Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet Potato Chips from The Skinny Pear

I love sweet potato’s and right now they are a staple in our diet since we are trying our hardest to follow the autoimmune paleo protocol.  Let me tell you it’s not easy!  But if you read my post on Graves Disease, you’ll find out why we are doing it.

My daughter is a huge fan of sweet potato fries, but she refuses to try the chips, although I will say she tried a piece of bacon tonight, that was quite a moment because she is a FUSSY eater!

These are pretty simple chips to make, It’s a slice and dice and walk away kind of operation.

What you’ll need:


Mandolin slicer

Garlic salt

Olive oil

Sweet Potatoes

Thinly slice the sweet potatoes, I used the “extra thin” slicer on my mandolin.  When you slice them super thin, they don’t take as long to dehydrate.  I also sliced them on a diagonal so they are nice and long.

Place sweet potatoes on the dehydrator trays in a flat layer, brush the sweet potatoes with a little olive oil and then sprinkle the garlic salt on over top.  I only did this on one side as I feel sweet potatoes have enough delicious flavor they didn’t need a whole lot of extras on them.

Stack trays on turn dehydrator on to  125degrees.  Let dehydrator run until chips are crispy, I left mine about 24 hours, but it will depend on how thick your slices are.


I’m out,

    Just got a dehydrator, may try these out, but I bet they are pretty difficult without the mandolin … (Stopping by from Let’s Get Real.)

    I love sweet potatoes and I love chips (they are my weakness) – these look great. I don’t have a dehydrator though. I wonder if they could be done in the oven successfully.

      I think you could, set your oven at the lowest setting and you should be able to get the same effect. Let me know how it goes!

    I tried sweet potatoes in the dehydrator and they totally didn’t turn out. I’ll have to try them again with your recipe! Thanks!

    I usually burn potato chips in the oven. I like that this version is fool proof. Thanks for sharing it at Let’s Get Real Friday Link Party.
