Sweet potatoes remind me of two things, Thanksgiving, and pie. The sweet taste, and orange color make these the friendliest of all potatoes. Not only do they make you feel like you’re eating dessert for dinner, they also are filled with essential vitamins. Sweet potatoes are pretty much the cooler older brother to white potatoes. They have a great tan, and know whats good for you. You can never go wrong with a sweet potato, or these sweet potato chips.
Crispy Sweet Potato Chips
1 Large Sweet Potato
1/3 c. Coconut Oil (melted)
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
The easiest way to slice the potato is with a mandolin, or slice side on a cheese grater, but you can definitely hand slice them in a pinch. Just make sure to slice them very thin for the best results.
After thinly slicing the potato, brush eat slice with melted coconut oil.
Place the potato slices in a single layer on a metal baking sheet. Do not use parchment paper with these chips, they wont crisp up all the way.
Mix together the salt and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the potato slices.
Bake for an hour, turning them over at the half way point.
Once the chips are browned and crispy, remove them from the oven.
Don’t panic if your chips aren’t completely crisp yet, once they are completely cooled they will become super crispy.
*You’re house will smell delicious after baking them!
