This makes perfect sweet potato fries because the light arrowroot starch coating on them makes them hold the seasoning and helps keep them from burning. Before I started making sweet potato fries like this, I would always burn half my fries. But I love how just adding a simple coating gives them a crunchy/chewy texture that is addicting!
It is not super tricky to have a paleo sweet potato fries recipe but the other tricky part is having a condiment or dressing to dip them in. So the goal with this recipe is to enjoy eating them alone and not have to put any kind of sauce on them. They are great by themselves! So we hope that you try our recipe and let us know what you think about it!
