Air-Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

I can never get enough of these air-fryer sweet potato fries! Even though my grocery store sells them in the frozen foods section, I still love to pull sweet potatoes out of my garden and chop them up fresh! —Amber Massey, Argyle, Texas

      I feel like we under-utilize our air fryer, so I was determined to pair last night's tofu chi*ken nuggets with these, and searched for an air-fryer version of them. Since they weren't cut as thin as the recipe said (more like steak fries) I had to put 'em in for a second time. But they still came out great! I used melted coconut oil since it was easier to grab, and I think that's how a favorite restaurant makes theirs.

      Tasty, not greasy and healthier, and mess-free. One gotta love the air-fryer!

      This recipe is absolutely delicious! It’s very flavorful and well seasoned. I did it exactly as it said except I used olive oil because that’s what I had on hand. Thank you!
