The best sweet potato fries recipe! With my tip on how to get them extra crispy. Easy gluten-free and vegan recipe!

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 35 mins

Yield: Serves 2-3 1x


  • 23 large sweet potatoes (any variety works!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 12 tablespoons avocado oil + more for pan


  1. Cut the sweet potatoes in half and the lengthwise
  2. In a large bowl add cut potatoes, spices and avocado oil and toss well
  3. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and line a baking tray with parchment paper
  4. In a cast iron skillet (or large pan) turn to medium/high heat and add a generous drizzle of avocado oil
  5. Add coated potatoes on top (you may need to do two batches depending on how large the pan is)
  6. “Fry” the sweet potatoes for about 3 minutes so they get a nice crunch coating then pour onto baking sheet
  7. Bake in oven for 20 minutes (flipping half way) then broil for 2 minutes on high and enjoy!
