Sweet Potato Chips

Addicted to snacks? Well here is a healthy option for potato chips, sweet potato chips filled with nutrients that are great for your body. They may even help with a sweet tooth craving!


1 large sweet potato or yam

Extra virgin olive oil

Fresh thyme

Salt and pepper


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Slice sweet potato into 1/8 – 1/4 inch thick rounds.  Place rounds into a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper and tons of fresh thyme (simply hold the small branch and scrape down to remove leaves).  Use a good amount of thyme, the flavor mellows out a lot when you cook it.  Use your hands or a spoon to toss evenly to coat.

3. Place rounds directly on large baking sheet or on foil lined sheet if you prefer.  Do not overlap.  Roast for 25-35 minutes or until crisp and tender.  Halfway through cooking, use a spatula to flip the potatoes and rotate your cooking sheet.  Enjoy!

Note – if you want a crispier “chip” I would slice thinner rounds and increase baking time.   Be sure to keep an eye so they don’t burn!
