Gather all of your ingredients for your air fryer sweet potatoes to ensure the recipe turns out great.
Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees.
Next, add your cleaned sweet potatoes onto a cutting board and chop into 2-inch cubes.
In a large bowl, add maple syrup, cinnamon, and brown sugar to a bowl along with seasonings.
Toss the air fryer sweet potato cubes into the mixture and generously mix.
Lightly spray your air fryer basket with nonstick spray. Add diced sweet potatoes in air fryer in a single layer to the air fryer basket, ensuring not to overcrowd.
Allow them to cook for 8-10 minutes. After, open the air fryer and use a fork to poke one. If the fork easily pierces the sweet potatoes, they are done. If not, cook for another 4-5 minutes.
There you have it, a delicious, healthy side dish.
You can try to use some of your favorite seasonings. I kept it simple with easy-to-access ingredients. You can shake things up and add seasonings like Italian seasoning, chili powder, cayenne pepper, onion powder, smoked paprika, and black pepper.
You will only need an air fryer, cooking utensils, and an airtight container for storage later.
This will remove that starchy-like consistency on potatoes, along with tenderizing them. You can skip this step, but it helps to cook the potatoes faster.
