Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Chips
Who doesn’t love those store-bought potato chips and potato fries loaded with saturated fats and preservatives? It’s a perfect snack whenever we’re watching movies or a game with our family and friends.
So, instead of spending money on those chips, why don’t you make your own? Today, I’m going to present you to my crispy baked sweet potato chips recipe! You can season it however you want! You can also make sweet potato fries with this recipe!
Sweet potatoes are root vegetables that are starchy, large, and sweet-tasting. These tuberous roots are tapered, long, and have smooth skin with color ranging between yellow, orange, brown, purple, red, and beige.
It’s grown in tropical regions in the Americas. It’s an excellent source of vitamin A, dietary fibers, vitamin B1, vitamin B3, vitamin B6, vitamin C, manganese, and potassium.
This snack is effortless to make. Thinly slice the sweet potatoes. Bear in mind that if the slice is too thick, it’ll take longer to bake and may not be crispy. Spray the pieces with oil and then bake sweet potato chips for 20 minutes at 300 F. Flip the baked sweet potato and bake for another 20 minutes.
Remove chips from the oven and place the firm ones on a rack to cool. If there are flimsy or loose slices, bake them again for 10 minutes. Be careful not to burn them. Once cooked and cooled, sprinkle it with seasoning.

Slice a sweet potato into thin 1/8-inch thick pieces using a mandolin or a sharp knife. Keep in mind that chips that are too thick will take longer to bake and may not become crispy.
