Sweet Potato Chips

If you follow me on Instagram, you know these are a family fave in our home! I love that they are packed with nutrition and super easy to make and my kids love that they resemble chips.

Sweet potatoes are a great source of beta carotene which is an antioxidant and also a precursor for vitamin A in our body. Vitamin A is important in the health of our eyes, bones, and skin, and also plays a role in gene expression and cell differentiation. This means that it supports each type of cell to mature adequately and perform a particular function properly.

Here is the quick and easy recipe that will have your kids asking for this amazing veg!

Ingredients

Sweet potatoes

1 Tbsp. avocado oil or grapeseed oil

Instructions

1. Peel sweet potato and then slice it thinly…about 2 mm per slice.

2. Place on baking sheet. I like to use my stone as it allows for a crisper chip I find.

3. Drizzle oil over the potato slices.

4. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. You need to watch them closely so they crisp up but do not burn. I have learned from experience that this can be a thin line.

Until next time…stay healthy!
