These fries are my go-to when I want something warming, indulgent and decadent. Unlike the fries you would order at a restaurant, this version is baked and 100% good for you! The recipe is super simple and makes the perfect weeknight side dish or snack.

For a savory version, simply swap the cinnamon for black pepper and a dash of cayenne.

Easy Coconut-Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fries

serves 4


  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt


Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit.

Cut ends off sweet potatoes and peel if they are not organic. Slice them lengthwise, then into strips about 1/4" thick.

In a large bowl, toss sweet potato slices with coconut oil, cinnamon and salt, making sure all pieces are coated.

Spread out over baking sheet. Bake for 40-45 minutes (until edges are lightly browned), flipping halfway.
