Baked Sweet Potato Chips

IMG_20171129_073428116Sweet Potatoes, yummy! Baked, casseroles, potato chips, you name it they are good and good for you.  Sweet Potatoes have a lower glycemic index than your usual white potatoes meaning that they don’t raise your blood sugar as fast.  Just another reason to add more sweet potatoes to your diet!  The purple sweet potatoes add even more appeal.  They are not quite as sweet and a little more starchy making great chips.


2-3 medium sized sweet potatoes

Coconut oil or oil of your choice

Sea salt

How do I make them:

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.

Scrub your potatoes and cut off the ends and any blemishes

Slice your potatoes super thin, using a mandolin works great or just a sharp knife

It is important to keep your slices as uniform as possible so that they cook evenly

Toss the potatoes in a small amount of oil (you want them glossy but not dripping with oil) or if you prefer spray with a cooking spray

Spread out on a baking sheet making sure they aren’t touching

Sprinkle lightly with salt

Bake in a 325 degree preheated oven

Bake 15-20 minutes until starting to crisp

Remove as soon as you see any browning starting

Watch carefully toward the end of cooking time to be sure they don’t burn.
