Why don't you love this easy air fryer sweet potato fries recipe
Homemade sweet potato fries are delicious! They are crispy outside and tender on the inside. They are also much healthier than making standard french fries, since sweet potatoes have more fiber and more vitamin A and C. Kids love them and the high heat of the air fryer means you can cook these sweet potato fries without the mess, hassle and calories of deep frying. Deep fried sweet potato fries absorb a lot of oil, so they will have a lot more fat and calories than these air fryer ones. So you sacrifice a small amount of taste for a huge health benefit.

How to make sweet potato fries in the air fryer
Making Sweet Potato Fries are as easy as 1-2-3 !!!
- Slice the Sweet Potato Fries – I use my Starfrit Fry Cutter to slice my sweet potatoes into fries. Some people peel their sweet potatoes, but I don't because of the health benefits from the potato skin.
- Season the sweet potato slices – Mix olive oil, garlic powder, smoked peppers, salt and pepper together in a small jar, then pour over sweet potatoes in a mixing bowl and gently toss to season the fries.
- Spread seasoned sweet potato in an air fryer tray and fry in the air fryer – Preheat your air fryer to 400F, spread 1/2 the sliced sweet potatoes into a single layer, then cook in the air fryer at 400F for 8 mins, flippping the fries halfway through the cooking time.

Can I make sweet potato fries ahead of time?
Sweet potato fries are a perfect snack to prepare well ahead of time. I like to cut up my potatoes and store them in a ziploc bag in the fridge until I need them. This way, all I have to do is season, air fry, and serve the fries an out-of-the-box after school snack or a fun late night treat in no time!
