Baked Sweet Potato Chips


These chips are a guilt free snack to keep you happy and on-track with any weight loss goals. They are filling, and can be spiced up with different herb combinations, even salt and vinegar, to keep you interested, satisfied, and happy with your snacks!

Pro tip: I like to get perfect chips by using a mandoline slicer, on the thinnest setting possible. Creating very thin chips is the key to getting a good crunch-as well as an extended cooking time. While the cook time might intimidate you, don’t let it! We’re going to slowly bake these-almost like dehydrating-to reduce moisture in the sweet potatoes so we can get a good crunch. The actual prep just takes minutes-and after that you’ll just be monitoring your chips so they don’t burn.



Servings: 5 cups (approx.)



  • 3 medium sweet potatoes thinly sliced
  • 3 ½ Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil + more for brushing
  • Salt
  • Pepper if desired



  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Rinse and scrub sweet potatoes. Thoroughly dry before proceeding. Thinly slice potatoes (The best methods are either a food processor with a slicing blade or a mandoline slicer). You want the potatoes to cook evenly so be sure to make them as uniform as possible while slicing.
  2. In a medium sized bowl combine olive oil and sweet potatoes. Stir to combine and coat evenly.
  3. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Very lightly brush olive oil on parchment.
  4. Arrange sweet potato slices evenly on baking sheets. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper (if desired).
  5. Bake at 250 for 1 hour, until crispy
  6. Turn oven up to 350 and let chips brown very slightly. Watch chips and make sure they do not burn
  7. If you’d like them cool, place on a cooling rack and let sit 10 minutes.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
  9. Extras can be stored in an airtight container. Will last for up to a week.

**If you’re craving some chips fast, you can bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, but you must flip and rotate the chips to ensure they don’t stick or burn. This is a bit more complicated, but will still get you delicious crunchy chips
