Oven Baked Sweet Potato Chips

"Guilt-free snack! These chips are made without any fat. For attractive circular chips, look for sweet potatoes that are round rather than long. I think these are even yummier than regular potato chips..."

Ready In:
1hr 29mins
36 chips


  • 1 large sweet potato, unpeeled, washed, and dried (about 9 ounces)
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper


  • Heat oven to 200°F with two racks.
  • Line two baking pans with parchment paper, and set aside.
  • Slice potato crosswise, as thin as possible.
  • Arrange the slices on the prepared sheets, and keep them from touching as much as possible.
  • Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Cook for 50 minutes.
  • Slices will dehydrate and shrink; turn chips over, and rotate baking sheets if needed for even cooking.
  • Cook until slices are crisped and fluted around the edges and the centers are still orange, not brown, 30 to 40 more minutes.
  • Transfer to cooling racks, and cool chips on baking sheets.
  • (Chips will be soft when removed from oven and will crisp as they cool.) Store in an airtight container, at room temperature, up to 3 days.

    Absolutely the worse recipe I have ever tried. 200 degrees for 50 minutes, my arse.... I did 80 minutes on near paper thin cut sweet potatoes and they were still not anywhere near crisp, even when cooled and I used sea salt and freshly ground pepper and they still were bland and inedible.

    I made these and they came out beautiful and crisp. I used a mandolin to get them thin. Yes, they do shrink down a lot. I did not season them. I did find them rather tasteless. But I also made them as a healthy snack for my 2 mini-schnauzers. They love sweet potato treats from the pet store, but I've found them to be way too expensive. It is much cheaper to make them myself. My dogs LOVE them!!! So if you don't like them and have dogs I'm pretty sure they will love them too!


Hi everyone! I'm addicted to recipezaar - there are so many things that I love about this site; the wonderful people, recipes, lots of great pictures and there's always someone who'll answer my cooking/baking/general question. I grew up in Malaysia, but now live in sunny Singapore. Both are beautiful tropical (read: HOT!) countries in Southeast Asia. There are so many good food here, especially ethnic stuff like spicy Malaysian curries (which will clear the worst blocked nose), flaky & crispy Indian roti paratha/canai, homey Chinese stir-fries, rich & decadent Asian desserts like kuih lapis (Malay many-layers cake), pineapple tarts, crumbly peanut cookies etc. <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/zaarfreak/REI/12may05REI2_S.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com">
