Are sweet potato chips healthy?

The short answer? Yes! But of course that depends on how you make them. If you’re going to add a ton of sugar, then maybe not. This recipe, I make it as basic as possible and I leave it up to you if you’d like to add more stuff on it.

If you wan to to know more on the health benefits, it helps to look at the main ingredient… sweet potatoes!

A lot of people don’t realize just how healthy sweet potatoes are – 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.

Baked Sweet Potato Chips Recipe

What you need

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

How to make Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Preheat oven to 375 °F. While oven is heating up, slice sweet potatoes really thin.

In a medium mixing bowl, add sweet potatoes, and mix in olive oil, salt, and cinnamon. Combine well.

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).

Place sweet potato slices on baking sheet side by side. Make sure it doesn’t overlap.

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!

I couldnt get mine to crisp up without them burning. The thinner pieces started to burn after 15 min and the slightly thicker pieces never seem to crisp up. Any suggestions for next time?

Hi there! Try to slice the sweet potatoes evenly. That will help parts be over cooked and undercooked. Start checking at 15 mins, and then check every 2 minutes. A lot of times, ovens could actually be 10 degrees off, so that's why everyone's oven is a little different... hopefully this helps!! Good luck!
