Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Slice up your sweet potato into finger-sized fries. They don’t have to be perfect, but try to keep the size fairly consistent.

Place the potato slices. Pro tip: when life presents you with the option, ALWAYS upgrade to the Sweet Potato Fries. Thanks to one little trick, these healthy baked sweet potato fries are magically crispy on the outside, without the need of a deep fryer.

You can pair them with just about any of your favorite main dishes, or do what I do: polish ‘em off straight off the pan!Mix olive oil and spices together in a small bowl. Slice sweet potatoes into desired size and put on large baking sheet (or two if you are making a lot).

Pour the oil/seasoning mixture over the fries and toss by hand until evenly coated. Bake for 25-30. Peel sweet potatoes, and cut them into fries on a cutting board. Dry fries with paper towels.

In a mixing bowl combine fries, one tablespoon of oil, and a pinch of Rotisserie Chicken Rub, and mix. Spray the Air Fryer Basket with oil and place the fries in it. Mix together 2 teaspoons each onion powder and garlic powder, 1 teaspoon each dried dill and kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cut 3 sweet potatoes. Preheat air fryer to 400°.

Combine all ingredients; toss to coat. Place on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes, stirring once.

Serve immediately. Test Kitchen tip. If you don’t have an air fryer. Position rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray. Place sweet potatoes and soybean oil in large bowl, toss lightly.

Sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika. Arrange potatoes. Step 1 Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Toss sweet potato wedges with oil, salt and pepper. Spread the wedges out on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until browned.

Sweet potato fries are slightly higher in calories and carbs but also more nutrient dense than French fries. The greatest nutrient difference is that French fries have no vitamin A, while sweet. “While most fries made from regular potatoes are deep fried in oil, sweet potato fries often can be found as a baked version,” says Rumsey.

  • People be deaf deaf. Music was fine. Maybe lower it at the parts where you’re instructing, but no need to remove it. Gives your video better flow/personality. Thank you for the recipe!

  • Great video, thanks ����
    See in the back left you also have a square shaped silver airfryer. Does the recipe work the same in that one?

  • Loved your video!
    Just a suggestion maybe the music can be softer? It’s a bit loud, and it’s hard to hear your voice sometimes….

  • I am now a minute in and pause to say. Why can’t the title prepare us for when the recipe starts. Some of us have no time to spare and you have to get all if this prelude. Then scroll comments ro see when the recipe starts. lol. I had time to comment����������������

  • But what was added at the end hate this recipe videos they add a bunch of shit at the end but do not tell you knowing its the garnish at the end why the video was clicked

  • Turned out great, followed it to a T. If you space them and flip them half way through they are crispier. Obviously not as crispy as deep fried ones but I found them to be really tasty.

  • I tried. They came so good but not that crispy. but taste is sooo good. Please let us know how to make them more crispy.Thank u

  • I’ve never soaked them for an hour before, but I’ve done everything else and it never works… so I hope that is the key.:( I really want to be able to make this.

  • for people who keep saying “why peel the skin” or “you should keep the skin” some of us can’t digest it. skins also collect alot amount of dirt even if you wash it. especially vegetables that grow in hotter regions, the skin is almost dry like onions so it’s uneatable. understand that.

  • Garlic seems odd here and what good will 1/2 tsp of brown sugar do? Is that for caramelization? Will leaving the skin on affect outcome?

  • WARNING! If you don’t space the fries in the tray far enough or exactly how it shows in the video they won’t turn crispy. Mine turned limp fries. lol

  • WARNING! If you don’t space the fries in the tray far enough or exactly how it shows in the video they won’t turn crispy. Mine turned limp fries. lol

  • hi i just found this channel tonight and I just want to say thanks for making such an AWESOME youtube channel. I’ve been dying for something new and this is amazingly well done

  • I’m going to give this a try. I usually fail when I try to make sweet potato fries….I just end up with soggy fries with burnt edges ��

  • Tried these today (with purple sweet potatoes and added oregano as well) as I was searching ways to feed my 18 month old sweet potatoes and not only did he love it but I relished it as well. Thank you for such a delicious recipe. Cheers!

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️������������������THIS IS THE BEST SWEET POTATO FRY I HAVE EVER HAD!!!!! I could eat 80 billion of these without getting full Thank you so much for makin sweet potato fries that does not have horrible ingredients added into them.

  • OoOoOo my goodness
    Doctor, Doctor
    SooOoOo Delicious!
    I just made these today. Thank you for sharing your flavorful recipe. My sisters and I will definitely be enjoying these later this evening with our meal. Bravo!!

  • I was literally looking for the best way to cook these, as I’ve never made them before. Everyone else was saying to use cornstarch, and while I don’t doubt they are great that way, I had NONE; and wasn’t about to buy any right now at least. Thank goodness I found the chicken recipe, and you mentioned the sweet potato fries!

