Raise your hand if you love sweet potatoes and you’re obsessed with guac!

I will admit that even though I am an enormous chocoholic and I love baking healthy treats, I would pick a bag full of chips over a cookie any day of the week. With a side of guacamole or queso. Definitely a chip girl, anyone else?!

Since I make these little guys so often and have used them in so many different varieties, I decided it was definitely time for them to get a recipe spotlight.

If you love sweet potatoes as much as I do and you are looking for a quick and easy side to any dinner or snack, look no further. These Easy Peasy Sweet Potato Chips are your guy(s). I love to pair them with my 5 Minute Guacamole for a crowd-pleasing party appetizer or to make my kids happy for a snack any day of the week. I also make them at least once a week as an easy dinner veggie that I know my kids will never turn their noses up to.

You can load these bad boys with guac, use them to make a bunless burger or if you really want to die and go to heaven, you can use them to make my Thai-Style Sweet Potato Sliders.

However basic or fancy you want to get with them, I know once you try them they will be in your life for a long time. Just think of them as your new best friend.

Besides how well they pair with everything, they are darn idiot proof to make. They are seriously so simple. You cut up a sweet potato or two in thin layers on some parchment paper, spruce them up a bit with some oil and spices and then bake them until they’re crispy!

Ok guys, here you go. The easiest recipe you’ll ever make! You’re welcome.


Ingredients:

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, washed and cut into very thin slices

  • avocado oil spray or coconut oil spray

  • salt and pepper

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Instructions:

  1. Set oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Wash and dry 2 sweet potatoes. Cut them into very thin slices, about 1/3 to 1/4 inch thickness (thicker if you want to use them as buns for sliders, thinner if you want them to be crispier.)

  3. Arrange the potato slices on the baking sheet, leaving 1/4 inch space in between each one (this helps them to get crispy).

  4. Lightly spray each side with a bit of avocado oil (or coconut oil). Add salt, pepper and garlic powder to each side.

  5. Bake them in the oven for about 20 minutes or until crispy and golden brown but at the halfway mark, flip them to ensure they brown evenly on both sides.

  6. Wait 5 minutes before serving them with your favorite dip or dinner.
