If you love your airfryer then there is nothing better than sweet potato fries.

Welcome to how to make the best ever Airfryer sweet potato fries recipe.

The first thing that we all make in an Airfryer is the French Fries. This is probably because with Airfryers this is what they marketed on.

Every advert or promotion that you see of an Airfryer will involve the trusted fries.

This will mean that some people will never see beyond these as a way of cooking in the Airfryer, or other people like us will see this as a starting point.

I find that another one of the reasons for this is that it can be a healthy way for you to have your chips or fries.

You are simply cooking them with less oil hence that they soon become healthy and okay for you to eat everyday that is if you love sweet potato fries enough to do that.

This particular sweet potato recipe is the one we developed after going on the Paleo diet.

We had discovered Paleo and we wanted to find a really nice fries recipe that didn’t involve eating white potatoes and this is the very one.  

It has been perfected and since then with the help of Kidz R Cooking we have realised how good it is for getting kids cooking in the kitchen.

The funny thing is though, when I was a teenager my mum and dad would be out when got home and the other thing in would be a big spud in the bottom of the fridge.

I would peel it and stick it in their commercial fat fryer and have it with a big spoonful of mayonnaise. It was amazing and so unhealthy!

  • Peel and chop up your sweet potatoes so that they resemble chunky chips.
  • Place them in the Airfryer with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and shake them so that the sweet potatoes are well covered.
  • Cook for 15 minutes at 180c. Though at the half way mark give the sweet potato a shake so that none are getting stuck to the bottom and so that they are all getting the effect of the olive oil.
  • When cooked remove them from the airfryer and place them in a bowl. Add the last tablespoon of olive oil along with the seasoning and mix well by either getting your hands in there or by shaking the dish. ´
  • Serve.


When you make the sweet potato fries make sure they are of an equal size. This is because if you get any ones with skinny ends compared to thick chunky middles you will end up with some burnt and some undercooked.
I also find that sizes of sweet potatoes can differ a lot so if this means you have a lot of spare sweet potatoes then chop it into cubes and air fry it separately.
