When I’m in the mood for something that feels a little “naughty”, there’s nothing more satisfying than cooking up a bowl of sweet potato fries. I discovered this recipe recently and I’m in love! Not only are these fries baked and 100% good for you, the cinnamon and coconut adds a rich depth of flavor. They are finger-licking good!
If you're after a savory version, just swap the cinnamon for black pepper and a dash of cayenne or you could try a rosemary and himalayan salt version.
Easy Coconut-Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fries
- 4 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit. (200° Celcius)
Cut ends off sweet potatoes and peel if they are not organic. Slice them lengthwise, then into strips about 1/4" thick.
In a large bowl, toss sweet potato slices with coconut oil, cinnamon and salt, making sure all pieces are coated.
Spread out over baking sheet. Bake for 40-45 minutes (until edges are lightly browned), flipping halfway.
