Skinny Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Prep time: Less than 10 minutes

Cook time: 1-1½ hours

Yield: 6 servings

Serving size: 18-20 chip


1 large sweet potato, peeled

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

¼ tsp salt


    Preheat the oven to 225° F, and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.

    Using a mandoline slicer, slice the sweet potato chips very thinly. On a slicer with three thickness settings, use the second.

    Line the potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheets, and lightly brush the tops with oil.

    Season evenly with the salt.

    Bake for 1 to 1½ hours, until the chips are crispy, rotating halfway through. Allow the chips to rest for 5 minutes before eating.

    Store leftovers in an airtight container.
