Oven Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Hello beautiful readers!

With football season upon us, it’s time to talk about some healthy snacks.  I’m not much of a snacker, but when I’m watching a game I love something munch-y.  We are Steelers and Gators fans in my house and win or lose football is always a pleasant and fun part of our fall.

My favorite thing to make when we watch a game is my Vegetarian Nachos, but I have to admit I’ve been in search of a less processed alternative to add to the mix.

After some trial and error (several rounds of BURNT chips!,) I’m thrilled with these homemade Baked Sweet Potato Chips and am ready to add them to our football food rotation.

It takes a little time and love to make these babies, but they are truly a guilt free snack!

You start by thinly slicing the oven baked sweet potato chips with the mandolin.

Lightly coat the potato slices with olive oil and a dash of sea salt.

They slowly roast in the oven until they are dry and crispy!

The end result is something that is actually completely healthy and absolutely delicious!

Servings 4


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cut 1/8 inch thick
  • 1-2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Toss sweet potato in the sea salt and olive oil. Use just enough olive oil to coat them, without drowning them.
  • Roast in oven for 35-40 minutes, rotating racks and flipping the chips once.
  • Watch carefully because oven's vary. You just want to roast the moisture out of them!
  • Allow to cool and continue to crisp for 10 minutes before eating.


Keep an eye on the oven as thinner slices can burn quickly!

    These look so great…I always struggle to get my chips crispy. Yet another season to try again! Love all the sweet potato recipes today 🙂

      I found putting the over higher just burnt them and putting it lower just took way too long. This seems like the happy place 🙂 Have a great weekend!

    I don’t regularly watch football unless it just happens to be on and I need background noise! Your chips turned out so great! I love making my own sweet potato fries, but I need to try chips.

    I have been craving chips! I need to try this!

    So yummy – sweet potato and zucchini chips are some of my favorite snacks to make at home!

    • JulieWunder September 13, 2015 at 10:48 am - Reply

      Yum! Zucchini would be so good too! Have a great weekend!

    These look so good and easy to make! I have a hard time slicing my potatoes thin enough. I only watch football when my husband puts it on….I enjoy it but I can’t stay focused for a whole game:)

    I love, love, love making my own sweet potato chips! Even if I may accidentally cut off a finger or two trying to slice them really thin. I should just invest in a mandolin slicer!

    • JulieWunder September 11, 2015 at 9:44 am - Reply

      Yes! You need one! I can only imagine the cool things you would do with it!

    At my house we love college football and watch games for different schools based on WHOM we knew who went there… it works until two teams oppose each other-ouch!
    It is such a fun part of the season.
    These chips look great. I hope I can get them thin enough, tho’ no mandolin here and cannot wait till Christmas to try this.
    Thanks for sharing this yummy looking idea, Julie, the Gator Girl!

    I have never tried to make sweet potato chips before. In fact, I have a mandolin, but I never use it. Thanks for giving me a reason to break it out!

    • JulieWunder September 11, 2015 at 9:42 am - Reply

      Yes! I never used to use my mandolin, but I’m coming around lately!

    Definitely need to add these to our game day menu! We love sweet potato chips!

    These look amazing! 🙂

    I just emailed Lynne (my other half) to see if I can add a mandolin slicer to my Christmas list. Along with a spiralizer and everything else that’s on it. Lol!

    I can see how these would give Lynne’s potato chip habit, when she’s sitting watching the TV, a healthier twist! Thank you.:D

      haha! You will have all the best tools! I totally need a new blender– too many smoothies 🙂

    I really, really need a mandolin. Like, now! I want to eat these asap!

    • JulieWunder September 10, 2015 at 9:59 am - Reply

      I never thought I’d use one, but I love it. I do use the guard and protective gloves though– I’m clumsy 🙂

    Love sweet potato chips so I need to give these a try! I actually have some white sweet potatoes and may try it with those. As for football, I’m not a fan and don’t watch it. If hubby has it on, I’ve usually got my nose in a magazine or am online browsing Pinterest. 🙂

    • JulieWunder September 10, 2015 at 9:58 am - Reply

      haha! It is easy to get distracted. I can watch one game before I get up.

    I love making sweet potato chips like these! I have to say most times I end up with at least a few that are burnt to a crisp. I try my best not to burn them but it’s inevitable, haha.

    • JulieWunder September 10, 2015 at 9:55 am - Reply

      I don’t feel as bad then! I had the oven up too high at first!

  26. Blane Sherer September 10, 2015 at 5:10 am - Reply

    That’s a nice chip alternative.
    As for your question: yes I watch football ( College and Pro ).
    I am a sports fan in general including football.
