Baked Sweet Potato Chips

I am always on the lookout for new sweet potato recipes. Andrew and I usually have sweet potatoes at least once a week. Whether they are mashedbakedroasted or thrown into chili, they are definitely one of my favorites! These guilt free baked potato chips are one of my favorite ways to enjoy sweet potatoes and only take about 20 minutes to make. You do want to watch the potatoes very carefully in the last minutes of baking to make sure they don’t burn. If some of the chips are browning faster than others, just remove them from the baking sheet and return the rest to the oven to finish baking. I accidentally burned a few myself, but they still tasted pretty darn good! 😉

  4. Oh they look grand! Wonder if I could use the same ingredients for sweet tater fries?

  5. HedgeComber says:

    They look incredible, great to serve with dips I’m guessing – YUM! I’ll be trying them tomorrow, thanks x

  6. I love sweet potatoes too but haven’t tried making chips with them. Will have to give it a try.

    One of my favorite “burger joints” serves these as an alternative to fries. I must admit I’ve never had their fries in all the times I’ve been there. Now I can make them myself. Thanks!

  8. Yummy! The spices on these ones would be delicious. My dad and mom made us some of these and they also sliced like yours. I find they “stayed together” and didn’t crumble like a French fry cut did when I made them.

  9. I use a similar combination of spices for sweet potato chips, always so good.

    Wanna try these so bad

  23. Delicious! Definitely going to try these.

  24. Regina Miller says:

    Can’t wait to try these. I also thought about a sweet version with cinnamon and sugar that may be delicious as well. I’m planning on trying both.

  25. I cut the potatoes in wedges, roll in oil then sprinkle a fair amount of taco seasoning on the potato, baking then approx., 25 minutes, turning once. Oh so verrryyy good!!!!

    Just made these (saw the recipe on pinterest and couldn’t resist!) They were SO good! I think next time I’ll focus mostly on cumin (my fave spice for sweet potatoes.) I also cut these a lot thinner than you did I think- I used the thinnest setting on my mandolin. They only needed to cook about 14 minutes. SO DELISH!!!! Thanks for the great recipe.

  28. I, too, love sweet potato anything (well, as long as you skip the jam and marshmallow casserole) and I prefer baked snacks to fried ones. I’m sure yours taste lovely.

  29. CJ says:

    Found this via Pinterest and made them last night. So yummy! They also seem like a great snack. Have you (or anyone) tried storing them for a few days or do you always serve them right away?

  30. Stacey says:

    Saw these on Pinterest and will try them for sure. what a great snack idea! Maybe a good base for toppings to serve as an appetizer too? Goat cheese with honey? Ricotta mixed with canned pumpkin? thank you for sharing!

    I have made sweet potato chips with coconut oil. I put coconut oil and chips in a ziplot baggie, make sure chips are coated, place on parchment paper in single layer, cook in 400 degree preheated oven about 20-25 min. GREAT
