Healthy Sweet Potato Chips

Print Friendly

Who doesn’t like sweet potato chips?  Most everybody likes sweet potato chips, right?  They don’t have to be fatty and greasy.  This healthy sweet potato chip recipe are delicious and can be made easily too.  I have more of a sweet tooth, but my husband loves potato chips.  He always has had a bag of Kettle Chips in the house.  Hopefully, he will just eat my healthy sweet potato chips from now on.  These healthy sweet potato chips did disappear pretty fast!

I did two batches of these.  One in the oven and one in the food dehydrator.  Both came out great and my kids loved them.  We made more the next day.  If you eat a whole bunch, who cares?  They are healthy.  It’s like eating a whole tray of Kale Chips.  Delicious and guilt free.

Healthy Sweet Potato Chips

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200.
  • Peel the sweet potato and slice it thin. I used a mandoline for this.
  • Line a couple baking baking sheets with parchment.
  • Place the chips on the baking sheet.
  • Using a brush, brush a small amount of oil onto each chip.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Bake for about 2-3 hours.

Check on them often as everyone’s oven is different. I didn’t have to shake mine at all. I just let them cook and I would touch them every so often to see how crisp they felt. That’s it.

  1. I love how you used coconut oil! They look just delicious (no surprise) and I can’t wait to try the recipe. Thank you for sharing. I hope you have a bright and happy weekend!

  2. I’m going try this. I purchased organic Trader Joe’s coconut oil and haven’t try it as of yet. I love sweet potatoes. I have been making sweet potato chips paper thin with an attachment on my food processor. Then frying in olive oil. they are good, but cook really fast and I burn quite a few.

    I’m going to try your method and I will let you know how I did. Thx.

    1. Great! I just brush a super thin layer of oil on them just to get the sea salt to stick. I hope you enjoy my version. :)

  3. Thanks for sharing! I happen to have a mandoline, a sweet potatoe and coconut oil so i will make those this afternoon! One question: did you put the oil on both sides or just on top?

  4. Thanks for these. I love sweet potatoes! I might sprinkle with a little cinnamon and sugar to see how those taste. I’ve noticed some burger places are now offering sweet potato fries as an alternate to regular fries. Yum!

  5. They were ridiculously good. The smell of the coconut oil wafting in the house was an added beachy bonus! What mandoline do you use? I borrowed a friends and it was terrible.

  6. Finally got a chance to make these….they were delicious…..made some in the oven and some in the dehydrator….the entire family loved them both!

  7. I tried these and they were so delicious! How did you get yours to not shrink? Mine did. I used spray olive oil and sea salt. Baked beets wrapped in foil in the oven at the same time, and they turned out perfect!

    1. Yay! Mine shrink too. It’s inevitable because the moisture is taken out. They are still yummy though!

    1. We set it about potato chip thin. Not sure of the setting, but it’s not not paper thin. Maybe about as thin as 10 sheets of paper?

  8. I’m curious what would happen if you put the parchment paper directly on the oven grate or put cooling racks on the cookie sheets and then the parchment paper on the cooling racks to raise the chips up.

  9. Do you think you could microwave the sweet potatoes, so you don’t have to cook them so long? I want to try these, but with temperatures into the 100′s, I don’t want the oven on for 2-3 hours.

    1. You can try, but I am not sure if it will work. Please report the results. I would love to be able to tell others.

  10. I had bought a microwave silicon dish from a well know cable station that is on 24 hours a day and has TSV – well I bought the plate to make regular potato chips in the micro wave – I returned it – it tasted a little raw – but then I said why do I have to pay this $ for this when I can use a regular plate – did it again on a dish and it was fine – it was a single layer – you can look it up on line for the recipe – and find it – I don’t see why you cant do the sweet potato in the microwave as well – you will just have to keep doing it on 30 second interval to see the timing and on a single layer not touching – I do remember that the potato couldn’t be wet – you had to pat it dry – and you could put on reg. potatoes garlic, onion powder, curry, etc – I also saw the recipe in a taste of home mag (am I allowed to type that?) if not – sorry – you will let me know and I wont for the next time.

  11. How long do these sweet potato chips last? We are going camping and I want to make some to take camping. Thanks for letting me know.

    1. They should last a week. Store them in a container with a bit of rice. The rice will absorb the moisture and help keep them crispy.

  12. Have you ever fried thinly sliced sweet potatoes in coconut oil? YUMMY! Pretty quick snack! I cant wait to try them baked! Preheating my oven now!

  13. the best fries i ever made were sweet potato with a bit of cajun spice and a hint of sugar they were they bomb and i bet these chips would be just as awesome that way! good thing i just bought some humongous sweet pototoes cause they were on sale!

  14. Do you think you could do this method with squash? I am on the Specific Carb Diet and not able to eat sweet potatoes. I would love to have something crispy and salty.

    1. They need to be really thin. You can probably slice them thin enough if you have a really good knife. All my knives are terrible, so I used the mandolin.

    1. No. You bake them on very low heat so they can bake without getting burned. I actually bake them longer in my dehydrator.

  15. These are delicious! The only problem is that just one whole large sweet potato took three batches. I have a double oven so the first two came out at the same time and between my husband, myself and my two year old the first two batches are nearly half eaten.

    1. I’m glad you like them! Yes if you are using an oven, it can take more than one batch. If you use a dehydrator, you can do it all at once.

  16. Hi,
    I made my first batch yesterday. They came kind of brown rather than the beautiful color like on the picture. Do you have any idea why/
    Thank you!

    1. Not sure. Did you make them right after slicing them up? Perhaps the oven could have browned them? I noticed when I make chips in the dehydrator, they come out this pink color, but in the oven they do brown slightly. Maybe because the oven temp is higher than the dehydrator?
