Baked sweet potato and carrot fries recipe

Wishful Chef is about cooking simple and healthy dishes. A fusion of different cuisines, my recipes are inspired by family, travels & cooking idols.

A healthy snack you won't feel guilty about!

One of my favorite snacks is french fries and I don't know anyone who doesn't like them. A healthy alternative is to bake them in the oven, which also eliminates the oily mess from frying.
A healthy snack you won't feel guilty about!

I used a mix of two healthy vegetables, sweet potatoes and carrots, which are flavorful and packed with vitamins and minerals. They may not be as crispy as traditional fries, but they're so much better for you. Your family won't even know they're eating something healthy!

Serve these oven-baked fries with your favorite condiment

These carrot and sweet potato fries are crisp on the outside and soft and sweet on the inside. You can easily alter the recipe to your taste, so feel free to add other spices like cayenne pepper or garlic.
