Sweet potatoes are a family favorite of ours, and I’m pretty sure my kids favorite way to eat them is in the air fryer.

By adding the sweet potatoes to the air fryer it gives them the crunch like a french fry and they are so savory and delicious!

Do you have to peel sweet potatoes?

This is a personal preference. You can eat the skin of a potato but I personally peel the sweet potatoes for this recipe. If you leave the skin on be sure to wash and clean the outside of the sweet potato well with a scrubbing brush.

Air fryer sweet potatoes make a great side dish for many entrees such as:

  • Ham
  • Scrambled eggs

They would also make a great side dish with my BBQ Meatballs!

Can I prepare sweet potatoes ahead of time?

Yes! You can prepare sweet potatoes ahead of time by peeling, dicing and storing them in the fridge until you are ready to cook them. Store them in water so they don’t get too hard for 1-2 days.

However you serve them, I hope you enjoy them!

Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:20 minutes


  • 3 sweet potatoes (approx 4 cups)
  • 1 TBS olive oil


  • Wash and peel sweet potatoes.
  • Dice sweet potatoes and pour into a bowl.
  • Coat with olive oil and place in air fryer.
  • Cook on 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Open air fryer after 10 minutes and shake potatoes to allow them to cook evenly.


-You can use avocado oil in place of olive oil if you prefer.
-Add or subtract time based on your preferences.  I like mine crispy so I prefer to cook them longer.  If you add time add in 2 minute increments so potatoes don’t burn.
