How to Make Sweet Potato Fries in Air Fryer

Ok, so I still can’t believe how easy it is to make BOMB food in the air fryer! Whatever you put into it comes out as crispy, hot, tasty deliciousness! These airfryer sweet potato fries are no exception! Here’s how you’re going to make them:

Heat it up

Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.


Toss your potatoes in the oil in a large bowl. Add the cornstarch and toss it again, making sure the cornstarch is well dissolved.


Spread your fries out evenly in the basket of your air fryer. Be sure to leave space between each fry, so you may need to do them in 2 batches! Sprinkle them with salt.


Let your fries cook until they are golden brown, which will take about 15-20 minutes.


Take the fries out of your air fryer and dig in!
