Paleo-Friendly Sweet Potato Fries

Thanks to Jess, here is a great recipe for Sweet Potato Fries. I will also post a dessert-ier (?) variation below.

Warning: Sweet Potato Fries are nearly as addictive as crack. Eat at your own risk and do NOT overdose! While they are Paleo-friendly, they are also a high-density carb. They are great as a post-workout snack or on occasion, but can be over-consumed!

Sweet Potato Fries


2 Sweet Potatoes
1 TBSP Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
Juice of 1/2 lime


Preheat oven to 425 F. Wash and dry potatoes. With skin on, slice into 1/2" thick rounds. Cut the rounds into 1/2" finger-shaped pieces. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with oil and spices.

On a baking sheet, spread the fries in a single layer and roast, stirring every 10 minutes until browned and tender; about 30-35 min. Remove from oven, transfer to platter or bowl and squeeze lime juice over top.

Dessert Variation:


2 Sweet Potatoes
2 TBSP Coconut Oil, melted


Follow above instructions, but toss potatoes with coconut oil and sprinkle with cinnamon. I recommend lining the baking sheet with parchment paper or foil to prevent fries from sticking.
