Baked Sweet Potato Chips Recipe

Lately I’ve been buying bags of gourmet vegetable chips to serve with dips at cocktail parties and neighborhood gatherings.

After all, they’re colorful, uniquely flavored, and seem to be appreciated by friends with certain food allergies.

After looking back at my grocery receipts over the last few weeks, it occurred to me that I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of money on fancy chips this month. Yikes!

How To Make Sweet Potato Chips

1. Slice the sweet potatoes very thin on a mandolin slicer. You can use a standard chef’s knife to cut the sweet potatoes, but it’s much faster on a mandolin. You can also choose to slice your sweet potatoes thicker for sturdier chips, but they will take a little longer to bake.

Using a vegetable peeler is a good way to make them very thin and evenly sliced. (I like mine super thin and crispy.)

2. Place the sweet potato slices in a large bowl and drizzle olive oil over the top. Toss the slices with your hands to make sure every single slice is kissed with oil on both sides.

3. Lay the sweet potato slices on baking sheets in a single layer.

4. Lightly sprinkle the unbaked chips with Diamond Crystal® Kosher Salt. The kosher salt flakes are large and flat, so they hold tight to the oiled chips and offer great salty flavor that brings out each chip’s natural sweetness.

5. Bake!

Once they are baked, the sweet potato chips are light and crispy with an intense salty-sweet flavor.

You can store them in an air-tight container for lunchbox snacks all week, pack them in spring picnic baskets, or serve them at parties.

Trouble Shooting: Why Are My Sweet Potato Chips Burnt or Soggy?

The three most common issues with making baked vegetable chips at home is the tendancy for them to either stay soggy in the middle, or burn quickly and turn dark.

Want to avoid these issue? I can help!

  • Slice the Sweet Potatoes Evenly. The sweet potatoes must be very thin and evenly sliced to baked properly. If you have uneven sweet potaoto rounds you are more likely to deal with over or under cooking issues. Using a mandoling slicer is the best way to ensure even slicing. You can also use a vegetable peeler to make thin even slices
  • Check your Oven Thermometer. The most common issue when baking or roasting anything, is a faulty thermometer (or thermostat) on you oven. It is not unusual for oven thermometers to run 10-30 degrees too hot or too cool, especially if you use your broiler or self-cleaning oven function. Over time, high temperatures damage the thermometer or thermostat, causing this fluxuation in the oven temperature. You can correct the temperature by hanging a new oven thermometer from the middle oven rack. Then once the oven is preheated, adjust the temperature as needed. If you use your oven a lot, change out the hanging thermometer once a year.
  • Don’t Over-Stuff the Oven. Even if your oven temperature is exact, if you put too many baking sheet in the oven at once, each pan will take longer to bake. Placing more than one pan in the oven at a time, also creates more opportunity for uneven baking.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line several baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Use a mandolin slicer to cut the sweet potatoes into paper-thin rounds. (I set mine to the thinnest setting.) You can use a knife to do this, but it takes much longer.
  • Pile all the sweet potato rounds into a large bowl and pour the olive oil over the top. Gently toss to coat every piece with oil. Then lay the sweet potato rounds out on the baking sheets in a single layer.
  • Sprinkle the chips lightly with Diamond Crystal® Kosher Salt. Bake for 20-25 minutes until crisp and golden around the edges. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets. Then move the chips to a bowl, or plastic bag to store. If you happen to find a few chips with soft centers, pop them back in the oven for about 5 minutes.

Notes

Sweet potato chips go from perfect to burnt very quickly. Start watching each batch at the 20 minute mark and remove them the moment they look 90% crispy. They will continue to crisp up as they cool.

  1. Your potato chips looks yummmmmm :D I always like sweet potato chips than whit potato chips . Baked potato chips are healthier , so you can eat as much as you want like me ;)

  2. I agree, 300 is the way to go. I tried 325 and they started to burn. I used flavored olive oil (orange) and that gave an extra yummy taste to the chips.

  4. This is really good

  5. amazing, people always say dry the potato before baking, but not drying them made them even more crisp.

  7. Ok ladies, I did it! I put my oven on 300 and did 10 minutes, flip, another 10 min and flip again and maybe 3 more min. I put the “chips” on parchment and brushed with olive oil, seasoned with sea salt, onion powder and Smokey paprika, flipped and repeated. These came out perfect. Not burnt At all. Try it.

  9. Which mandoline did you use for sweet potato? Sweet potato is hard veggie, so commercial grade mandoline i am looking to buy, please let me know your choice..

  10. If there were negative stars, I would rate that👎🏻👎🏻
    This was awful. Each batch I tried turned black around the edges within less than 10 minutes. Tried 2 ovens, 3 different temps, and times all over the place.  I just do not see how anyone got the results you pictured. I HATE false advertising. Plus I was really looking forward to these😫

    • Hi Gennie,

      I’m so sorry you had a bad experience! I will say I made a batch of this exact recipe this weekend and they turned out perfectly.

