Sweet Potato Fries

4th of July long weekend is almost here and we think that a side of #SweetPotatoFries can be a great idea to pair with burgers, a nice steak, grilled tofu, or a good afternoon snack.⁠
We bet that your family will start requesting more often than the holiday season, and we spiced it up with tons of high powerful antioxidant seasoning to make it even more special.⁠

Sweet Potato Fries⁠
Yield: 2⁠
Prep time: 5 min⁠
Total time: 35 min ⁠

2 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean⁠
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted⁠
½ tsp salt⁠
1 ½ tsp garlic powder⁠
1 ½ tsp smoked paprika (optional)⁠
1 ½ tsp dried oregano (optional)⁠
1 tsp dried thyme (optional)⁠
¼ tsp black pepper⁠
¼ tsp cayenne pepper⁠
1 tbsp coconut sugar (optional)⁠
1/4 tsp #turmeric (optional)⁠
Maple syrup (optional)⁠

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.⁠
2. Leave the skin on and cut sweet potatoes into thin, even match sticks with a very sharp knife.⁠
3. Transfer to two baking sheets and drizzle with coconut oil. Then sprinkle with seasonings, sugar, and toss.⁠
4. Transfer fries to 1 large or 2 baking sheets (or more if making a larger batch) and arrange in a single layer to ensure they crisp up.⁠
5. 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 to offset spiciness.⁠
Make sure to tell us when you bake it and tag us along the way #wahlwholistickids so we can see your creation.⁠
