The best thing about homemade kids' snacks is that you can tailor the content to meet your little one's tastes. Sweet potato chips that you make at home are a great alternative not only to potato chips ​but even the sweet potato chips you might buy at the store. They are super easy to make and pack a real nutrition punch—they are loaded with vitamins A and C. Serve them at snack time or even as a side dish with lunch or dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato, washed
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Prepare the sweet potato. You can leave the skin on if you choose, but in any case, make slices to about 1/8 inch thick. Place in a large bowl with the oil and any seasonings. Toss to coat.
  4. Spread the slices in a single layer on the cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes until they are golden brown. Turn halfway through the baking time.
  1. Carefully spread the baked chips on a paper towel to drain any excess oil.

Ingredient Variations and Substitutions

You can adjust seasoning to taste. Popular options include garlic, brown sugar, paprika, chili powder.

Cooking and Serving Tips

Baked sweet potato chips can be stored up to a week in an airtight container.
