Coconutty Sweet Potato Fries

Sure feels like Spring here in Minne.


According to, we are expected to get a few [a few, a few, a few] inches of snow tonight.

In that case…here’s a fall inspired recipe!

Coconutty Sweet Potato Fries

-1 large sweet potato
-1/2 tsp coconut oil
-1/4 tsp cinnamon
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp shredded coconut

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and cover a baking sheet with tin foil.

2. Wash a large sweet potato and then slice into 1/4 inch thick cubes.

3. Coat taters with coconut oil using a brush (I used a paintbrush). Then, sprinkle on cinnamon, salt, and shredded coconut.

4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until your fries begin to brown. Serve with ketchup. nom nom nom.

Normally I use olive oil when I make these guys, but Tropical Traditions sent me a humongous jar of Coconut Oil to try!

I think I need to start using this stuff more often? The nutty flavor of the coconut oil paired perfectly with my sweet potato fries! It was a great twist to a classic recipe! Check out this page for some FAQ about Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil.
What I like most about this product is that it is USDA Certified Organic, it is hand-made, it is Non-GMO, and it is virgin! I didn’t know this, but in order for coconut oil to be considered “virgin,” it needs to be made from fresh coconut. Often times, coconut is refined and only contains the aroma of coconuts. Interesting, eh?
When I first saw this stuff I was a bit confused because to be honest, it resembled lard…Turns out, you are suppose to melt it before using because it solidifies at room temperature! Derrrrrr.

Just an FYI, I definitely didn’t end up using that much of the oil. I just poured what I didn’t use it back into the jar for later! No wasting in this casa!

Alright, enough procrastinating! Time to start my final Spanish Paper: An analysis of “La Casa de Bernarda Alba.” yummy. I love college.

Is it Fall in your neck of the woods too?

What is your favorite kind of oil to cook with?
