The other day I was shopping for some healthy snacks and I stumbled across some sweet potato chips.  They were not bad, but it got me thinking.  How hard would it be to make this myself?  It probably wouldn’t be hard AND it would probably cut out a lot of unhealthy stuff that they might add to the store bought bag of chips, right?  Well, I was right!  Here’s how I made these easy and healthy Oven Baked Sweet Potato Chips!

Sweet Potato Health Benefits

A lot of people don’t realize just how healthy sweet potatoes are, but they are an amazing source of of fiber, vitamins, and minerals that your body needs. Sweet potatoes contain Vitamin A, C, B6, Manganese and Potassium as a start.

Here’s some good stuff to note:

  • Immune Booster – Sweet potatoes are high in an antioxidant known as beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A once consumed. This vitamin is essential for ensuring the normal function of your immune system and organs.
  • Vision Health – Beta-carotene is also incredible for vision health! Beta-carotene is converted to vitamin A in your body (as mentioned above) and used to form light-detecting receptors in your eyes. Purple sweet potatoes are even better than other sweet potatoes!
  • Gut Health – Sweet potatoes also is great for your gut health as it contain fiber and antioxidants that promote the growth of good gut bacteria.

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato, cleaned
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt, as desired
  • 2 tsp of ground cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 °F. While oven is heating up, slice sweet potatoes really thin.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, mix olive oil, salt, and cinnamon together.
  3. Throw your sliced sweet potatoes in to the bowl and mix it all together well.
  4. Place aluminum foil over a baking sheet (I guess this is optional, but I do this so that they don’t stick to the pan).
  5. Place sweet potato slices on baking sheet side by side. Make sure it doesn’t overlap.
  6. Pop it in the oven for about 20 minutes.  I say about because different ovens probably will vary.  I would just start checking it at 15 every couple mins to make sure it doesn’t all burn.

Remove from oven and let it cool off before serving!

  1. These were delicious! Thank you for sharing. I will definitely make these again. BTW.. I did use the 2tsp of cinnamon and about 3/4tsp. salt. It still maintained a savory taste, even with the cinnamon. It was cool how the natural flavors of the sweet potato melded with spices. Also, mine took about 30 or so minutes. Again, thanks! 🙂

  2. These were divine! Thank you! Such a great idea! Next time I’ll have to make a bigger batch so I can find out if they are still crispy the next day.
