Air-fried sweet potato fries are crispy, tender and delicately sweet. They're also made with less fat than traditional fries, so they're a healthier option when you're craving crunchy spuds. If the cinnamon-pepper spice is too intense, try thyme, oregano, paprika or garlic instead.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Lightly coat an air-fryer basket with cooking spray.

  • Combine oil, salt, pepper, cayenne and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add sweet potatoes; toss to coat completely.

  • Place the sweet potatoes in a single layer in the prepared basket. Cook at 400 degrees F until browned and crispy, about 14 minutes, flipping halfway through. Transfer the fries to a paper-towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil. Serve immediately.
