Whole30 Airfryer Roasted Sweet Potatoes - Gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, EASY! Airfryer or oven

Whole30, Paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, EASY! This is my husband’s favorite side dish. He literally requests it for his birthday AND Father’s Day every year. It has more flavor that your average roasted sweet potatoes, but it comes from spices you probably already having your kitchen. 5-ingredients (I don’t count salt/pepper) and easily made in your oven or airfryer. Woot!

Yes, you can try this with white potatoes if sweet potatoes just aren’t your scene, but these are really best with orange-fleshed sweet potatoes. We love them plain or dipped in my date mustard.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1.5 pounds orange-fleshed sweet potato
  • 3 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • If using oven, preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Chop potatoes into a small even chunks or cubes.
  • Toss potatoes with oil to coat.
  • In a small bowl, mix all the spices.
  • Toss potatoes with spices.
  • Bake on a parchment lined cooking sheet at 425 for 45-50 minutes, flipping halfway.
  • AIRFRYER MODIFICATION: Follow all the steps to chop and coat the potatoes. Airfry for 15 minutes at 350 degrees (stirring halfway through), then 10 minutes at 400 degrees until desired crispness (also stirring halfway through).


We love these as is or with my date mustard sauce. Great side to steak, grilled chicken, or fish!
We always double batch this recipe. They freeze great! TO FREEZE: Lay cooked potatoes in a single layer and freeze. Once frozen, store in a sealed container for up to 3 months. Fast and easy to reheat in the microwave, airfryer, or oven!

    This is delicious and flavorful. I love the basil in it.

    • Thank you! It’s an easy one with a surprising amount of flavor. Thanks for the review!

  2. Absolutely delicious. Super flavorful and easy to make with ingredients I already had. Cooked them in the air fryer and they came out with a nice crunch on the outside.
    I’ll definitely make these again, and plan to try the spice combination on white potatoes also

    As a family that eats lots of sweet potatoes, we were starting to get bored with our usual recipes. I am so grateful to have found this recipe- it is easy and SO flavorful! Even our tiny eaters love it!

    • Aw, I love that your tiny eaters love it too! It’s definitely a flavorful one that can help shake things up. Thank you!

    Sweet potatoes are my favorite and these did not disappoint! I always love finding sweet potato recipes. I also love using your date mustard dipping sauce with these.

    • Happy you loved these, thank you!

    I love this recipe!!! It looks so simple but that’s what is great about it- I always have these ingredients on hand, it is quick and SO delicious! I have a hard time not just eating all of them straight out of the air fryer!

    • Hooray! Agreed I like the seasonings are usually pantry staples for me and so happy you enjoyed them!

  6. 5 stars
    I’m a huge fan of roasted sweet potatoes so it was fun to see another favorite recipe. I typically just throw sea salt and oil on my pots so it was yummy to use the extra spices. I do wish I had an air fryer for these though!

    • These are fun and flavorful for sure! Thank you!
