Crispy on the outside and tender and fluffy on the inside, these cubed air fryer sweet potatoes are delicious any time of day!
Plan to make more than you need because if you're anything like me, you'll be snacking on these tasty little bites of sweet potatoes before they hit a serving bowl.
Sweet potatoes are great any time of day. I particularly like to use sweet potatoes as a side dish next to steaks, pork or chicken. They go well in salads, wraps, burritos and tacos too.
And, sweet potatoes are also great for breakfast!
I know, you might not immediately think of roasted sweet potatoes when you think breakfast but I love sweet potato cubes as part of a breakfast bowl.

Here's a quick pic of a bowl I put together using this recipe for sweet potatoes. This bowl is quinoa, sweet potato avocado, turkey sausage and spinach. High protein, good healthy fats, all the good stuff.
How long to cook sweet potatoes in the air fryer
The cook time will increase a little bit if you cut your cubes large. Because of this, I always cube my sweet potatoes small so they cook up quick.

How to cook sweet potatoes in the air fryer
Step One: Dice the sweet potatoes into cubes.
The easiest way to do this is to slice the sweet potato into long slices and then cut those slices into "fries" and then chop each "fry" shape into cubes.
I like to go on the smaller side but just know if you make them bigger, you may need to add a few more minutes to your cook time.
Step Two: Toss sweet potatoes with 1 teaspoon olive oil and spices.
Step Four: Place in air fryer basket and cook at 400 F for about 10 minutes.
Step four: Oh, wait, there isn't a step four, that is it! Enjoy!
