Sweet Potato Cubes in an Air Fryer

A delightful and healthy snack or side dish, these sweet potato cubes are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Using an air fryer not only reduces the amount of oil needed but also ensures an even cook, making them a perfect guilt-free indulgence.

Benefits of Sweet Potatoes:

Sweet potatoes are not just delicious, but they're also packed with numerous health benefits. They are a rich source of fiber, which aids in digestion and promotes a healthy gut. Additionally, they are high in vitamins and minerals, particularly vitamin A, which is essential for good vision, skin health, and a robust immune system.

The antioxidants in sweet potatoes, such as beta-carotene, help combat free radicals in the body, potentially reducing the risk of chronic diseases. Moreover, their natural sweetness can satisfy sugar cravings, making them an excellent choice for those looking to cut back on sugary snacks.


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika or cinnamon for a flavor twist


  1. Begin by preheating your air fryer to 380°F (190°C).

  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss the sweet potato cubes with olive oil, ensuring they are evenly coated.

  3. Sprinkle the salt, pepper, and any optional seasonings over the sweet potato cubes and toss again to distribute the seasonings.

  4. Place the seasoned sweet potato cubes in a single layer in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are not overcrowded.

  5. Cook for 10-12 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through to ensure even cooking.

  6. Check for desired crispiness. If you prefer them crispier, cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

  7. Once done, remove from the air fryer and serve immediately. They pair wonderfully with a dipping sauce of your choice or can be enjoyed on their own.

Pro Tips:

  • Ensure the sweet potato cubes are of uniform size for even cooking.

  • If you don't have an air fryer, these cubes can also be roasted in a conventional oven at 425°F (220°C) for 20-25 minutes, turning halfway through.

  • Sweet potato cubes can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the air fryer for a few minutes to regain crispiness.

Enjoy your crispy, delicious sweet potato cubes straight from the air fryer!
