These fries can be eaten with fingers or a fork, but however you consume them, know that they are addictive. They make a perfect accompaniment to sandwiches and burgers and have a hint of sweetness which makes them almost seem dessert like in quality. To make clean up easier, make sure you line your baking sheet with foil and remove fries from baking sheet as quickly as possible after cooking – the syrup and coconut oil combine to make a glaze and that can become difficult to clean up.
