Clean and cut the top and bottom sides of the sweet potatoes. Using a fork, poke holes all around the sweet potatoes. This method will cook the potatoes through and evenly.

Place the potatoes in a bowl and drizzle with some olive oil.

For the spices, sprinkle in some salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. The garlic powder is optional. You can also add the spices of your choice. Use your hands to mix the potatoes with olive oil and spices. Make sure to coat every side.

Transfer the seasoned sweet potatoes to the air fryer basket.

Cook the potatoes for 30 minutes at 400F. After 30 minutes, take a knife and poke through the potatoes to test how soft they are. Place them on a plate and cut across the middle using a knife to serve.  Squeeze the sides of each potato to let it cool more, and spread out some butter if you like.

Lastly, garnish with some cinnamon powder.
