  • Air Fryer


  • 4 medium-sized sweet potatoes scrubbed, rinsed and dried with paper towels
  • 3-4 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper (optional)


  • Pierce sweet potatoes several times with a small knife or tines of a fork.
  • Drizzle olive oil over clean sweet potatoes and rub into potatoes with your hands to coat.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper (if using). Place sweet potatoes on air fryer rack or basket, making sure to leave some space between them and not stacking them.
  • Cook at 390 degrees for 40-50 minutes (depending on the size of your sweet potatoes), flipping over halfway through the cook time.


For best results, use sweet potatoes that are similar in size for even baking.


  • Complete steps 1-3 as directed.
  • Bake at 425 F degrees for 45-50 minutes on a foil-lined baking sheet.
