Crispy Sweet Potato Chips with Cinnamon

I saw a recipe for sweet potato chips on Pinterest and knew I had to try them. Isn’t Pinterest the best?? The recipe I came across called for orange zest and thyme, both of which I did not have in the house. So, I decided to make some sweet sweet potato chips by using a little cinnamon. I googled “sweet potato chips with cinnamon” and found tons of recipes, all calling for brown or white sugar and butter or honey. I really wanted a healthier, lighter version, so I just left those ingredients out. These were SO easy and so delicious, I could have eaten 100 of them.What you’ll need:

  • 1 large sweet potato (I used a very skinny, long potato and ended up with little chips)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • as much cinnamon as you like!

What you’ll do:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat a cookie sheet with a thin layer of the olive oil. Slice the sweet potato into very thin slices (a mandolin would work best, but I didn’t have one of those either). Place the potato slices on a baking sheet in a single layer. Brush the slices with olive oil and then sprinkle with as much cinnamon as you prefer and bake for about 20-30 minutes until the edges curl up on.

The result – crispy on the outside, warm and soft on the inside, deliciously sweet chips. The key  was slicing the potato incredibly thin. Since I didn’t have a mandolin some of my chips were thicker and didn’t cook as well. The thinner the chip, the better it tasted.

I might have to make these again tonight..ya know, to really perfect the recipe :)

Enjoy!

  1. Very yummy looking… we will have to try. I’ve done sweet potato chips with sea salt and cracked pepper… really like those.

    For ‘sweet’ without the sugar, what about mixing a little raw honey with the olive oil and brushing that on, and then sprinkle the cinnamon? I’m thinking of trying either that or mix a little stevia with the cinnamon.
