Crunchy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

April 10, 2020

If you’re baking sweet potato and not using this recipe, stop. This is by far the best way to eat them, no argument there.

Recipe calls for using rice flour, i used corn flour and it tasted much better than rice flour. Rice flour has a denser taste that ruined my potatoes.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

The ONLY way you should be eating your sweet potato
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 40 mins
Course Side Dish


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tbsp corn flour recipe asks for rice flour but doesn’t taste as good
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 kg sweet potato cut into thin fries around 2 large


  • Preheat your oven to 200C
  • Put the oil on a non stick pan or on a baking sheet, after around 7-8 mins of preheating your oven pop the pan into the oven until the oil is hot but not burning
  • Whisk the egg whites until stiff (think stiff peaks for meringue) you can do it by hand but takes time
  • Fold in the corn flour and spices. Add the sweet potatoes and coat well with your hands
  • Take the pan out of the oven, place the sweet potatoes on it and bake for 15 min or until the bottom is crispy
  • Remove the pan, shake them so they flip and bake for another 7-10 min until evenly crispy


Do not overcrowd your pan, if you have a small one make them in batches or else you’ll end up steaming them instead of crisping them
