  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne

To begin, you’ll need two fat, round sweet potatoes. Look for the biggest ones with the most even girth. Peel the skin from both sweet potatoes. Slice the tip ends from the sweet potato, leaving the thickest part of the middle. Use a sharp knife to cut a small “V” shape in the center of the sweet potato. Slice the sweet potato into 1/8″ thin slices. Use a small, sharp knife to “carve” jack-o-lantern faces into each sweet potato slice. coconut oil and spices in plastic bag. Place the sweet potato fries on a cookie sheet and bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 20-22 minutes, or until barely golden brown around the edges. Serve and Enjoy!
