I love potatoes to what honestly is a somewhat unhealthy extent.

It really doesn’t matter what they are made into. Fries, chips, wedges — I love them all.

So, in a bid to try and eat a little healthier, I decided to try my hand at making sweet potato fries.

I honestly never have been a big believer in replacing one food with a healthier substitute that “tastes just the same.”

Generally speaking, they usually don’t taste the same — I’m looking at you, almond butter.

Then came sweet potato fries, and while they don’t taste exactly like actual French fries, they still have amazing and unique flavor all their own.

This recipe is slightly labor-intensive, but less so than making mashed potatoes. The end product was fairly tasty — at least, in my opinion.

If you are willing to put in a little work, these sweet potato fries definitely are worth it.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Wash and peel the sweet potatoes before cutting them into shoestring fries. While you also can make them into wedges, this will add to the cooking time if you want them to be crisp.
  3. Melt coconut oil in a large bowl in the microwave. Toss fries in oil and place them on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  4. Place sheets on the bottom rack and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn them over and put the sheet in for another 10 minutes, or until the fries are crisp. The cooking time will vary, depending on your oven.
