How to Make Paleo Sweet Potato Fries
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line an edged baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine fries, avocado oil, arrowroot flour, salt, and pepper.
3. Place the fries one by one onto the prepared sheet without overlap. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until crisp. (Optional: flip halfway through).
How to Store Paleo Sweet Potato Fries
Sweet potato fries can be stored in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days for optimal freshness. When ready to eat, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until warm to the touch. Reheating in the oven will help keep the fries crisp.
Essential Equipment for Making Paleo Sweet Potato Fries
Baking Sheet – I love my baking sheets, there is plenty of room and they are easy to clean. (Especially when topped with parchment paper).

Basic Staples for Making Paleo Sweet Potato Fries
Sweet Potatoes – When possible, it is always best to source local and/or organic produce. I always peel my sweet potato fries beforehand, but if you wish to leave the peel on, make sure to scrub the skins with a vegetable brush to remove all the dirt and potential chemicals it may have come in contact with if buying unconventional produce.
Avocado Oil – I love using avocado oil when baking at high temperatures because of its high smoke point.
Arrowroot Flour – The arrowroot flour gives these fries an outer crisp for a “fry” like experience.
