Sweet Potato Fries are so delicious, and are made healthier by being baked, instead of fried!

These are different than my usual sweet potato fries, as I made them with ZERO oil!

All I did was lightly spray a foil-lined sheet pan with non-stick spray, then laid a sweet potato cut into fries on top.

I seasoned them with garlic salt and pepper then tossed to coat.

I baked them for 10 minutes at 425 degrees, then brought the oven rack up to the top and broiled for ~2 minutes on one side, then flipped and broiled for 2 minutes on the other. Just until they were dark brown and crispy.

Umm, I could NOT tell the difference between these fries and the ones I usually toss with a teaspoon or two of oil before baking. Awesome!
