Baked Sweet Potato Crisps - A Low Fat Super SnackGetting the perfect crispy texture when making baked potato “chips” is not always easy. It can take some trial and error to get the crunchy exterior that makes a chip a chip!

But, it’s worth the effort. Without the crispiness, you’ve got a pile of thinly sliced baked potato. And while these might taste delicious, they won’t deliver that satisfying crispy crunch.

The good news? The method used in this recipe achieves the results you want.

The trade off is it takes a little while to happen, so be sure to allow plenty of time for this one. It can take up to 2 hours from start to finish, but the results are oh so worth it.

TIP: For best results, use a mandoline slicer to achieve uniformly thin slices. If you don’t have one, you can also use a sharp knife or vegetable peeler.

Baked Sweet Potato Crisps
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 250 F (120C).
  2. Using a mandoline, knife or vegetable peeler, cut sweet potatoes into uniform slices approximately 1/8” thick. Place on paper or clean kitchen towel to absorb excess moisture and set aside.
  3. Line 2 large, rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Oil the paper using the olive oil cooking spray. Arrange the sweet potato slices in a single layer on top. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  4. Place baking sheets in oven for one hour. Remove sheets and flip each chip. Sprinkle with additional salt, if desired. Return pans to oven, being sure to rotate each sheet and place on a different rack from before.
  5. Check on crisps after 20 minutes. If they are not yet crispy, continue baking until they become crisp and golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and cool for 10-15 minutes before serving. Once cool, store excess in an airtight container.
Recipe Notes

Total baking time will vary by oven and how much moisture is in your sweet potatoes.  It could take up to another 30 minutes to get them crisp.
