Sweet Potato Chips

Homemade Sweet Potato Chips

  • 2 or 3 sweet potatoes cut thin (I used a mandolin for this)
  • About 2 tbsp. of coconut oil (more or less)
  • Salt to taste


  1. Using a mandolin slice the sweet potatoes as thin as possible.
  2. Place them in a bowl and cover them with water allowing them to soak for one hour. Drain and replace with fresh water after 30 minutes.
  3. Place on a towel and let them dry.
  4. Put about half of the sliced potatoes into a bowl and pour enough coconut oil to coat them evenly. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.
  5. Place the chips on the dehydrator trays and sprinkle with salt or you choice of seasoning.
  6. Place the sweet potatoes into a dehydrator and dehydrate at 145-155 F for about 6 hours.
  7. Check them occasionally and turn the dehydrator off when they are crispy.
  8. Let them cool.
  9. Enjoy!
