Raise your hand if you enjoy a salty and crunchy snack. I am going to assume you have at least one hand in the air. In case you are wondering, both my hands are stretched up to the sky. Years ago I was more of a sweets girl than a salty girl, but tables have turned and my heart belongs to sea salt. Baked Sweet Potato chips are my go-to snack. They fulfill my salt craving without being too heavy. Using sweet potatoes adds a nutritional punch and an extra layer of flavor.
These chips take a bit of time and patience. Slow and steady wins the race when it comes to crunchy baked Sweet Potato Chips. Cooking them at a high temp and short period of time has never worked for me. I am always left with crispy edges and soggy centers or burnt edges and crispy centers. Call me crazy, but I like the entire chip to be crispy.
INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are part of the super food family (the royals of all food groups). Rumor has it they are one of the healthiest veggies we eat.
-They are high in Vitamin A, which supports vision and reproductive health.
-Great source of fiber to help keep you regular.
-High in iron. Eat up vegetarians!
-Antioxidant overload. Vitamin C and beta-carotene work hand in hand to rid the bod of free radicals, which can be cancer causing and promote aging.
