This oven baked spicy sweet potato recipe is whole 30 friendly, healthy and thin cut fries come out crispy every time.

I ventured out into the world of sweet potatoes several years ago when I decided to do a Whole30. What is a Whole30 you ask? Basically its 30 days of eating meats, veggies, fruits and nuts without any processed foods, grains or sugar. I can’t tell you how amazing I felt a few weeks into it! I had so much energy (and I had 3 small children at the time). It was a really good reset button for my body and I figure out what foods I feel best eating.

I never really was a sweet potato fan until I tried these spicy sweet potato fries out. Serve it as a side with a nice juicy burger and you have yourself a great meal. My daughters LOVE these also! They have the perfect blend of spices and heat!

Before you start, make sure you have a very VERY sharp knife. Now grab 2 large sweet potatoes. Peel them with a vegetable peeler and cut them into very thin slices.

The Best Knife set review

2 sweet potatoes will yield quite a few fries. You want them thin so that they crisp up as they cook. It’s hard to get them crispy in the oven, but cutting them thin will definitely allow them to crisp up.

I like mine spicy so I put a little more cayenne pepper powder in it. DO NOT ADD THE SALT UNTIL AFTER THEY BAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry for yelling, but that is very important. If you add salt before you bake them, they will most definitely become mushy, and you don’t want mushy fries.

Put the sweet potatoes on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper

Make sure they aren’t stacked on top of each other. The more space they have the crispier they will get. Bake for 15 minutes and then toss them. Bake for another 5-10 minutes until brown and crispy. Add the salt immediately after removing them from the oven.
