Sweet Potato Almond Butter Fries

The other day we were thinking about what to make for a snack and Rem commented that something with sweet potatoes and almond butter (some of our favorite foods) would be good.  He quickly found a recipe for sweet potato almond butter fries and we made them immediately.  They were addicting and crazy good, the perfect combination of sweet and salty.  We have already made them 3 times in the past 2 weeks... yeh, they're that yummy.  We found the recipe at The Paleo Project, which has a lot of other great paleo recipes as well.  

We took these to a party where they were enjoyed by everyone!  They're a little messy to make but don't take too much time at all.  I see many more batches of these sweet potato fries in our future...

Before baking.

Baked and ready to serve!

Sweet Potato Almond Butter Fries

Originally from The Paleo Project

2 large sweet potatoes, washed and cut into 1/4 in thick "fries"
2-3 T coconut oil
1/4 c almond butter (we used Trader Joe's raw, unsalted crunchy almond butter)
coarse salt (sea salt or kosher salt)

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut potatoes and then toss with melted coconut oil.  Next, coat the potatoes in almond butter.  You will need to use your hands and it will get messy... just go with it.  Place potatoes onto parchment lined baking sheets and sprinkle liberally with coarse salt.  Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until potatoes begin to brown and get a bit crispy.  Enjoy!  Try not to eat them all in one sitting!
