Healthy Sweet Potato Chips

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



  • 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. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. My sweet potato chips turned out leathery. Any idea what I did wrong? Could it be my sweet potatoes were no good? Thanks for your thoughts.

      1. I made them in a dehydrator. My sweet potato chips and green beans came out leathery. My zucchini chips came out great!

          1. I will cook them longer. Fingers crossed! I used the same mandolin as the zucchini chip. Any luck dehydrating green beans?
