  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 TBS butter
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 2 TBS chopped pecans
  • 2 TBS pure maple syrup


  • Clean the sweet potatoes under cold water with a soft bristled brush. Dry well with a paper towel. Then poke them all over with a fork.
  • Mix together the salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small bowl. Separate the seasonings in half, and mix half of them in another small bowl with the brown sugar.
  • Rub olive oil all over the outsides of the prepared sweet potatoes. Use the other half of the seasonings to rub all over the outsides of the now oiled potatoes.
  • Air fry the sweet potatoes at 385 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 to 50 minutes, or until you can stick a fork into them and they feel tender.
  • Cut the sweet potatoes open down the middle, but not all the way through. Scrape out the sweet potato in the middle, and mash it in a bowl. Or use a fork to mix it all up inside each of the sweet potatoes. (Depending how soft and mashy you want the insides)
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture evenly over the tops of each of the sweet potatoes.
  • Top each sweet potato with tiny pats of butter.
  • Return them to the air fryer and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the marshmallows over the top of each of the sweet potatoes, and air fry for another 2 minutes, or until the marshmallows are lightly toasted.
  • Remove from the air fyer and top each with chopped pecans, and a drizzle of maple syrup.
  • Serve hot.
