Sweet Potato Fries

Recipe adapted from The Clothes Make the Girl

2 large sweet potatoes
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
Sea Salt
1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper, then place a wire rack on top of the parchment.
2. Wash the sweet potatoes and scrub the skins to remove dirt, but don’t peel them. Poke each potato a few times with a fork, then loosely wrap each still-wet-from-the-washing potato in a paper towel and place in the microwave. Nuke for 5 minutes or so until they are tender.
3. Once the potatoes have cooled enough to handle, cut them into strips that are 1/8 to 1/4 inch wide. You want them pretty thin. I cut my strips in half, so they will be crispier.
4. Pour fries in a bowl and pour melted coconut oil over them (1 1/2 -2 T coconut oil) Toss until well coated
5. Place on wire wrack, season with salt, and bake in oven for 15 minutes. Take them out and coat them with the remaining coconut oil (1/2-1 T). Return to oven for an additional 10-15 minutes (checking on them every 5 min to make sure they do not burn!!!)
6. Remove from oven and sprinkle with more salt if you desire, and enjoy!!
