Treat your kids to a delicious and healthy after-school snack on their first week back from summer break. These sweet potato chips are a great way to replace starchy, salty chips with something that tastes just as great and helps maintain gum health with a boost of vitamins A and C.
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 225 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Slice the sweet potato into thin, uniform chips. (If you’re using a mandolin slicer with 3 thickness settings, choose the second setting.) Place the potato slices on the baking sheets in a single layer and lightly brush them with oil. Season evenly with salt. Bake for 60 to 90 minutes until the chips are crispy. Flip chips to the other side after 30 minutes. Allow the chips to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
