Sweet Spiced Sweet Potato Fries

A sweet twist on the classic sweet potato fries, these Sweet Spiced Sweet Potato Fries satisfy those mid-day sweet cravings.

Sweet Spiced Sweet Potato Fries

Another day, another sweet potato recipe. I hope you love sweet potatoes because the recipes aren't stopping anytime soon. When I started my Elimination Diet, I decided to use sweet potatoes as my base food. So lots of my future recipes will likely involve some type of sweet potato.

If you haven't jumped on the sweet potato train, you definitely should. Sweet potatoes have tons of nutrients. Specifically, they are packed with Vitamin A and contain tons of fiber. Sweet potatoes also boast Vitamins B5 and B6 as well as some minerals like copper, manganese, and potassium.

PSA: an 8 ounce serving of sweet potato (about half a large potato) has almost twice as much potassium as a banana. Not that I have anything against bananas... They're one of my favorite foods (along with sweet potatoes, of course).

Anyways, let's dive into these Sweet Spiced Sweet Potato Fries. These fries are very similar to my Baked Sweet Potato Fries, which are seasoned with paprika and other savory spices. But, as the name suggests, they're sweet! As in, sweeter than plain sweet potatoes.

Ingredients

Sweet Potatoes: Just your average sweet potatoes are perfect. Make sure you wash them, but don't remove the skins - this is where the fiber is.

Spices. I love the combination of cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. In fact, I use it in my turmeric latte recipes (iced and hot). Even though they are traditionally fall spices, they all have that sugariness that works well in sweet recipes.

Vanilla. For some extra aroma and a hint of flavor, we'll add some vanilla extract.

How to Make Sweet Spiced Sweet Potato Fries

This recipe is super simple.

Step 1. Slice up a sweet potato into fry-shaped wedges, toss on some vanilla extract and water, mix in the cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. The prep time is seriously less than 5 minutes.

Step 2. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the fries are nice and crispy. Remove from the oven and enjoy!

Recipe Prayer

Lord, thank you for simple recipes made from delicious foods. We are so grateful for each meal that we get to eat. Amen.

Hi Could you please confirm two things:1. The amount of salt. Seems like too much. 2. The directions say there is lemon juice in the dressing but it’s not listed under ingredients. ThanksL.
Hi there! Confirming that the two teaspoons of salt in the dressing is correct. I didn't salt the cauliflower when roasting it or the salad after it was done, so this amount of salt was perfect. If you're concerned about it you can decrease the amount of salt in the dressing and then add more at the end if you need it. As for the lemon juice, SO sorry about that! It was a typo in my directions and I've removed it now. Hope this helps :)

This looks lovely! Do you have a recipe for the red pepper hummus also? Thank you!
Hi Martha! I don't have a recipe for red pepper hummus on my site. I suggest taking a traditional hummus recipe and blending in roasted red pepper.

I tried these and they were delicious! A bit dense but flavorful and the "buckeye" blend of peanut and chocolate was on point! Recommend!
Yay! I'm so glad you liked them! -- Elizabeth

Hi, these look amazing. I was wondering, could I used powdered peanut butter in place of creamy for the recipe? thanks
Hi Grace! There is already some powdered peanut butter in this recipe, so adding more might make the texture more gluey. Also, the real peanut butter adds some fat, which helps create flavor. That said, if you want to use powdered peanut butter, I would suggest mixing it with a high-fat liquid like coconut cream and then measuring out 2/3 cup. Hope this helps! Let me know how it goes :) -- Elizabeth

You mention using vegetable broth in your introduction but it isn’t included in the recipe
Hi Becky - thanks for pointing this out. I have removed mention of vegetable broth from this post. You do not need any vegetable broth. The mushrooms will release natural liquid which will prevent any sticking. -- Elizabeth

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
