These easy baked sweet potato chips are delicious, low calorie and low carb- and best of all, they only take a few minutes to make!
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, 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 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.
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!
