I’m potato obsessed! I could eat potatoes with every meal if that was a healthy option just to eat potatoes, ALL DAY EVERYDAY!
My husband and our daughter also share a love for potatoes, so we have our fair share of them throughout the week. We love our Air Fryer Baked Potato, but this Air Fryer Baked Sweet Potato recipe is just as good!
The inside becomes almost creamy, and it’s naturally sweet. I just sprinkle a little bit of salt on my baked sweet potato, and I’m ready to dig in! For a special treat, we like to put a bit of butter and parsley too. My husband will even sprinkle a little maple syrup or honey onto his.
An air fryer helps you bake a sweet potato without much effort.
As soon as you cut it open it is already easy enough to eat with your fork or even a spoon. I like to give it a little mash just so that the salt can get into more of the potato. Oh man, so good!
Look at these sweet beauties ready to be turned into the best baked sweet potato you’ll ever eat!

Avalon Bay AirFryer with Rapid Air Circulation Technology, Large 3.2L Capacity, Temperature up to 400 Degrees, Oil-Less Healthy Air Fryer, Black, AB-Airfryer100BWhy should you get an air fryer?
If you want really crispy stuff without frying this air fryer is excellent! Fries are crispy, our potatoes are crispy on the outside and perfectly fluffy on the inside.
I will say that this is definitely NOT a deep fryer. Think of it more like a convection oven. You can even bake in your air fryer! 🙂
At first, I used it thinking I could fry anything that I would typically fry like zeppoles but in all honesty, I didn’t like it because I was approaching it the wrong way. I was trying to make deep fried desserts, and the Air Fryer isn’t made to do that.
It helps make some fried foods that you’d usually enjoy a much healthier option by using an air oven.
You can cook without any added oil, and it’s oil free cooking unless you’re making our baked potatoes. We think the oil really helps the skin crisp up so we like to use just a little.
We love sweet potatoes and this Air Fryer Baked Sweet Potato recipe is a KEEPER!

Check out the Videos on You tube. They are very good, I’ve learned a lot looking at them. I love my air fryer, it’s just me, so I bought the Dash it’s a smaller version.
Can you tell me what brand of Air Fryer you have pictured? What is the size / capacity?
Hi Mary! I currently have the Avalon Bay Air Fryer which is a 3.7qt. It’s on the smaller side and we’re currently looking into getting a bigger one. It was perfect for our family of 3 when my daughter was younger, but now that she’s eating more we’re looking to upgrade.
Just tried this recipe last night. I had smaller potatoes so baked one small one for less time, maybe 24 minutes? It was so wonderfully dreamily soft inside and the skin tasted excellent too. Truly a perfect sweet potato!! Thx!!!!!
So glad you enjoyed!
I just bought an air fryer. I tried to make fresh french fries and fresh sweet potato fries, followed the recipe in booklet that came with machine. All came out dry and tasteless. what did I do wrong.?
So sorry that happened to you! We don’t have any air fryer french fries on the site yet. We’re going to be sharing FLAVORFUL air fryer french fry recipes next week – stay tuned! 🙂
Excellent recipe! I was a little skeptica because halfway through cooking time they were still pretty hard but they were perfection after 35-40mins. Also, halfway through I put some foil over the top as they were getting brown. T
So glad you enjoyed! Great tip with the foil, some air fryers do get pretty hot and can brown things a bit more than others. 🙂
Thank you for this simple, yet amazing recipe: whole food, plant based yumminess!!!!
You’re so welcome!! 😀
Great Sweet Potato! This was so easy and delicious! My family loved it as much as I did.
Thank you! So glad you and your family enjoyed!! 😀
I did this and my sweet potatoes were awesome!!!!
Yay! So glad you enjoyed 😀
These were delicious and easy to prepare. Will definitely cook the sweet potatoes this way in the future.
I’ve made this recipe over and over. It’s perfect. Thank you!
Ahh, thank you!! And you’re so welcome! Glad you love it just as much as we too!
I tried this recipe for 1 sweet potato using my Gourmia air fryer. I was working so didn’t check on it and it burnt up the outside while the inside was still very firm. I’m not sure how to adjust this for my air fryer for next time. Any advice would be appreciated.
How large was your sweet potato? As you can see ours aren’t too large. Whenever they’re REALLY big I’ll cut them down a bit so they will cook quicker. 🙂
Hi Courtney, I live in Sydney – Australia and just bought an Air-Fryer yesterday. I made “Baked Sweet Potato” last night just to test out my new fryer. Boy! was it ever tasty, When served up we drizzled it with quite a bit of butter then sprinkled it with cinnamon. Absolutely YUMMO! Thank you for my first introduction to Air-Fry cooking.
We are so glad you enjoyed it! What a delicious way to serve it up, yum! 😀
Do I use the bake setting or air fryer setting?
Air fry setting 🙂
