Hardbody Cooking: Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

If you haven’t tried making your own sweet potato fries, you are missing out. These might be the single most addicting healthy food you’ll ever make. Seriously, they are THAT good. We experimented with two different approaches this after noon and while both were great one was a bit better tasting. You can adapt the recipe below to suit your current nutrition needs but definitely give it a try, you’re only regret will be wishing you’d done it years ago.


• Preheat oven to 425 degrees
• Peel the skin off from the sweet potato. We used 2 medium sized but use as many as you like to cook at one time.
• Slice as large or small of pieces as you like. We sliced smaller, thinner and it made more so it felt like we’re getting more to eat. We all know how that goes when dieting.
• Cover a sheet pan with tin foil

We did two different versions with the oil/spray and you can modify this with your own preferred oil or none at all.

• Version 1 – we laid the potato slices out on the pan and sprayed with regular cooking spray.
• Version 2 – we put about 1 tablespoon of almond oil onto the pan and then put the slices on top of it.
• Sprinkle with cinnamon
• Place in the oven for 20-30 minutes and then flip/rearrange for another 30 minutes.

Some slices will get burnt and believe it or not, the burnt ones taste better. We’ll be leaving the fries in longer next time to crisp them up a bit more.  Let cool and enjoy. Your house will smell amazing as the cinnamon bakes. Version 2 with almond oil provided a much better taste. We used Spectrum Almond Oil.

Almond Oil, Refined
Almonds have long been hailed for their high content of monounsaturated fat. We coax out the almond’s oil by expeller pressing and gently refine it using natural methods to create a clean, fresh oil perfect for smoothing on skin, blending custom massage oils, or for high heat cooking in the kitchen.

A high heat cooking oil rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats with a pure, clean flavor.

High Heat Up To 495°F

The only problem is we want to keep eating them! So you might want to make only a few at a time so you don’t over indulge in them.
