Sweet potato fries – gluten free, grain free, and full of flavor!

I wanted  an alternative to regular potatoes that the whole family would enjoy and that would be good for us.  I had a few sweet potatoes so decided to attempt to make some ‘fries’ for dinner tonight.  Usually before I try something new, I will at least google a similar recipe for some ideas, but today I was under a bit of time pressure, so I just threw this together without much planning.

Ingredients:

Organic sweet potatoes

Almond flour

Coconut oil

Garlic powder

Onion powder

Cumin

Sea salt

Milk (I used coconut milk, but any dairy or non-dairy milk will work)

Directions:

Peel and slice sweet potatoes into ‘fry’ shaped slices.  Generously grease a cookie sheet with coconut oil.

In a bowl, put a ratio of 1 cup almond flour, 1.5 tsp of garlic powder, 1.5 tsp onion powder, and a sprinkle of cumin.  Depending on how many sweet potato fries you are making you may need more or less of this.  I filled one full cookie sheet using the above amounts.

Pour some milk into another bowl.  Dip the fries into the milk and then dredge through the almond flour mixture and place on a cookie sheet until all ‘fries’ are on the cookie sheet.

Place into the oven at 375F and bake until the almond flour ‘crust’ starts to brown and the sweet potatoes begin to look slightly wilted.

Serve and enjoy.  I made a garlic aioli using mayo, pureed garlic and some hot sauce for dipping.  YUM.img_7479
