These amazing air fryer sweet potatoes are the perfect healthy side dish! They only require 3 ingredients and they are so easy to make right in the air fryer. With this recipe you will get perfectly fluffy and flavourful baked sweet potatoes every, single time!


  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 23 teaspoons  olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Scrub the potatoes then poke them all over with a fork for venting.
  2. Rub each potato with olive oil and season each with some salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F, if necessary. Place the sweet potatoes into the air fryer and cook them for 20-25 minutes. After 25 minutes, flip them over and cook them for 20-25 more minutes until a fork can easily pierce them and they are nice and soft.
  4. Remove, slice open and top with butter and salt. See more topping suggestions in the post.


  1. Do I need to poke holes in the potatoes before cooking? Yes you do to allow the steam to vent when they are cooking.  
  2. Medium size sweet potatoes work best in this recipe. 
  3. Check the potatoes close to the end of the cooking time to make adjustments if needed. 
  4. You can store cooked sweet potatoes after they have fully cooled in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
