Sweet potato fries in the air fryer can be a delicious & healthier alternative to traditional fried fries. Here’s the ultimate recipe for the best sweet potato fries!

Ingredients Sweet Potato Fries in the Air Fryer:


Peel and cut the sweet potato into evenly sized-matchsticks. You can use a fry cutter for this. It´s faster & your fries will turn out more even. Now, put them in a large bowl & toss the sweet potato matchsticks with olive oil until they are evenly coated.

Mix the cornstarch, paprika, onion powder, cumin, chili powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl.

Sprinkle the spice mixture over the sweet potatoes and toss until the fries are well coated with the spices.

Place the seasoned sweet potato fries in the air fryer basket in a single layer, ensuring they are not crowded to ensure even cooking.

Pro Tip: Use an air fryer baking sheet so your air fryer won´t get too dirty.

Set your air fryer to 400°F (200°C), depending on what model you have. Cook in the air fryer for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket every 5 minutes to ensure your sweet potato fries are cooked evenly. The fries should be golden brown and crispy on the outside.

Once done, remove the sweet potato fries from the air fryer and let them cool for a minute before serving.

Serve the sweet potato fries with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ketchup, aioli, or any dip you like.
