GF Fast Food Series: Cinnamon Sweet-Potato Sticks
Cinnamon Sweet-Potato Sticks
Same basic idea as the Oven-Baked Potato Fries! These sweet sticks are so yummy that we often eat them as dessert.
2 big sweet potatoes (yams work, but not quite as well)
1 tsp rice flour
a dash of salt
2 Tbsp. light olive oil
2 Tbsp. butter (or coconut oil)
(to sprinkle on after baking)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp. sugar
Evenly pour the oil onto a large baking sheet, lined with foil.
Thinly slice sweet potatoes into wedge or 'fry' shapes.
Toss the sweet potato pieces with the salt and rice flour (either in a freezer bag or on the cutting board).
Place sweet potatoes on the oiled pan and place the pan in the oven at 400F--about 6-8 inches under the broiler.
When the oven is preheated, switch to BROIL and check every few minutes to see if you need to turn them with a spatula. Don't let them get too dark before turning. Bake/Broiled until they reach your desired doneness--usually a nice golden brown.
When they're done, sprinkle them lightly with the cinnamon and sugar. Serves 4 adults.
