Sweet Potato Chips - Not Just a Southern Treat!

One day while searching for a healthy side to accompany War Eagle Barbecue Chicken Sandwich, I came across not just a homemade potato chip recipe on Parents.com, but a sweet potato chip recipe. Goldmine! The secret is the sprinkling of sliced sweet potatoes with sugar and cinnamon. Healthy, yet the kids like the taste and the texture.


  1. 2 Medium sweet potatoes
  2. 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  3. 1 teaspoon sugar
  4. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray like Pam or use unbleached parchment paper on a baking sheet.
  2. Wash potatoes well. Cut sweet potatoes into very thin slices with a heavy knife. Cut the slices as thin as possible - keep in mind as thin as a potato chip.
  3. Gently rub oil onto sweet potato slices, tossing to combine.
  4. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, tossing in bowl to coat evenly.
  5. Place slices in a single layer on a prepared baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
  6. Turn chips over and continue to bake until slightly crisp, about 5 minutes.
  7. Transfer to plate and cool 5 minutes, and then serve.
