  • 1 lb. sweet potatoes peeled or peel on
  • 1 Tbsp. oil avocado or olive
  • ½ - ¾ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. paprika optional
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder optional


  1. Heat air fryer to 375°F for at least 3 minutes.
  2. Cut potatoes into long strips (4-6 inches in length) that are ½” wide by ¼” thick.
  3. Add fries to a large bowl and drizzle with oil.  Toss fries until well coated.
  4. Sprinkle with salt, paprika, and garlic powder. Toss fries until completely coated in the seasonings.
  5. Place fries in a single layer into the air fryer basket with none of the fries touching.  (If you're using a 6-quart air fryer you'll need to cook the fries in 2 batches in order to have enough room to do this.)*
  6. Cook fries for 12-14 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  7. Serve with ketchup, Sriracha Mayo, or Remoulade Sauce.

Recipe Notes

  • If you're cooking fries in batches, heat your oven to 250°F.  Add the first batch of fries to a baking sheet and pop them in the oven to keep them warm while the second batch is cooking.
