These sweet potato fries are the perfect guilty pleasure minus all the guilt! Baking instead of frying eliminates excessive oil usage while allowing the crisping process to take place, making these fries one of our absolute favorite dip-ready snacks. Not to mention, skipping the peeling gives our wrists a break and keeps this recipe zero waste (double win!). Try this recipe out with your tried and true orange flesh sweet potatoes or get crazy with Japanese sweet potatoes! All in all, these are the fries you'll find yourself adding to your "heavy rotation" folder of recipes because they're so darn easy, healthy, and downright delectable.
