Healthy and Easy Oven Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Posted by

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!

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Ingredients

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

Instructions

0.  Preheat oven to 375 °F.

1.  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.

6.  Pop it in the oven for about 30 minutes.  I say about because different ovens probably will vary.  For me it took 35, but I heard others making it in 20 mins.  I would just start checking it at 20 every couple mins to make sure it doesn’t all burn.

7.  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.
