Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I have not made this recipe because of the sodium content in it... Also, I wonder if you could use pam spray instead of the oil...What other spices can you use instead of cinnamon.... I am allergic to it... I would make it if not for these issues... Submitted by:

Sweet Potatoes are usually good without anything except spray on butter, if you have good potatoes. Otherwisethe sweetner and spices may be needed. I used a slight sprinkle of sea salt. Submitted by:

I'd make this! But not with the salt or splenda. Just sprinkle some cinnamon and nutmeg on the fries. I'd also cook them on a wire rack -- let any excess oil drain away. Submitted by:

Coach SP_STEPF-Stepfanie's roast veggie recipe w/twist is- 375F (15min a side) use 2 cooky sheets (brush w/olive oil) lay 1/4 inch slice veggies on pan-brush w/oil- sprinkle w/garlic powder & black pepper. Did NOT use salt, sugar, cinnamon, so thought sweet potatoes would taste ick, but YUM-YUM!! Submitted by:

I don't use artificial sweeteners or any other man-made ingredients. Use a real sweetener (brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, stevia, etc) instead or nothing since sweet potatoes are...sweet! We need to respect our bodies and and keep most of the food we consume as "close to the farm" as possible. Submitted by:

When I put this in the recipe calculator, I got fewer calories (about 94) and less sodium (about 2000) - not sure why. That's still a lot of sodium I can't have, so I'm going to try it with little or no salt. Submitted by:

Very good. I usually make mine with the salt and chili pepper and duh, didn't think of cinnamon. I left out the salt and splenda by accident - so caught up in thinking "why didn't I think of cinnamon" and they were still really good. May try it next time with splenda but didn't miss it this time . Submitted by:

I have been making baked sweet potato fries for years, but I add crushed fresh garlic and/or garlic salt, chili powder, cumin, pepper in a ziploc bag with the olive oil, shake up to thoroughly coat the pieces, and then bake. I also have used "Caribbean Jerk" seasoning instead of the other spices. Submitted by:

I make my sweet potato fries by just spraying them with EVoo spray and sprinkling them with garlic powder and whatever spices and/or hebs I'm in the mood for that day. I'd never add so much salt tho - wouldn't be good for my husband especially and any of us in general. Submitted by:
