The best thing about homemade kids snacks is that you can tailor the content to meet your little one's tastes. Sweet potato chips that you make at home are a great alternative not only to potato chips, but even the sweet potato chips you might buy at the store. They are super-easy to make and pack a real nutrition punch -- they are loaded with vitamins A and C. Serve them at snack time or even as a side dish with lunch or dinner.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 or 3 sweet potatoes, washed
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and/or other seasonings, to taste -- suggestions: garlic, brown sugar, paprika, chili powder

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
Prepare the sweet potatoes. You can leave the skin on if you choose, but in any case, make slices to about 1/8" thick. Place in a large bowl with the oil and any seasonings. Toss to coat.
Spread the slices in a single layer on the cookie sheet.
Bake for about 15 minutes until they are golden brown. Turn halfway through the baking time.
Carefully spread the baked chips on a paper towel to drain any excess oil.
Baked sweet potato chips can be stored up to a week in an airtight container.
