Baked sweet potato fries have always been my favorite! They are quick and easy, a great source of fiber, and delicious! This recipe is baked instead of fried so you can cut out excess oil. Baked sweet potatoes are healthy and a delicious snack and side dish you can enjoy at home! And it's easy and quick to make. I always keep a few sweet potatoes at home in case I am craving a snack but I don't want to eat junk food.

Can you eat the skins of sweet potatoes?

Yes! You can eat sweet potato skins and they actually have a lot of nutrients! They are high in antioxidants like beta carotene, vitamins C and E, chlorogenic acid, and anthocyanin. And the fiber content mainly comes from the sweet potato skin. 

Should I boil sweet potatoes before baking?

No, you do not need to boil them because they will be cooked thoroughly while you are baking them. If you want the sweet potato fries to be crispy you definitely don’t want to boil them and get them soggy. 

How to make sweet potato fries crispy

Make sure you separate and spread out the sweet potato fries on your baking sheet. Use 2 sheets if you need to. You don’t want them to be overlapping or touching each other when you bake them.
