My family looooves sweet potato chips and they are so easy to make. If you have a slicer, make a large batch because they are sure to go quickly.
2-3 large yams or sweet potatoes. (orange or purple yams are higher in vitamins than actual sweet potatoes which have yellow or white flesh.)
Scrub the sweet potatoes and cut off any bad spots. Do not peel; that is where all the nutrition is. Slice very thin with a sharp knife or a vegetable or meat slicer.
Very lightly grease 2-3 cookie sheets. Place the sweet potato slices on the greased cookie sheets so they are not touching or overlapping.
Bake at 250º for 30 minutes, then flip with a spatula and bake another 30 minutes or until crunchy and very lightly browned. Do not over-brown them or they will not taste as good. Just to the crispy stage is tasty.
That’s it! So easy to make a highly nutritious snack that is so much better for your family than junk food.
