Oven Baked Crispy Sweet Potato Fries // Why buy frozen sweet potatoes when you can make some that are even more amazing? These will change your life! The secret ingredient will leave you pleasantly surprised! | Tried and TastySteve and I are huge fans of sweet potato fries. Like huge. We buy them by the truckloads at Costco (when they are in stock) or a few bags at a time at Target when they are on sale. At any given time you will find a bag in our freezer. What do you think of sweet potato fries? Are you more of the Double-Baked Crazy-Crisp Parmesan Oven Fries type? If I had to pick between the two.. I would probably go for the sweet potato fries. Crazy right? These are so good. Unbelievably delicious.

The secret ingredient will leave you pleasantly surprised! | Tried and TastyThese go really nicely with my Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burger, but of course go well with anything. We usually cook these up with some grilled chicken and steamed broccoli for a quick healthy meal. There’s a secret ingredient that I wasn’t sure would play out successfully. Want to know what it is? Well, you know how I’m addicted to coconut oil? If you aren’t familiar of my love – check out Get Healthy in 2014: Kitchen Basics II and you can read all about it. I wanted to swap the olive oil in the original recipe for coconut oil and hoped for the best. Results? AMAZING! These fries are ridiculously tasty. Pretty much we won’t be buying the frozen fries any more. These are waayy better (and the frozen ones are pretty darn good!).

    Yvonne, these are wonderful but I can’t get them to stop sticking to the pan (I use aluminum foil on the cookie sheets, have coated it with coconut oil, sprayed with Pam…no joy!). Any tricks?! I think I have a problem with my oven :(. They are still tasty, if not a little disfigured! :)

    1. Yvonne

      No way! You’ve tried all of that and they STILL stick?!? That’s crazy!!! You used all of the suggestions I would have given you – I’ve got one more you can try. Maybe what about parchment paper?? That may work for you! So happy you liked them though!

    1. Yvonne

      An all-natural option would be arrowroot powder, however I haven’t made them with it yet. It’s a great substitute!

      Ohmygoodness, thank you so much! You are so kind and your words are so appreciative – THANK YOU!!! Hugs to you as well!

    So GOOD! After trying a handful of recipes that promised crispy fries and disappointed with sweet potato mush, this recipe actually delivers!!! Crispy and delicious!

    1. Yvonne

      You can use any kind of oil that you have, olive, vegetable, canola.. my preference it coconut! Anything should work!

    1. Yvonne

      Not a silly question at all! It’s what helps give them the crispy crust! Without it, they don’t get crispy.. until they are burnt ;)

  4. Laurie

    Yeah, as promised! I didn’t know you needed to soak them 1st, so I am glad you have this post! Definitely trying these this weekend!

    1. Yvonne

      You’ve got to try it, with this recipe I’m convinced we probably will never buy store bought again – these are just too good!
