These healthy sweet potato fries are made in the air fryer. This way you get the crispy taste you love from a fry, without the calories or fat!
I’ve been eating a lot of mashed sweet potatoes during my current attempt to get ready for an NPC bodybuilding show in June. I only have 2 months to go, and I still have a LOT of improvements to make!
A few days ago I decided to try to make some healthy sweet potato fries in our Air Fryer instead of my repetitive baked sweet potato. I bought a Cuisinart Toaster Oven with Air Fryer at Costco last year. We mostly use it as a toaster, but once in a while I will roast some veggies, or bake a potato. I hardly ever use the air fryer function.
However, earlier this week, I peeled and sliced 100 grams of sweet potato (equivalent to one medium sized potato). I added the sliced up sweet potato to the air fryer basket. Then, to keep the side dish on the healthy side, I sprayed the sweet potato fry slices with some olive oil cooking spray. Finally, I sprinkled it all over with salt.
I baked the healthy sweet potato fries in the air fryer, set at 400 degrees for 6-7 minutes. I flipped some of the fries and baked for 4-5 more minutes.
And the results were AMAZING!! I couldn’t believe I had the tastiest sweet potatoes in under 10 minutes. Normally, I’d wait a full hour for my daily mashed sweet potato. I’ve made my sweet potatoes into fries every single day this week, and I’m hooked!
While I don’t think a recipe is necessary for this, if you wanted to print the healthy sweet potato fries, here you go!