  • I made mine with salt and pepper but next time will add garlic salt for more flavour. I did put mine on a baking rack but found they weren’t crispy (but not soggy either). I put them back in under the broiler for a minute and it made a little difference. The texture was good overall. Luv the video. Thanks for sharing!

  • Tried these delicious fries as part of our healthy dinner tonight! I didn’t have a wire rack so mine were a little soggy, but oh… so… tasty! I can’t wait to purchase a wire rack so we can do these again & try them crunchy!

  • Just happened upon you today looking for a roasted pumpkin seed recipe…and I’m floored.  You are such a natural at this, Dani, and I can’t wait to try the roasting part tomorrow (they’re drying today, as per your recommendation)…can’t wait to try some of your other recipes as well, starting with these sweet potato fries!  Glad I found you!!!  8^)

  • They laughed when I told them I was going to lose weight with “Shatter Weight Loss”, but then I showed them the results. Go and google “Shatter Weight Loss” to see their reaction.

  • Looks great need to get me a baking rack. Also wondering if this would travel well looking for ideas for lunch boxes. so wondering if this will reheat well in a microwave. Thoughts?

  • Great video I’ll be doing this! Only change I’ll make is to shake it all up in a leftover bread bag rather than stirring it together by hand. I always have these bags around and will be good way to use one. I’ve had the store-bought s-p fries, and even my son likes them.

  • @wylklks u’re right. you can make your workout sessions much more productive if your eating the right foods to avoid fat and belly. Listen One of my friend working in fitness field suggested me this 7 secret food items to kill our jelly belly. check it out here ->

  • Doesn’t baking sweet potatoes potentially raise glycemic load? Not to be overtly critical or contrary, just wondering why you stated it was OK to eat near daily when what I have read about cooking sweet potatoes states the opposite.

  • @iamgodgirl She means free of/limited preservatives and harsh fillers companies put in foods to preserve them or make them taste better. Soda is over 100% sweeter than an apple because of chemicals and excess sugar. Originally, we were never meant to even taste that kind of stuff. Make sense?

  • I think it’s because you didn’t cook them before putting them in the oven. The oil is so they don’t get burned in the oven and they don’t stick to the plate.

  • Love your videos Dani! I wish you made more like on a weekly timeline. I have to wait almost a month between them now. Keep them coming!

  • Wow your baked french fries look. Delicious. Going to make sweet potato friesmy favorite!! Great recipethanks for sharing. God bless you from grandma Katie in oregon

  • Funny what you said about dried paprika. In Holland we say paprika instead of bell pepper so that makes it kinda obvious already��

  • I always use some kind of oil, but I don’t have a decent oven right now, and they keep coming out soggy. I will try this. BTW, red potatoes sautéed and pan fried in coconut oil are delicious.

  • Good oil is good for you… Olive oil for non heated, avocado oil for cooking, mct oil for health shakes and coffee. How do you figure oil is bad for you???

  • Boil the fries first for around 10 minutes, or to the point that they’re just soft but not falling apart. You’ll get that deep-fried texture with zero oil.

  • Super dish.

    I have been eating it for 3 days and counting because I love potatoes.

    Absolutely delicious and ridiculously simple.

    I subscribed, please keep sharing such wonderful, amazing and surprisingly simple dishes.

  • Just discovered your channel, You’ve inspired me!!! Ur upbeat, positive and do ur homework. I’m a mom who’s always cooks healthy just finished the muffins, ��. bought a silicone mat and giving a try tonight with fries. Keep up the good work!

  • All I could think about when that cat was dancing over the food(not to mention all over the kitchen!) Was how it just got out of the litter box…stepping on its pee and poop…I lost my appetite, I will have to try these fries on another day lol thanks for the tips bro

  • just tried this recipe tonight, awesome. went light with the sea salt and pepper and put a bit of cinnamon on my son’s half and he was sold. thank you:) 

  • Lol. Avocado music. Lol. Yes it is like that. Its a gamble. Remember the “free range” avocado you got. Lol. I can believe you don’t turn them to cook the underside of the potatoes. Hmm interesting.

  • Fasting with a lot of prep for that meal I know is coming….this looks like it will be on the menu……..lost 44 pounds sine dec.27th. Yeaaaa

  • Hi Derek…made your fries the other night, but just watched a video on [Dr.Gregor’s site] and turns out baking ruins alot of the goodness, and surprise, surprise, boiling is the best way.

  • I use organic cold pressed olive oil..maybe brushed on cauliflower, maybe bread with dukha and vinegar. my dad was spanish and we love it. My health is great,blood works great..not for everyone..

