size you will just burn some while the rest of the fries are mush. The pictures obviously were not bakes but came out of a deep fryer. Baking will not provide that type of consistency in cooking. We enjoy several recipes off this site but a word to the wise keep on moving this one is a flop.

  4. My husband usually likes his food fried and smothered in something thick and yucky, but I've been trying to help him find healthy food he likes. It's tough! I subscribe to "Door to Door Organics" and they delivered four sweet potatoes today. I made these along with your chicken nuggets and some steamed carrots and he told me this was maybe the best meal I've ever made! THANK YOU! Your recipes are SO easy to follow and super yummy. We all eat better (and eat yummier food) when I cook from your website. And THANK YOU for providing vegetarian recipes. In a "mixed" household, it's nice to make food that is good for everyone.

  5. I love these! I wish there was a way to prevent the smaller or thinner cuts from blackening, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I can also never get mine to turn out as crispy as I'd like, but that's hardly this recipe's fault. The flavor was great!

  6. I didn't crowd them, and I ended up burning them trying to make them crispy. I don't understand.

  7. Can't wait to give these a try tonight. Making them as the side for your Buffalo Turkey Burgers. I have made those burgers numerous times and the DH just can't get enough. 🙂

  8. All for the internet advance loan organizations demand which you possess a bank account since they wire the
    funds straight into your banking account if they lend
    you the income pay day loans uk payday loans online are very convenient to use
    since they involve no paperwork, and also the application process take hardly 5 minutes to complete.

  9. TIP – use a misto filled with olive oil and spray lightly. you can get away with using 1/4th the amount of oil! – Ann

    I am making these now! They look so good! 🙂 In the picture, you have some white dip with them. Is that a recipe too?

  11. I just made a batch. I burned them to all heck. My DS ate the semi-okay ones loaded with ranch.
    My hubs couldn't get past the black burnt taste LOL.
    Maybe I'll try again another day.

  12. Made these last night and loved them! Mine didn't get crispy…I think I probably overcrowded them. However, the taste was still great and my husband loved them! Another great recipe!

  13. Oh I really heart sweet potatoes baked. I can say I always have this dish for every week. Too bad my family doesn't much like it. I don't even care when my fries come out lumpy and soggy. They still taste best. I usually sprinkle it with chili flakes. Love it much <3

  14. Love these for Thanksgiving and year-round. I add a sprinkle of cinnamon and orange zest. I bake on parchment paper in a convection oven and they crisp up nicely. It's important to not crowd the baking sheet.

  15. So yammy! Just made them and noticed same thing as Kate that even though they looked black, they still tasted great! Thank you for this great recipe, I'll be doing these now on, instead of normal fries, I never even liked them!

  16. Just made these last night and it was a bit funny. I left them in just a little longer than I should have before flipping and was shocked to see they were turning BLACK on the side touching the pan! I flipped them over and gave them a few more minutes anyway so they wouldn't have a raw side, but was pretty convinced I had ruined them. When I took them out of the oven I realized it hadn't smelled like it was burning so I gave one a try. Turns out they hadn't burned, they had caramelized! The bit of caramelization combined with the spicy chipotle flavor was AMAZING! I will absolutely be making these again!
