Cinnamon Sugar Sweet Potato Fries

Posted on

I love fries. Who doesn’t? I found this recipe in an old Weight Watchers magazine.

1 1/2 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

2 sweet potatoes (1 lb each)

1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 425. Line large rimmed baking sheet with silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Combine sugar and cinnamon in small bowl; set aside.

Peel potatoes and cut lengthwise into 1/2 inch thick slices; cut each slice into 1/2 inch thick sticks (you should have 48 fries). Spread fries on prepared pan, making sure they do not touch or overlap. Spray with nonstick spray and sprinkle with salt.

Bake 20 minutes. Remove pan from oven; spray fries with nonstick spray and sprinkle with half of the sugar mixture. Flip fries and spray with nonstick spray and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Bake 10 minutes longer. Remove from ove, toss well and bake until brown and tender, about 5 more minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool several minutes before serving.

I’m excited to be back on the Weight Watchers wagon! I fell off pretty hard over the summer. We weren’t having the program at work. I tried doing it on my own, but I really needed my cheerleaders. I have them. 🙂 We had over 40 people sign up at work and am beyond happy that I have so many people working toward a common goal with me.

They’re such an eclectic group. I know we are going to do wonderfully. I am trying to keep us all motivated. I am the liaison between Weight Watchers and my workplace. I also send out emails to the group throughout the week just to keep them going. I am also running a facebook page for them.

I’m going to be busy but it is so positive! Wish us luck!