  • Everyone, vegan or not, can learn so much from this homie! I’m not a vegan but in the pursuit of a better physique I’ve drastically reduced my consumption of meat and get the majority of my protein from plant-based sources because of this guy; the biggest obstacle for people getting fit, I find is nutrition. Learning to cook is the biggest unexpected benefit of getting in shape, making your own food from scratch allows you to keep eating much healthier variations of your favorite foods! I tell people even if they work out an hour a day, 7 days a week, that’s still only 7/168 hours a week, and your body is eating every single one of those hours! Mad respect for Simnett Nutrition

  • I love your energy! The Trader Joe’s seasoning sounds interesting! Gonna have to try it! I am DEFINITELY loving the no-oil cooking! Medical Medium says oil’s bad for the liver even the healthy oils, since it’s difficult to process so I am so glad to see your method works! Thanks!

  • You say Oil is not healthy, but you use non sticky cooking mat and want to dip the fries in Ketchup? Non of it is healthy, Non stick produces toxic fum and Ketchup has way to much chemicals and sugar (all Caner feeding). Maybe when the Ketchup is homemade could be not that bad. But the idea fit the fries is great. Will do…Thank you

  • They also work really well if you slightly parboil them first. But maaan I was so waiting for you to put nutmeg on the yam! Cause yum!

  • They laughed when I told them I would get ripped with “Elite Muscle Formula”, but then I showed them the results. Google Elite Muscle Formula to see their reaction.

  • If you want to avoid all those calories just say it… dont say olive oil is not healthy… Event if it is only in your country.. Jizz Great vegan…

  • hey Derek, do you and your friends play any card or board games? I just got this game called Flapjacks and Sasquatches by Prolific Games, I think you would have a blast playing it. It just looks like a game made by a Canadian
    … You know what they say about all work and no play….. c

  • Great fries in oven. I’m watching your video at 7am. You made me hungryi’m going to go make oven fries for breakfast. Thanks!! God bless you from grandma Katie in Oregon

  • That pale yellowish colored sweet potato he’s using is not the best for nutritional value. There are many different varieties, ranging from white to yellow to orange to purple. The orange is the most common variety. When shopping, choose those with the richest and deepest color. The intensity of the flesh color of the sweet potato is directly correlated to its nutritional content, so the more intense colouration the better.

  • Thanks dude…but you may want to leave the skin on the sweet spud.
    It’s really good for you and it tastes really good too.  Just make sure you clean it by rubbing it or using a wash cloth under cool running water and that’s all you need to do.

  • You people stop be in…… at least his doing something positive and giving some idea’s about healthy food cooking, if you can make it right, try it again or take some cooking classes, if it is not enough double the size of that recipe and quite whining big guy’s are the biggest WHINER BABIES ever

  • Have you ever heard of someone ordinary burning fat-and delighting in three full scrumptious meals at the same time? Just Google Skinnimaker Diet to discover more.

  • if you people would like to get ripped rapid without spending a single another minute in the gym, then you should look closely this online video COOK46.COM

  • Thank you for the video, love sweet potato fries, I’ve been buying mine still good but its always better to know what’s in your food.
    Thumbs up

  • You are correct. i know the bad fat is the reason that stopping 6 pack coming outside even we work out well.

    And My international body building trainer also recommended this 7 food elements to kill your fat belly.

    you can see it here

  • Sure is right. you can make your workout sessions much more productive if your eating the right foods to avoid fat and belly.

    And the surprising part is my friend who is not doing much excercises, maintaining his six pack with this secret food items.

    i found it here

  • That right. Crisping/charring anything, as tasty as it may seem to some, is very unhealthy for you. You want to avoid ingesting “Acrylamide” that is formed as a result of high temp frying, baking etc.
    A typical north American diet is a combination of poor food choices (including GMO’s) and improper high cooking temps resulting in a relatively sickly and obese populace.
    Forget blaming genetics, when it comes to our health it’s mainly all about what we put in your bodies.

  • I clicked on the video because i was enchanted by those gorgeous blue eyes. Now all i want to do is cook healthy and ditch the oil. Thx

  • these are good, i use some macadamia nut oil to coat and use garlic, paprika, cumin and tumeric and chilli for some extra flavour and kick, throw in some kale as well and you have kale and sweet potato crisps, both are really nutritious, low cal, low carb, no sugar, no trans fats.

  • Humans are CARNIVORES… NOT plant eaters. You’ve been LIED to by the CORPORATIONS who pushed plants to make MONEY. Every single human species is a carnivore and your health suffers bout eating what you’re supposed to. Eating plants causes the human body to EAT ITSELF. THE SCIENCE PAPERS YOU READ ARE LIES and have been for a century. Eat animals and everyone’s health no matter how sick will return. Wake up sleepers and deceived the news is out. Ex-vegan speaking here. They’ve ALL LIED.

