Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

I have been a huge fan of Sweet potato fries for years now. I love the flavor of them and the healthier option to the standard french fry. More recently I have become obsessed with Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries. They are crispy on the outside and tender and delicious on the inside and use way less oil than deep frying them. Once you make these Air Fryer Sweet Potato fries it will be your new favorite way to prepare french fries. Pair these with our delicious Air Fryer Crispy chicken wings or our air fryer buffalo cauliflower bites and you are in for quite the treat!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure to cut your sweet potatoes all the same size. This allows them to cook at the same speed. 
  • If you want your sweet potato fries to be even more crispy you can soak them in cold water for up to 60 minutes prior to placing them in your air fryer to cook. 
  • The thinner you cut the fries the more crispy they will be. Try to cut each fry ¼ inch to ½ inch thick. 
  • Be sure to not overcrowd your basket of fries. Doing so will make them steam rather than become crispy.

The number one cause of soggy sweet potatoes is moisture. It is a good idea to pat down all your fries prior to coating your fries with oil and seasoning.
