Sweet Potato Chips - Home Made!

Friday, November 15, 2013

There aren't many things that beat a nice crunchy delicious chip!  Whether you like veggie chips, potato chips, or tortilla chips.  They are great on their own or they are great when dipped into the plethora of dip options that we have today.

Adam and I have recently given up chips.  It's not because they are made out of potatoes but because most of the time they are made with canola oil, sunflower oil, vegetable oil, or soy products.  Why can't they just make them with decent oils like coconut oil or beef tallow!? Sigh!  Though, I do have to say that just yesterday I found a bag of veggie chips at TJ Maxx made with palm oil, woot woot!!

Seeing as I love chips (who doesn't!) and that I love sweet potatoes I decided to make sweet potato chips.  If you like regular potato chips go ahead and substitute that in.  They will just take a bit longer in the oven.  My grandma actually gave me quite a nifty little tool for this for my birthday this past summer!  It's like a square 4 sided cheese grater.  One side is for cheese, another for fine grating, another a smaller cheese grating, and lastly one side with a single blade (which is what I used).  On the inside is this little container and it came with a flat tool that saves your hands from getting grated!

Anyways, I highly recommend that you invest in something that is of this sort.  It has been way more useful that I originally thought!

  • 1 sweet potato
  • coconut oil
  • sea salt
Honey mustard sauce:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F).  
  2. Thinly slice the sweet potato.  The thinner you can get it the better, but don't cut your finger off!  
  3. Melt a few tablespoons of coconut oil in a medium bowl.  
  4. Add a few teaspoons of salt and the sweet potato slices.
  5. Mix together until they are all evenly coated.  
  6. Place on a baking sheet that has a piece of parchment or wax paper placed on it.  Bake in the oven for a start of 12-14 min.  
  7. After that bake at 2 min increments until crispy. I say this because once these get close to being done they go from being done to burnt in a matter of minutes!  Yes I learned this the hard way!  Mine are even probably a little over done.  So if you don't get it right the first time don't sweat it.  Just make sure you're in the kitchen and paying attention to the oven otherwise it could go up in smoke in a matter of moments if you get distracted!  I also learned this the hard way.  ;)
  8. Enjoy!!! (I know I did!)
