Baked Sweet Potato Chips

These addictive chips are both sweet, salty and super healthy! Recipe by Laura Bashar of Family Spice

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Scrub clean:
    • 1 large sweet potato
  3. Using a mandolin, cut the sweet potato into 1/8-inch slices.
  4. Place sweet potato slices in a bowl and coat both sides with:
    • 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
    • 1/4 tsp paprika
    • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  5. Place the sweet potato slices on a baking sheet in one layer, making sure the slices are not touching each other.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes, then flip over. Bake for an additional 10-12 minutes until edges start to brown and crisp. The last 3-5 minutes are crucial as the chips can quickly go from perfect to burnt, so remove promptly when edges are starting to brown.
  7. Allow the chips to cool on the baking sheet until crisp further and serve.

Cooking Tips: The key to making these chips is to make sure all of the chips are the same thickness and approximate size. Smaller pieces will brown faster and will need to removed before the larger slices are done baking. These sweet potato chips have crispy edges and softer centers. For super crispy chips, slice to 1/16 inch thickness and bake at 385ºF for 10-12 minutes total, and do not flip the slices over. Allow the chips to cool on the baking sheet until crisp.
