Airfryer Roasted Sweet Potatoes - This flavorful side dish is Whole30, Paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free. It can be made in the oven or airfryer and are delicious and 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.

  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • AIRFRYER MODIFICATION: Follow all the steps to chop and coat the potatoes. Airfry for 15 minutes at 375 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!

    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.

    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!

    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!