  • The paprika was the perfect touch. I have tried a few youtubers ideas of baked fries. It always tasted like it was missing something. Thanks for the tidbit!!!

  • He recommended using oil at the end…did you even watch the video? Olive oil isn’t going to make you fat, Carbs can make you fat, or more importantly, a surplus of calories will make you fat. Good fats are not bad for a lean diet, they are good for you, your body needs fats.

  • When you say “clean eating”, do you mean eating only those things that the Bible says are clean and that God allows us to eat? If not, what do you mean then?

  • I don’t know why he used egg…mix them in the bowl with olive oil and salt and spices then bake them. The oil will help crisp them up…other than that it’s just time and temperature. Not all ovens are the same, most recipes in general require some degree of trial and error.

  • Hmm.. I tried to make baked sweet potato fries same as how you did it. but they turn out soggy. Any tips on how to make it crispy?

  • You know nothing about cooking. Egg-white out of the box and using cooking spray is just disgusting. Garlic powder? Is this the american way of cooking? I’m wondering you didn’t use synthetic potatoes.

  • If your desire is to get you a well-defined body, make sure to make a search on Google for “Oak Muscle Method”. You are sure to achieve the body you want.

  • 450* Fahrenheit is 232.2* Celcius….go to any Internet converter….or just know that the conversion is simply: *C= *F-32 / 1.80 (* means degrees here).

    Olive oil is 100%fat…don’t add it! Why? Also….cook your eggs in the morning with Coconut oil too…not olive oil. Why,….you ask? Oil becomes a transfat readily with high tempature manipulation…that’s why. C. oil….with it’s medium chain carbon ring saturated chemistry can take 350 degrees of heat and not go “trans” or burn.

  • Crazy clip. Fantastic movie. My buddy was once obese. He went from 284 lbs of pure fat to 209lbs of massive lean muscle mass. We thought it was marvelous! I just subscribed myself as I’m seeking to get heftier muscle mass. He used the Muscle Building Bible (Search on Google)…

  • It would be a shame if you did not build strength when normal people are able to build muscle easily with Mega Muscle Method (Look it up on google).

  • I wouldn`t do it like this. You bake them way to hot. potatos develop acrylamide if you bake them over 248°F. Mine take over an hour, but still very tasty and more healthy of course

  • Oh my god talking, talking, talking just get on with it.. Everyone knows what a bloody peeler is lol.. Jesus I guess he is American, and after all you have to spell everything out to them!

  • Hey, I have just started my working out-schedule and I was just wondering if these recipes are also healthy if you’re wanting to lose weight rather than being a body builder. Could you advise me? Thanks a lot!

  • Awesome video! Can I ask please if you weight the sweet potatoes before or after cooking and what macros do you count for it? thank you very much!

  • There’s a place in town I always go to for sweet potato fries and I just love the textures and flavors you get from them. Thank you so much for this recipe. I’m saving it.

  • Awesome video and recipe(s), but the reason I am commenting is just to say how awesome I find it that you interact with your viewers so much in the comments section, even on ‘older’ videos. You are one of my favourite cooking channels not just because of your awesome recipes and the way you make your videos super easy to follow, but also because you have a great personality and are so lovely to your viewers.

  • Why soaking them to remove starch and then add corn starch? You say that you want to remove the excess starch but then you say that sweet potato (rightfully so) need starch because they lack it

  • Or you can cook the peel into a smooth soup and keep the vitamins and fiber.

    Oops, you don’t want to get rid of the starch.. for crispness. Or so I understand. Then you add starch. Uuuuh??

  • Hi Chef, I’m making the fried version as I write this. I purchased expeller Sunflower oil, but what about Avocado or Coconut oil for deep frying?

  • So Chef..this is something I do not soak the sweet potatoes to remove the starch (in order to get crispy) and then you add starch (in order to get crispy).
    How does this work?

  • I like your recipe������.looks very tasty ����. New friend here������. I would also love some feedback so please check it out. keep it up:)

  • I tried the oven method and it was a disaster. They stuck to the parchment paper making them impossible to turn halfway through, and they were burned to a crisp after 35 mins in the oven.

  • Thank you for this video! Very easy to follow, and they taste great! Just curious as to why we have to let the fries cool after boiling them before frying them?

  • Yesterday I baked sweet potato!! I craved fried one but worried calories.. It was nice but some were bit bitter maybe I overcooked☹️ So im gonna make again following this recipe!! Now my new question is which one would be my snack between baked potato and baked sweet potato ��

  • I love sweet potato fries! Im totally making this soon using your method. Usually, I like to season them with italian herbs. Thanks Chef!

  • Cheers for the two ways to prep; not everyone wants to fry. And baked is tough to do unless you follow the method you describe. It is fried every time for me though!
