Crispy Sweet Potato Chips

Hello Lovely,

Nothing beats a good chip! Especially if they’re light, crunchy and flavorful with little grease or calories.  While the commercial variety with high sodium is often seen on the store shelves, I prefer the more homemade and healthier variety.  Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, vitamin B6 and carotenoids and although it’s usually a side dish to an extreme, it makes a great crispy chip.  So do your heart and skin a favour, with this potato chips recipe:



Ingredients

1 – 2 medium sweet potatoes (orange in color and sliced thinly)
1 drizzle Olive Oil
Dash of salt

 

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place the sliced potatoes into a bowl and drizzle with olive oil with a dash of salt.  Mix gently and place on a baking sheet, with space between each slice. Let bake for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool for 5 – 10 minutes.  Sprinkle with salt to taste (can add cinnamon or cayenne for more flavor). Enjoy!
