Get Started

Coconut-Crusted Sweet Potato Fries

Serves 4

2 large sweet potatoes, cut length-wise
2 tsp coconut oil
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
2 Tbsp coconut flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2. In a food processor, pulse the coconut flakes until they become more fine. (You can skip this step if the flakes are already this consistency.)

3. Add the flakes, coconut flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a medium bowl.

4. Coat the sweet potato slices with coconut oil (you may need more depending on size) and roll each into the coconut flake mixture.

5. Add the coated slices to the baking tray and bake for 20–30 minutes. Flip, and then bake another 10 minutes or until cooked to your liking. Enjoy!
