Air Fryer Baked Sweet Potato

After cooking sweet potato fries in the air fryer, I just had to try cooking a whole sweet potato in the Air Fryer XL.  Sweet potatoes are very delicious when baked and eaten with butter and a little salt and pepper.

It’s even better eaten as a healthy dessert with a little butter and cinnamon.  The sweet potato didn’t take as long to cook in the air fryer as it does in a conventional oven and was just as good cooked in the air fryer.

The only difference is, that I didn’t have to wait 10 minutes for the oven to pre-heat and 45 minutes for the sweet potato to bake in the oven.
