These chips have all the crunch of regular potato chips without all the fat. Regular potato chips can have as many as 150 calories and 10 grams of fat for only 1 oz (about 15 chips)! My recipe is not only quick and easy, but it's tastier and healthier as well.
Sweet Potatoes are also a great source of vitamin A and antioxidants which also help prevent cancer. With only 75 calories and 2 grams of fat feel free to dig in. You can also get creative with your topping and make it your own. Try adding a tablespoon of oregano, cumin, rosemary, thyme or garlic powder to turn this effortless recipe into one everyone will be raving about.
Ingredients_ 1/2 pound sweet potato 1/2 tbsp canola oil 1/4 tsp kosher salt
1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. 2. Slice the sweet potatoes into very thin slices. 3. In a large bowl, toss potato with canola oil and salt to coat the chips lightly. Lay the slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. 4. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn over each chip and bake for 5 more minutes. Chips should be crisp. If not, bake up to 3 more minutes, checking every minute so the chips won't burn. Let cool before serving.
