Can you believe that it is already the middle of July? I am sitting here scratching my head, wondering where the time has disappeared to? Before you know it, summer will be over, the kids will be back in school, and I will be posting pumpkin recipes. Yikes…I’m not ready. The last thing that I want to see is snow…ever again!!
Okay, enough of that. 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, 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!
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…..
I have this bizarre 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. 😉 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.
Do not bother straining to see the grains of salt on my chips, there isn’t much to see. 😉 I am not a huge fan of salt, so I barely use any! 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, LOL
Have you tried Sweet Potato Chips before? What flavors have you tried, I’m dying try some fun flavors for fall. 😉
