Ingredients

  • 2

    large sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean (organic when possible)

  • 2

    tablespoon olive, canola or melted coconut oil

  • 1/2

    teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1

    teaspoon dried (or 2 teaspoons fresh) thyme

  • 1/4

    teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/4

    teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • OPTIONAL:

  • 1

    tablespoon sugar of choice (coconut and cane are best)

Directions

Preheat oven to 425˚F. Leave the skin on and cut sweet potatoes into thin, even matchsticks with a very sharp knife. Transfer to two baking sheets and drizzle with olive oil. Then sprinkle with seasonings, sugar and toss. Transfer fries to 1 large or 2 baking sheets and arrange in a single layer to ensure they crisp up. Bake for 15 minutes and flip/stir to cook on the other side. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes more, or until brown and crispy. You'll know they're done when the edges are dark brown and crispy. Remove from oven and either serve as is, or drizzle with a bit of maple syrup or honey to offset spiciness. Serve plain or with your favorite dip, such as whiskey bbq ketchup.
