These are like sweet potato fries, but bigger and better. They’re roasted with a just-right amount of olive oil.



  • 3 lb sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1/3 cup Chopped Pecans


1 Heat the oven to 425°F. Scrub the sweet potatoes and trim thickened ends, keeping on the peel. Cut into long extra-thick strips, about 48 total strips.
2 In a large bowl, stir together the oil, cinnamon, cayenne, and salt. Add the sweet potato strips and toss to fully coat.
3 Arrange the sweet potatoes in a single layer on two unbleached parchment paper-lined large baking sheets. Roast until just browned, about 30 minutes, rotating plans halfway through roasting.
4 Flip over each sweet potato strip, lightly brush with the maple syrup, and sprinkle with the pecans. Roast until the sweet potato frites are richly browned, about 8 more minutes, and serve. Enjoy with a fork.
