Step 3 

In a large bowl, toss the sweet potato strips with olive oil. You want to coat them evenly, but you don't want them to be dripping with oil.

Step 4 

Season the sweet potato fries with your desired spices. A simple combination of salt, pepper, and garlic powder works well, but you can get creative with seasonings like paprika, chili powder, or rosemary.

Step 5 

Arrange the seasoned sweet potato fries in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, making sure they aren't touching or crowded. This allows them to crisp up nicely in the oven.

Bake the sweet potato fries in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, flipping them halfway through. Keep an eye on them towards the end of the cooking time to prevent burning.
