Baked sweet potato chips make for a delicious, healthy snack, especially when you’re craving deep-fried chips!
I’ve heard it a lot. People start eating clean and they miss their potato chips. I mean, ya… they’re good, but they are definitely not good for you.
So I thought I’d take a crack at making some clean eating potato chips.
Due to the higher fat content, you will want to enjoy the baked sweet potato chips in moderation. But, at least you can have some if you “really gotta have some”. Am I right?
Sweet potatoes have a lot of healthy nutrients, so you can feel better about eating them, too.
The sweet potato chips turned out so delicious! And actually, Mini Chef never even got to try them because I had a friend over for girl’s night and she just couldn’t stop eating them!
How thick should sweet potato chips be?
Regular potato chips are cut very thinly. If you like crispy potato wedges, you can cut the sweet potatoes into thicker slices.
I will say that it is really important to use some sort of slicing device that will cut the sweet potato into a uniform thickness. This ensures that the sweet potato chips will bake evenly. Something like a mandolin or old fashioned cheese slicer (I used my SaladMaster) works well. It also makes the job a lot faster. With a slicing device, you can do all the prep work in about 5 to 10 minutes.
