I’m not going to deny the awesomeness of potato chips. They certainly have their place in everyone’s diet at some point or other.
But potato chips pack in the fat, and they’re not exactly one of those foods that you can have a few of and then stop eating. So, my rule is that I should probably not even start eating them.
Every once in a while, though, I need to succumb to a salt craving.. Which is why I decided to make my own sweet potato chips! Sweet potatoes are fat free and full of fiber, potassium, and vitamin C. And they taste awesome, which is most important.
This weekend, I sliced some up (which is very difficult to do because they’re so hard, so I recommend some sort of slicing contraption), drizzled on some olive oil, added a healthy dose of salt, and baked.
Although they didn’t come as crispy as I would have liked and some just burnt to a crisp, the majority of them came out well and tasted great.
You can’t go wrong with these because 1) the fiber makes them super filling and 2) you know what’s in them since they’re homemade.
Definitely worth making another batch!
