Crunchy Sweet Potato Chips ?

Hello guys

Happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome moms!? I am so fortunate to have an amazing mom who continues to look out for me on a daily basis. ☺

I have a yummy sweet potato chip recipe for you to try out today. Your kiddies will love these too!

Did you know? Eating just 1 small packet of chips a day can add up to the equivalent of drinking almost 5 litres of cooking oil per year??

The high levels of starches and refined carbs in a packet of chips can sky rocket glucose and insulin in your blood.  This imbalance causes you to feel less full and brings out the hunger monster throughout the day which leads to overeating.  Try this easy and healthy alternative instead.

Here we go…..

Crunchy Sweet Potato chips



1 big sweet potato

2 tsp olive oil

Sea Salt


Preheat your oven to 280 degrees

Wash the sweet potato and slice thinly (with peel on)

* This is the most important step so take time to make sure the slices are as thin as possible. I have been in a rush before and have cut my slices too thick and then they don’t become crispy. If you have a twister or something you can use to set the thickness and slice it for you, it will help A LOT and save on time too.

Soak the sweet potatoes for 10 mins in cold water

Remove the potato slices from the water, drain and dry off with paper towels.

Place the potato slices into a bowl and add the olive oil and mix thoroughly until every slice is completely coated in oil.

Place slices in a pan (I use a little bit of spray and cook just to make sure that the chips don’t stick to the pan) and spread them out completely and sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake for about 12 minutes and flip them over And bake for 12 more minutes.

Remove from the oven and let the chips cool in the pan. As they cool they will become even more crispy.




I’ll share some stunning snack ideas which are all below 100 calories a little later.

Have a fabulous Sunday
