As most of you know, I completely revamped my lifestyle and diet about 7 months ago. And it’s totally changed my life in some really profound ways.
I’ve tried a lot of new things as part of that — including vegetables for breakfast! — and have found some recipes and food combinations that I absolutely love.
These Healthy Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries have become a family favorite. They are very simple to make (only two ingredients!), you basically can’t mess up the recipe (well, you probably could, but you’d have to try pretty hard!), and they are packed with nutrition!
A word of warning, though: these are crazy addictive. And when you know that they are healthy, it’s hard not to just keep eating and eating them until half the pan is gone. Ask me how I know! 😉
Here’s the very simple recipe…
Healthy Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries
- Sweet Potatoes
- Oil (I use grapeseed oil, although you could use olive oil or other oil, too.)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash, peel, and slice potatoes into fries. Spread out onto a baking sheet. Drizzle oil over.
Bake at 450 degrees for 20-35 minutes. The baking time will depend upon how thin or thick your fries are sliced (thinner slices bake faster than thicker slices!), how many fries you put on your baking sheet (fewer fries on a baking sheet will cook faster) and also how crispy you like your fries (we love ours crispy and somewhat browned!).
I usually pull them out at least 1-2 times while baking to flip them with a spatula so that all sides get baked evenly.
Let cool at least 5-10 minutes before serving. If there are any left over (!), store in an airtight container.
