Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Baked, Not Fried

Prep: 10 Min | Cook: 25-30 Min

Baked, not fried, these sweet potato fries have all the flavor without the extra fat.




2 Medium Sweet Potatoes, Peeled
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Light Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt, plus Extra for Sprinkling
1/2 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil greased with cooking spray.
  2. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise and cut each half into long spears. For the crispiest taters, soak in cold water for 20-30 minutes. Drain well and pat dry. Place the potato spears on the sheet pan and toss with olive oil. Spread them in a single layer. Combine the brown sugar, salt, and pepper and sprinkle on the potatoes. Bake for 15 minutes and then turn with a spatula or tongs. Bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Sprinkle lightly with kosher salt and serve hot. Enjoy!
