    Baked Sweet Potato Chips Recipe – Crisp, delicious, salty baked sweet potato chips make the perfect healthy snack. A simple and easy recipe that is also Paleo and Whole30 approved. 

    Baked Sweet Potato Chips

    Homemade sweet potato chips are so goodmade with only a handful of ingredients – sweet potatoes, olive oil, and spices.  You can serve them with your favorite homemade dipping sauce. I like to serve them with homemade smoked paprika aioli sauce – that sauce is amazing and such a perfect combination with the sweet potatoes.

    Sweet potatoes are a staple in our house in the Fall. No, scratch that, they are a staple year-around, but I cook a lot more with sweet potatoes in the Fall. Some other favorite sweet potato recipes that I have been cooking a lot lately are this Sweet Potato Sausage Frittata and this Maple Mustard Chicken with Sweet Potatoes Skillet.

    How To Make Sweet Potato Chips Crispy

    To make sweet potato chips crispy use a mandoline to slice the sweet potatoes as thinly as possible. Also, make sure you roast them at a high temperature instead of low. For more tips on making the best crisp sweet potato chips, see the section below.

    5 Tips for Best Sweet Potato Chips

    • Use a mandolin to slice the sweet potato slices evenly.
    • Slice the sweet potatoes as thinly as possible to maximize the crispiness potential! (A mandolin makes things super easy.)
    • Hot, fast roast, instead of low, long bake. Bake them at a high temperature for about 20 minutes instead of baking them at a lower temperature for a longer period. A long, low bake (say 375°F or below) will result in tender sweet potatoes, but never crisp.
    • Don’t overcrowd the baking sheet. Spread the sweet potato slices into a single, even layer, leaving space around each slice. When too many ingredients are on one baking sheet, the heat from the sheet gets trapped under the food and creates steam, and the sweet potato slices will be tender instead of crisp.
    • Let the sweet potato chips cool on a cooling rack for about 10 minutes after you take them out of the oven.

    INGREDIENTS

    • 1.5 lbs sweet potatoes
    • 1/3 cup olive oil
    • 1 Tbsp dried rosemary
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp black pepper

    INSTRUCTIONS

    • Preheat oven to 400 F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. 
    • Peel the sweet potatoes, and use a mandolin slicer to cut the sweet potatoes into paper-thin rounds. (I set mine to the thinnest setting.)
    • Combine olive oil, salt, black pepper, and dried rosemary in a large mixing bowl. Add sliced sweet potatoes to the bowl and toss to coat. 
    • Spread sweet potato slices into a single layer on the baking sheets, and leave space around them. Bake about 10-12 minutes on each side turning them once, until golden. Remove from the oven and cool the sweet potato chips on cooling racks for about 5-10 minutes. They will crisp up a little more as they cool.
