Paleo Sweet Potato Chips

Paleo Sweet Potato Chips

Some of you don’t live in the US and don’t have access to a bunch of fun ingredients I usually use for my recipes. An example of such ingredients: sweet potato chips.

I have received requests to please post a recipe for Paleo Sweet Potato Chips, because if you can’t buy them, then might as well make them yourself! And to be honest, making them may actually end up being cheaper too ;). You just have to make sure they don’t burn, so you’ll have to watch them closely while they are baking in the oven. Another great tip is to use avocado oil; I find that this type of oil makes the chips crunchier and crispier…which are two desired characteristics when it comes to potato chips (especially if you want to use them for dipping).

Hope this recipe helps you guys! Have fun eating them with your favorite dip!

  1. Cool recipe. I just learned some more recipes using Paleo Recipe Book By Sebastien Noel and I will add this baked sweet potato chips as a must try recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I used a food processor to slice the potatoes super thin 1/8 inch thick; baked them plain (no oil or salt) on parchment paper, at 200 degrees F for 2 hours – perfect. Curly; no burnt slices, and I never had to turn them. I just set it and forget it (after putting the timer on). Puuuuurfect!

    1. Yes, you can. I like to use avocado oil, because I find that it gives the sweet potato fries a bit more of a crunchy feel to them.

  3. Hello there, I’m a little new to paleo recipes. How long can these chips be stored and do they need to be refrigerated? Also, Im have a large group for a wedding and serving 2 dinners. Any ideas on feeding a crowd with healthy eats without breaking the bank! and simple too!! Thanks!

    1. Hi Kay! I wouldn’t recommend storing these chips…I’d make just what you’re going to eat in order to consume them fresh. If you store them they might get a bit soggy. For a large crowd…serving something like my Paleo Chili (https://www.amazingpaleo.com/2013/09/05/crockpot-turkey-pumpkin-chili-soup/), my Asian Paleo Burgers (https://www.amazingpaleo.com/2013/06/11/asian-paleo-burgers/) and a nice large greens salad (greens, cherry tomatoes, strawberries, avocado slices and pecans) will work great! 🙂

  4. Hi there! I made these today and they are delicious! However, as an avid paleontologist eater, but on a tight budget, I am looking to make chips that I can package in a zip lock or something and take to work for lunch or just a healthy snack. My chips always turn out soggy, not crisp, or completely burnt. Do you happen to know how to fix this problem? I also have difficulty with uniform slicing. My mandolin works well but so.e come out paper thin while others are pretty thick. What am I doing wrong?
