How about some Sweet Potato Chips? These chips are perfect anytime of year, and they are even healthy. I actually made these chips back in April for the Clean Eating Challenge, and then completely forgot about them! These yummy chips are paleo, whole30, vegan, and clean eating friendly. You can’t ask for more than that. Oh wait, they super easy to make and are ready in minutes!

These chips are slightly sweet, a little bit salty, and nice and crunchy. Some of the chips may be darker than others, I am guessing that is perfectly normal. I didn’t die after eating them, so I’m sure it’s fine.

How to make Sweet Potato Chips in the Microwave:

Start by slicing your sweet potatoes as thinly as possible. If you own a mandolin, now is the time to pull it out and use it. You want your chips to be the same thickness so they cook evenly…..

Toss the sliced potatoes with olive oil in a large bowl.

Spread out the potato slices on a parchment paper lined plate so they are just barely touching.

Cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 minutes until lightly browned. Each microwave is different, so keep an eye on the first batch to see how they cook.

Remove from the microwave and sprinkle with sea salt. Set them aside and allow to cool completely and become crunchy.

Continue cooking in batches until you use up all of the slices. Store in a sealed container, or zipper top bag.

Serve with your favorite sandwich or dip.

Recipe Notes:

  • I have a habit of peeling every potato that ends up in my hands. They do not need to be peeled if your prefer to leave the skin on.
  • Each microwave cooks differently so keep an eye on them until you know how they will cook in yours.

  1. Perfect (healthy!) snack idea, Lisa!! I peel all of my potatoes too – so no judgement here! LOL And … I’m not a big fan of salt either!! Pinning and sharing on FB!!

  2. Lisa, these chips sound amazing! I’m always looking for new ways to make sweet potatoes and putting them in chip form sounds like a win-win situation 🙂 Also, how are we already over halfway done with 2014? Crazy!

  3. You made these in the microwave? Brilliant! I’ve tried making them in the oven and they just weren’t right. I need to try this!

  4. What??/ You made these beauties in the microwave? I had no idea. These are so perfect Lisa. They’d certainly make me feel less guilty about snacking!

  5. I freaking LOVE sweet potato anything. (Phil and I both love your SP fries.) I don’t have a mandolin. If I did, it would probably be the instrument kind and my daughter would kill me for trying to run potatoes through it. 😉

    But I have a new cuisinart…perhaps it has an attachment….I must investigate…Yum…


  6. Oh. My. Word. I about died when I saw these were microwaved! I live in the PNW, where A/C doesn’t come standard in homes, so during the summer I avoid my oven like the plague! Microwave to the rescue! Thanks for sharing. I love sweet potatoes! Can’t wait to try these. Pinning!

  7. I am soo trying this! I would love it if you joined and contribute your awesome posts at my link party at City of Creative Dreams, starts on Fridays 😀 Hope to see you there at City of Creative Dreams Link Party.
