A sweet way to eat vegetables for dessert – cinnamon sugar sweet potato fries with vanilla glaze!



For the sweet potato fries:

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

For the vanilla glaze:

  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almondmilk
  • splash of vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Cut sweet potatoes into relatively the same size, approximately 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Place fries in a large ziploc bag and toss with cornstarch. Once coated, pour in melted coconut oil and toss to evenly coat the fries. Add in almost all of the cinnamon sugar mixture and toss to coat the fries.
  5. Place fries on silpat lined baking sheet making sure that the fries are not touching. (I needed to use two baking sheets.)
  6. Bake for 30 minutes total, flipping the fries over halfway through.
  7. As the fries are roasting, make the vanilla glaze. Mix the powdered sugar, almondmilk, and vanilla together until smooth. If the glaze is too thin, add a little more powdered sugar. If it is too thick, add in a splash more milk. Continue this until it reaches your desired consistency.
  8. After the fries are done roasting, sprinkle the excess cinnamon sugar and drizzle the vanilla glaze over the top.
