  • 2 medium-large sweet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Rub the sweet potatoes with olive oil
  • Place the sweet potatoes in the air fryer. Cook for 40 minutes on 400 degrees.
  • Remove the sweet potatoes from the air fryer and allow them to cool.
  • Slice them open and load 1 teaspoon of butter and honey and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon into each.
  • Cooking time may vary because every air fryer brand is different. You can poke the potatoes with a knife to test if they are done. The inside of the sweet potato should be soft.



Cook time will vary based on your air fryer brand and how soft you want your potatoes.
