  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (with the skins on and washed well)
  • 1 Tbs melted coconut oil
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside.
  • Slice the sweet potatoes into matchstick-sized pieces. First slice the ends off. Then slice the potato in half, and thinly slice lengthwise. Take those slices, and cut them again lengthwise into several matchsticks.
  • Place the sliced sweet potatoes in a bowl with melted coconut oil, salt, pepper, and other seasonings.
  • Toss the ingredients together with your hands several times, until all the seasonings are evenly dispersed.
  • Transfer the seasoned sweet potatoes into the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then flip with a spatula. Bake another 8-10 minutes until crispy and brown on the edges.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately
