Healthy Baked Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

My cuts. I kept the skin on of course.

Toss time!

The finished product was YUM!!!

Ingredients:

*1-2 large sweet potatoes, I kept the skin on for extra nutritional goodness

*Canola or vegetable oil (you can omit this if you want)

*1/2 tsp. cumin

*1 Tbsp. chili powder

*1/2 tsp. coriander

*1/2 tsp. paprika

*cayenne pepper, to taste (optional)

*salt and pepper

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.

2. Mix all of the spices together in a large bowl.

3. Now place the oil in another large bowl and throw the cut potato slices in. Once coated, throw your mixed spice medley onto the fries and toss around to make sure each one is nice and coated.

4. Place fries on your foil which should be sprayed lightly with some kind of cooking spray.

5. Put in the oven and bake until the fries are crispy, 20-30 minutes.

6. Remove fries from oven and enjoy!

  1. About how much oil should i use??? It does not say ..

  2. will the calories increase if instead of baking them i fry it in canola oil? HAHA.

  3. Just made them and they are delicous!!!
    but is it normal that they are still soft inside?
    I increased the time but after about 50 minutes I took them out.
    it was not really crisply but tasty :)
