Easy Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

We love air fryer sweet potato fries for so many reasons. First of all, cooking them in the air fryer is so much healthier. Second of all, they don’t have all the calories from being deep fried. And finally, they’re super easy to make in the air fryer! All it takes it some olive oil, salt, pepper and sweet potatoes. Normally, sweet potatoes rarely every “crisp”, so we like to cook them until they are dark for maximum flavor. Add some of your favorite dip and you have a wonderful snack or side dish!
