Healthy sweet potato chips


Recipe Description
All the salty goodness of a potato chip without the grease and fat! (This recipe can also be made with regular potatoes, but you'd want to rinse them after blanching.)​
Preparation Steps:
Spray dehydrator tray with non-stick spray.
Peel potatoes.
Slice thinly (I used a vegetable parer.)
Steam-blanch for 5 minutes.​
Level of Difficulty:
Easy​
Time Needed:
15 min + drying time​
Ingredients:
Sweet potatoes
Olive oil non-stick cooking spray
Sea salt (fine)​
Serves:
Depends on qty and size of potatoes used​
Directions:
Place potato slices on prepared tray.
Spray slices lightly with olive oil non-stick cooking spray.
Sprinkle salt to taste over slices.
Dehydrate at 135F for approx 1 hour or until desired crispness. Slices will crisp a bit more after cooling.​

I'll have to try these. I love baking sweet potato chips in my oven, but they don't last.

oh thanks ! I was taking inventory of my fridge and trying to figure out what snacks I could make for the kids this week. I have .25 in my wallet and 5 days tell payday. The only thing I have plenty of is potatoes. I will get started on this right NOW!

Hmm...I wonder how baking these would fare if you didn't have a dehydrator? Was funny, I was sitting here reading and wondering if you were eating raw but dehydrated potatoes til I re-read it and saw that it said 'steam blanch'

This sounds like a wonderful alternative :) Thanks for sharing!!
