Why Sweet Potato Fries?

Sweet potatoes are nutritional powerhouses! They’re loaded with vitamins, minerals, and fiber, making them a much healthier alternative to regular fries. They’re also naturally sweet, so you don’t need to pile on the unhealthy toppings.


  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional: your favorite herbs and spices (e.g., cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper)


1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).

4. Spread the sweet potato sticks in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure they’re not overcrowding the pan, as this will prevent them from crisping up.

5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through, until golden brown and crispy.

6. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauces. Some healthy options include guacamole, hummus, yogurt dip, or even a simple sprinkle of sea salt.


  • For extra crispy fries, soak the sweet potato sticks in cold water for 30 minutes before baking.
  • If you don’t have parchment paper, you can use a nonstick baking sheet.
  • Don’t overcrowd the pan! This will make the fries soggy.
  • Serve the fries hot and fresh for the best flavor and texture.

Sweet Potato Fries Variations:

  • Spicy: Add a pinch of cayenne pepper or chili powder to the seasoning mix.
  • Garlic Parmesan: Sprinkle the fries with grated Parmesan cheese and a touch of garlic powder after baking.
  • Buffalo: Toss the fries in your favorite buffalo sauce after baking.
  • Loaded: Top the fries with shredded cheese, black beans, and salsa.

No matter how you serve them, these sweet potato fries are sure to be a hit at your Super Bowl party! They’re healthy, delicious, and easy to make, so what are you waiting for? Start prepping now and get ready to wow your guests.

I hope this helps!
