  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into fries
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat your oven to 450ºF.
  • Divide the sweet potato between two baking pans and drizzle with olive oil. In a small bowl mix together the salt, garlic powder, cumin, paprika, cayenne, black pepper, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over sweet potatoes and stir to coat. Place in oven and bake until fries are crispy, turning halfway though, about 30 minutes. Serve with ketchup.


We like these fries really crispy, with brown along the edges.
You can also leave the skin on the sweet potato if desired.
