  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 2 pinches kosher salt
  • 3 shakes paprika
  • 3 shakes onion powder
  • 3 shakes garlic powder
  • 1 darn chipotle powder optional



  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  • Slice sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch planks and then into equal sized strips or "fries". Place them into a medium bowl and spritz with olive oil spray, tossing and spraying until coated.
  • Season with a few pinches of kosher salt and a few shakes of paprika, onion, garlic and chipotle powder. Toss to coat.
  • Spray the basket to your air fryer and preheat it to 390-400° (depending on your model).
  • Work in batches of 4 or more, place a few of the seasoned sweet potato fries into the basket in an even layer. Try not to crowd the basket. Cook for 4 minutes, shake the basket or use tongs to flip the fries and continue to air fry for an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the crispy sweet potato fries to a wire rack before repeating. Note that smaller end pieces may be done after the first 4 minutes.Serve immediately.
  • Or to warm them back up, add all of the sweet potato fries back into the air fryer and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
