So, I guess you could say that our family is crazy about potato chips. We just love them. And that's a problem because potato chips are anything but healthy. Especially when you read the calorie content on the back of the bag! I've long been searching for an alternative and I just might have found them in this recipe for baked sweet potato chips.

You can eat them plain, toss on a bit of seasoning, or create a creamy dip with low fat Greek yogurt and chives. Yummy right? Serve them as a snack or alongside their favorite sandwiches. They also go great packed up and sent in a lunch bag for school. Here's how you make them:



Baked Homemade Sweet Potato Chips

Prep Time:  5 minutes     Cook Time:  13-14 minutes     Makes:  4 Servings

Served best warm and right out of the oven, sweet potato chips are a simple, wholesome snack your kids will love. Baking on aluminum foil ensures your chips won’t get stuck to the baking sheet—and clean up will be fast and easy!


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed and sliced 1/8 inch thick using a mandolin, box grater or knife
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • BBQ spice rub or Parmesan cheese (optional)



  1. PRE-HEAT oven to 450oF.
  2. LINE two 10x15-inch baking sheets with Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil.
  3. DIVIDE sliced sweet potatoes among baking sheets ensuring potatoes are not stacked.
  4. BRUSH both sides of sliced sweet potatoes with olive oil.


  1. Bake 13-14 minutes until edges are brown. Remove chips with crispy brown edges and continue baking other chips, checking constantly and removing as edges brown.
  2. SPRINKLE with salt and serve in basket. Add fun flavorings your family loves, like BBQ spice rub or Parmesan cheese.

REYNOLDS KITCHENS TIP: No more greasy pans with these Homemade Sweet Potato Chips! Use aluminum foil so your potatoes won’t stick. When you’re finished, just toss the foil for easy cleanup.
