Making homemade sweet potato fries has never been easier than with the air fryer! Made in a fraction of the time with no frying, these Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries will be a healthy family favorite snack or side dish!
Prep the sweet potatoes by peeling the skin (or you can leave the skin on), then slice the potatoes into french fries: Slice a potato in half lengthwise with a chef’s knife. Lay each half cut-side down. Slice lengthwise into ¼ thick slices. Stack about half of the slices and cut lengthwise into ¼ inch thick fries. Repeat with the rest.
Fill a bowl with ice and water. Place the sliced sweet potatoes into the ice bath and swish them around a bit. Let the sweet potato slices soak for 30 minutes. Remove the sweet potato slices after 30 minutes, and using a clean kitchen towel pat them completely dry.
Add the dried slices to a ziplock bag or bowl. Add oil and seasonings, then toss to coat. Lightly spray the bottom of the air fryer with oil spray, then add the sweet potato fries in a single layer to the air fryer.
Set the air fryer to 400 degrees and 8 minutes. When the time is up, shake around the fries, then close the air fryer and cook 4-5 more minutes at 400 degrees. Check after 4 minutes, and add additional time for desired crispiness. Remove from the air fryer and serve with your favorite sauce.
To reheat: Add sweet potato fries back to the air fryer. Cook 2-3 minutes on 400 degrees.
