Figure Friendly French Fries

You had to know that I've been trying to make this happen forever!! I LOVE French Fries, except they usually leave me feeling bloated and uncomfortable. In my effort to make my  healthy lifestyle easier...and yours, I developed the following: Figure Friendly French Fries.

I bought one regular potato and two sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes have more vitamins and minerals in them so they ARE healthier. But I wasn't willing to have no classic fries in the batch :)

First step is to cut the french fries how you want! Personally, I don't have a special tool for it, so I cut the potatoes into quarters, then slid them through my mandolin (not the musical instrument, the kitchen utensil :) They ended up shaped like steak fries, which was cool with me.

After cutting them, SOAK THEM IN COLD WATER for at least 1 hour. This helps leech out some of the starch from the potatoes. They then bake up crispier than they would if you didn't do this. **I'd say this is the most important step**

Next, spray a pan with baking spray! I used Coconut Oil Spray....

The fries work well with the kind above, or an OLIVE OIL spray. Try not to just use the regular stuff. They won't get as crispy as possible if you do!

After spraying the pan, lay down the fries in a single layer. You can't pile them on top of each other! Then, spray the top layer. Sprinkle on sea salt. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes. FLIP. Bake 20 more minutes until you're satisfied with the crispy :)

Let me know if you try them and if you enjoy them!
