Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

We invested in an air fryer a few months ago. Let me tell you, it has saved so much time in the kitchen with its minimal cooking time and gives your food that crispiness and crunchiness it lacks from the oven – at least often times! (Let me emphasize again, it saves you so much time!).

We bought this air fryer and have had great results with it. I’ve made a number of different things with it and after some practice, I’ve started to nail it. It quite depends what I’m making that will require some “mastering”.

These air fryer sweet potato fries gives that crispiness in just 20 minutes compared to a regular oven that has a 40-60 minute sweet potato cook time.

Sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin A and have a low-glycemic index. When adding healthy fat (olive oil) to this dish, it keeps the glycemic index low post-baking which is optimal for blood sugar regulation. This makes sweet potatoes a useful carbohydrate in terms of balancing your hormones naturally.
