Why Use an Air Fryer?

So one of the reasons I am late to the air fryer game is that I am a pretty traditional girl when it comes to cooking methods. THAT SAID, now that I have an air fryer I see the appeal.! It’s very fast, everything turns out crispy, and you can get that crispiness without deep frying. Of course, I still want you to use healthy fats in your cooking, because I am all about those healthy fats! So I encourage you to stick to extra virgin olive oil, butter/ghee, avocado or coconut oil when using your air fryer. Cool quality organic cooking sprays are fine too.

How to Make Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries (Whole30):

So, this is how easy this recipe is, simply peel and slice potatoes into 1/4″ ‘sticks’, then coat in healthy fat of your choice, sprinkle with sea salt and pop in the air fryer. Cook for 14 minutes and boom! You have crispy, healthy sweet potatoes.

Can You Reheat Leftovers? Yes you can!

If you happen to have leftovers (I never do, ha!) You can pop them back in the air fryer and heat for a couple of minutes. They won’t be quite as crispy as first day fries, but still really good.

Can I Make Less or More?

Yes and no. You can make less, using just one potato if you like. But you can’t add a third potato or the fries won’t cook well.

Want Variations? Want Dip? I’ve Got Them! 

Want to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to your fries? How about adding cinnamon for a for a sweet treat, or if savory is more your jam, add some fresh rosemary. As far as dips go you can’t beat a good ranch dip!