      I would suggest you buy an oven thermometer to hang off your oven rack to ensure an accurate read on the temperature. It’s VERY common for ovens to run too hot or too cool. My ovens are new and I still do this to try to make sure I’m giving the best recipe instructions. I even buy new thermometers every 6 months to keep them accurate.

      Also, your oven could have hot spots… If you think this might be an issue, try making these with the convect setting to circulate the air in the oven.

  15. I followed the recipe to the letter and it didn’t work for me. I used my mandoline to get thin slices, exactly like in the photo. Tossed in olive oil and made sure all were thoroughly coated. Put slices so they didn’t overlap, on parchment paper. First batch went into a 400 degree regular oven (an independent oven thermometer confirmed temp.) Each chip ended up burnt on one half and the other half was still soft before the 20 minutes were up. Had leftover slices for a 2nd batch so this time went to 350 degrees. At 20 minutes they were still soft so went a couple more minutes while watching them. Went they started burning along one edge, took them out but they were still limp. Only only thing crispy were the burnt parts. Never curled or crisped up like in the photo. Don’t know how you got them that way.

  16. These are so delicious!

  17. These are staple in our house! I love how crispy they get!

  18. So thin, crispy and delicious!

  19. I loved this! Such a healthy and easy to make snack!

  20. A nice change from sweet potato fries! They were delicious!!

  21. The mandolin makes all the difference, thin is best!

  22. Several sweet potatoes and some good olive oil down the drain, I’ve deduced that no functioning oven in the world could produce these results. 

    400 degrees: burnt garbage by minute 12. 

    350 degrees: burnt garbage at around minute 16. 

    300 degrees seems to be the sweet spot, at a little over 20 minutes – not burnt garbage. I watched them like a hawk, and set a stop watch.  

    Another note – a baking rack on top of a baking sheet works better, not parchment paper. One side would burn more if I didn’t. 

    I used a mandolin on the thinnest setting, as stated. These are incredibly delicate and cook extremely fast. If you go by the recipe – dump them in a bowl and toss to coat the olive oil – you get very uneven results in the same batch. A careful coating with an olive oil spray bottle would be incredibly helpful. 

    Also, you have to be sure to get discs of the same size in the same batch.

    Unless my oven, and several other commenters ovens are actually crematorium ovens, I don’t see how the temps could be so off. Even if they run hot, lowering it by 100 degrees was the only way to get results. 

    If you have wayyyyyyy more time to dedicate to this, these might be something I make more often. But it’s not as easy as this recipe makes them sound. 

    • Thank you so much! Your comment was so VERY helpful!!!

    • Thank you! That’s seem to be a solution! I got mine burned to- yeah, approximately after 10-12 minutes:( 

    • I do zucchini chips this way as a healthy snack alternative, but I do them at 225 to 250 degrees. Takes a little longer, but they do not burn. I will try these sweet potato chips the same way. I DO use the spray bottle of olive oil and follow up with a pastry brush to make sure the surfaces are all coated. I also use home made chili powder in a light sprinkle when I want a different flavor!

  60. I do not have a mandolin slicer. No, I am not going to run right out and buy one either just for this .
    I think just a regular knife
    will do the trick with these sweet potatoes. so that is what I am going to use to slice the sweet potatoes. and I do not have several baking sheets, I only have a few.

  62. I had these at a friend’s house and they were delicious. I tried making them and they burned after 10 minutes. Any suggestions? 

    • Hi Miriam,

      Oh no! How thin did you cut the sweet potatoes? That might effect the outcome. You might also want to check your oven’s accuracy with an added oven thermometer.

    • What kind of mandolin do you use. I want one that cut sweet potatoes, potatoes and zucchnni. I want to make chips and also cut thicker slices of sweet potatoes for casseroles. Is there a better one for these tasks.

      Thanks,
      Andrea

  63. Hello from Australia!  Just wondering if you’ve tried making your sweet potato or beetroot chops using oil spray, rather than oil?  

  64. Is it ok to bake 2 trays at the same time? Do they get the crispy texture?

  65. For some reason most of mine got burnt before the 20min was up!  Did I do something wrong?  Help!

    I tried this recipe tonight and followed it to the letter and they came out burned on half of the chip and almost a normal color on the other half (same side of the chip, not top side and bottom).

    Have you experienced this? What did you do to remedy it?

    • Hi Jennifer,

      Oh no! I’m sorry to hear that. Two things come to mind… Did you use parchment paper on your baking sheets? It really does help even out the cooking. Second, you may need to get an oven thermometer to hang from your oven rack. It sounds like your oven may run a little hot.
