Servings: 4

INGREDIENTS

*choose long, thin shaped sweet potatoes so they are easier to cut into fries

METHOD
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Cut sweet potatoes and carrots evenly into thin slices. *Leave the skins of the potatoes on for extra fiber and nutrients*
  3. Toss fries with cornstarch and set aside for 5 minutes. (Tip: the cornstarch brings out some of the moisture in the fries allowing them to get crispy while baking).
  4. In a zip top bag, add paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, cinnamon, salt, pepper, and cayenne.
  5. Spray fries with cooking spray, add maple syrup, and stir until coated. Add fries to zip top bag. Shake bag until fries are evenly coated with spices.
  6. Place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Spray the aluminum foil liberally with cooking spray.
  7. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.
  8. Stir and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until crispy.
