Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450F, line a baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  2. Wash and peel your sweet potatoes.
  3. Chop them into fry like sizes trying to make them as uniform as possible.
  4. Make seasoning mix by combining tapioca flour/starch (or corn starch if not paleo),  onion, garlic, and salt in a small bowl.
  5. Toss sweet potatoes with oil and then seasoning.  (If you use more oil they will take longer to bake but will be crispier.) I used 1T, but you can use up to 1/4 cup.   
  6. Spread evenly across baking sheet (best to make in two batches, so you don't have to play the oven shuffle game).  Bake for 15-20 minutes, turning them halfway through.  OPTIONAL:  Broil for 1-2 minutes for extra crispiness before they leave the oven, just make sure not to burn them!!!! Enjoy the first batch while the second one goes in.
  7. SEE NOTES!  

Recipe Notes

Put the pan on lower rack or middle rack.  The top rack likely will not get crispy because it isn't close enough to the heat!  

Nutrition Facts vary depending on how much oil you use.
