These sweet potato chips are a delicious and healthier alternative to regular potato chips! With minimal ingredients in this recipe, it can be a simple snack to make. You can make a big batch and save some for later or put into lunch bags. I like these sweet potato chips because they are made with coconut oil instead of an unhealthy oil like soy or canola.
Sweet Potato Chips fried with Coconut Oil
- Peel the skin off the sweet potatoes. Cut into thin slices. I used a small 6.5 inch cast iron skillet so that the potatoes could be fully submerged in the oil. If you are using a larger pan you may need to use more oil. Luckily, you can save your used oil for a later use! Just strain it through a cheesecloth to get any residue out.
- In a shallow pan heat the coconut oil. When it is hot put in a few sweet potato slices. Try not to overlap the slices to much or it may not fry properly. Fry for 3-5 minutes turning the slices over halfway through. Remove them when they look crispy, it’s best to eyeball it rather than adhere to a timer because cooking times can vary.
- Place on a paper towel to catch the excess oil. Sprinkle with salt. Enjoy your homemade sweet potato chips!
