Recipe: Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries

So I have kind of gone off the deep end with my diet for the past two weeks, topping it off with way-too-delicious pizza and creamy cookies last night. In celebration of coming back to my senses, I’m going to share a yummy and healthy recipe with you. 🙂

These are way easy and are our go-to French fry substitute here at the Arlington Mama house. DE-LI-CIOUS!! I’d be quite surprised if your kiddos don’t like them, too!


8 small sweet potatoes (or 4 medium; or 2 large)

3 tsp olive oil

1 tsp salt

1 tsp turbinado sugar (granulated will work, too)

2 tsp paprika


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl add the oil, salt, sugar, and paprika.

Peel and cut up your sweet potatoes into long, skinny fries.

I got these sweet potatoes from my produce co-op, and I LOVE them. They’re all different colors, making it a pretty dish, and are oh-so sweet and delicious. I think they make the best fries, but if you can’t find them then any sweet potato or yam will work.

Add the fries to the large bowl and toss them with your hands until all of the fries are covered with the other ingredients. (Beauty hint: after you’re done tossing, the ingredients make a nice scrub for your hands. I always rub it around really well and then just rinse, not wash. It leaves your hands feeling awesome!)

Pour the fries out onto a baking sheet and spread them out as much as possible.

If they’re too close together, you might want to put them on two separate sheets.

Pop them in the oven for about 16-20 minutes, flipping them midway through.

Serve with catsup or by themselves. Let me know if you try them and if you love them as much as I do!
