  • 1.5 pounds sweet potato cubes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1.5 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1.5 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  • In a large bowl, add your sweet potato cubes. Coat with avocado oil, then add in seasonings and mix until potatoes are fully coated.
  • Preheat air fryer to 400°F. In a single layer, add sweet potato cubes to the prepared air fryer trays or basket. Air fry for 13-17 minutes, switching the trays or tossing the sweet potatoes halfway through to make sure everything is cooking evenly.
  • Adjust seasonings to taste, garnish with parsley and flakey sea salt if desired, and enjoy!
  • Store in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days.


  • How To Make These Air Fryer Roasted Sweet Potatoes in the Oven:
    The oven temperature should be set to 425°F.  Add parchment paper to the baking sheet for maximum crispiness and easy clean up. Bake for 45-50 minutes, tossing every 15-20 minutes, to ensure all sides get crispy. That’s it! Enjoy!
  • Season to taste, our seasoning blend is pretty multiple purpose, but it does have a little kick. If you want a more neutral flavor profile, scale back on all of the seasonings except for salt and pepper. Keep in mind you will need about 1 teaspoon of kosher salt per every one pound of sweet potatoes, and roughly 1.5-2 teaspoons of seasoning for well seasoned potatoes. 
  • Depending on your air fryer, you may or may not need to grease your air fryer basket or trays, or line with parchment paper. Our trays are non-stick, so we often don't need to do anything extra.
