Peanut Butter Crusted Sweet Potato Fries

If ever you’re sitting around bored and want to look at some things that’ll make you hungry, go over to the Food Whore website.  There are so many yummy, sinful treats on there!  Best part is you can get the recipe for them!  I saw peanut butter crusted sweet potato fries the other day and immediately bookmarked it.  I love peanut butter, and the picture just looked pretty great.

These were absolutely delicious, the only thing I didn’t like is that they didn’t get crispy.  Maybe I cut the potatoes too big.  Even though they weren’t crisp, they were good.  I managed to restrain myself at one serving so I wouldn’t completely blow my calories (only 203 calories in a serving!) and the hubby ate the rest.  He doesn’t worry about calories though 🙂  I’ll definitely be trying these again, and cutting them smaller to get them crispy.  Any other suggestions for that?

Peanut Butter Crusted Sweet Potato Fries
Recipe from:  Fake Ginger
Serves 4

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into thin fry-like strips
3 tbsp chunky peanut butter
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt – fine grain (I don’t have fine grain so I smushed up some regular one)


Preheat oven to 400 degress.

In a medium bowl, mix peanut butter, oil and salt.  Toss sweet potato fries with the mixture until fully coated.  Line up on baking sheet covered with aluminum foil and cook for twenty minutes.  Flip and bake another 10-20 minutes until crisp.

(go look at the pictures on Fake Ginger, hers are better than mine!)
