Cinnamon Baked Sweet Potato Fries

On most weekends, soon after getting up, I usually bake a big batch Sweet Potato fries which I leave out all day for us to graze on. Some days I like to vary it up with different spices, the simple addition of Cinnamon goes so well with the Sweet Potato. I preheat the oven while I chop and prepare the sweet potato, then pop it in, set the timer and go about the morning.

Sweet Potatoes

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

  • Preheat the oven to 225 degrees celcius
  • Line a large baking tray with baking paper
  • Wash and peel the sweet potatos
  • Cut in preferred size or just under 1cm thick and place in tray
  • Sprinkle with salt & cinnamon
  • Add coconut oil and mix around to spread evenly
  • Place in the oven on the middle rack for 25 mins
  • After 25 mins, give the sweet potato a gentle flip and return to the oven for another 15 mins
  • Flip the sweet potato again and return to the oven for another 10 mins
  • At this stage, check the sweet potato regularly if you notice some are burning, all ovens can vary and you can check them every 5 mins
  • The baking paper will ensure they don't stick to your tray but will enable them to crisp up
  • Hope you enjoy! xx
