Baked Sweet Potato Chips Recipe

Baked sweet potato chips recipe

Sweet potato chips are one of my all-time favorite snacks. I like to make this homemade oven-baked version when I have a little extra time.

They’re super healthy (superfood, anyone?) and not loaded with unhealthy oils like store-bought sweet potato chips.

Since these are baked with a little olive oil, they still turn out crisp and delicious.

How Many Potatoes Should I Use?

One large sweet potato is enough for a hearty snack for one – which makes for a pretty cheap snack recipe.

I sometimes buy a bag of sweet potatoes, which is generally cheaper than purchasing them individually. But no matter how you buy them, sweet potatoes are generally an inexpensive food item.

How To Get Super Thin Potato Slices

You will want to use a mandoline slicer to thinly and uniformly slice the potatoes for this recipe.

I use my mandoline slicer to slice all sorts of produce like cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, onions, and apples. Remember to be extremely careful when using a mandoline, because you’re working with a very sharp blade.

You could also use the blade tool on a food processor to get thin slices.

If  sweet potatoes aren’t your thing, try these homemade potato chips (instructions included for making them in the microwave, oven, and deep fryer).

Baked Sweet Potato Chips

I used Pampered Chef's Chipotle Rub to season these chips. You could use a combination of sea salt, garlic powder, and chili powder - or your own favorite spice blend.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 18 minutes


  • 1 large sweet potato or yam
  • Olive oil
  • Spice blend (see note above)


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Place a large baking sheet in the oven as it heats.
  2. Peel the sweet potato. Adjust the mandoline slicer to the thinnest or second thinnest setting (I used the second thinnest setting, which made the chips a little thicker and more dip-worthy).
  3. Place sweet potato slices in a large bowl. Pour in some olive oil (a tablespoon or a little more per potato) and stir to coat potato slices.
  4. Take the hot baking sheet out of the oven. Place potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet, avoiding overlapping. Sprinkle with desired spice blend. Place in oven and bake for approximately 8 to 10 minutes, or until sweet potato chips are crisp and slightly browned. Your baking time may vary depending on your oven, so be sure to check chips around the 5 minute mark.
  5. Serve with your choice of dip. I used a dip made of sour cream, mayonnaise, and adobo sauce from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.

    Getting the cookie sheet hot before putting the chips on it is a great idea. I’ve been trying to make the perfect sweet potato chip but I always get a mix of burned and soggy.

    I liked you on fb. My favorite snack at the moment in watermelon or cherry tomatoes since they are abundant in the garden. I make baked sweet potatoes all the time…it’s sort of an obsession but i never thought of making chips. Time to switch things up a bit.

    I tried the recipe but the potato never got crispy. What did I do wrong????

    • Haley replied: — June 15th, 2014 @ 9:53 pm

      Sorry to hear that Whitney! I would guess that you didn’t bake them long enough. When I have made these in the past, there is a fine line between a just-right chip and one that is burnt. So you really have to watch the oven and bake them right up until they are golden brown. I hope your next attempt goes better than the first 🙂
