Recipe: Healthy Sweet Potato Fries

Jonas and I love sweet potatoes and we especially enjoy sweet potato fries! Now I always aim to make our meals quite healthy so I make baked sweet potato fries which we both love! I decided to finally share this simple and delicious recipe!

Recipe: Serves 2


2 large sweet potatoes

1 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt

1/4 tsp Cayenne

2 tbsp Olive Oil


  1. Wash and cut the sweet potatoes into thin strips that are the size of regular fries- put them onto a baking sheet or baking pan that is big enough to allow all the fries to be spread out as a single layer – this will allow them to cook evenly and become more crispy.
  2. Drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle himalayan pink salt and cayenne and toss with your hands to evenly coat the potatoes.
  3. Bake at 180 degrees C for 30-40 minutes, tossing or flipping the potatoes half-way. You’ll know they are done when they become a bit golden and you can stick a fork into the middle with a bit of resistance from the outer skin of the potato.

Let the fries cool a bit and enjoy! Great as a side dish for lunch or dinner!

  1. Great tip to leave the skin on – I usually peel them but will try this next time!
