Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Baked, Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potatoes are a favorite food of mine that I don’t get a chance to eat all of the time. Whether it be mashed sweet potatoes or sweet potato fries, I enjoy every bite. I like making sweet potato fries because it’s an added veggie to get into my son’s diet. He is a big fan of french fries however I feel that sweet potatoes are a healthier alternative because they are filled with vitamins and fiber. You can make the sweet potato fries however you would like. I chose to make the following recipe with a bit of a spicy side!


  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons Kelapo coconut oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne


  1. Peel sweet potatoes to remove the skins. Slice into 1/4-inch long slices, then 1/4-wide inch strips
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and in a large bowl, soak sweet potatoes in cold water for 1 hour.
  3. Remove potatoes from cold water and pat dry.
  4. Place potatoes on baking sheet and coat with coconut oil. Sprinkle the dry seasonings onto the potatoes.
  5. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until tender, turning about halfway through baking.
  6. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
This is a such a personal, favorite recipe of mine because of the versatility. Not only does the coconut oil bring out the flavor of the sweet potatoes and spices but it also gives the dish a slightly sweet taste. If you aren’t in the mood for a spicy fry, try omitting the spices and only use sea salt when baking. When the sweet potatoes are done, serve with our delicious marshmallow sauce for an added bit of sweetness. Your taste buds are sure to love you for this treat!
