Sweet Potato Chips

If you are looking for a healthy alternative to potato chips, try making these at home. They are great with your sandwich or burger.


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • paprika


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Peel sweet potatoes and slice as thinly as possible. Toss with 2 Tbsp. of olive oil and spread in a thin layer on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and paprika. Bake about 20 minutes or until crispy. Makes 4 servings.

Can do the same with yams which are different from sweet potatoes, plantain, any food that grows from a tuber.

Fish sauce is a better option and certainly more thrifty than olive oil. I've also found that 3 - 5 minutes in the microwave works better than 20 minutes in the oven. Drop a line if you want my recipe:

I am always looking for ways to preserve food and make it delicious. I was given a bag of huge sweet potatoes and decided to dry them. My first attempt was not that great to eat as a snack, so a friend suggested cinnamon and brown sugar - yum!


  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into thin circles
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • a pinch of sea salt


Put cinnamon, sugar, and salt into a bag and shake up potatoes in small batches. Place on the screen of your food dryer. Turn it on and dry until crispy, about 12 hours.

Store in a glass jar. They will keep for at least a year if you can manage not to eat them.

Servings: 2
Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Cooking Time: 12 Hours
