  • 16 ounces sweet potato (I used one large, weighed on my food scale. Between 14 - 16 ounces works)
  • 1/2 teaspoon course sea salt (or more, to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil (or oil of choice)


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 380 degrees.

  2. Slice up your sweet potato into pinkie finger sized sticks (mine are between 1/4 and 1/2 inch). I don't measure, and they don't have to be perfect, but try to keep the size fairly consistent.

  3. Place the potato slices in a mixing bowl, along with the oil, salt, pepper and paprika, and toss to coat.

  4. Transfer fry mixture to the air fryer, and cook until tender and crispy (about 20 minutes). Shake the basket a few times to rearrange the fries, and use a flipper to flip them. Use your own judgement, cooking longer or shorter, if needed, keeping an eye on the fries to make sure they don't burn.

  5. Taste test, and add more salt if needed.
