Make Your Own Microwave Sweet Potato Chips

If you like the crunch of sweet potato chips but want them without the oil, consider making your own in the microwave.

Microwaving dehydrates the potato, which makes for a crunchy chip without the greasy residue.

Making your own sweet potato microwave chips is easy, all you need to do is:

  • Use a mandoline or thinly slice sweet potatoes into rounds (long, tubular shaped potatoes make for the crispiest chip)
  • Cut a piece of parchment paper about the size of your microwave circular plate
  • Spread sweet potatoes in single layer on parchment and place in microwave
  • Microwave on hi for 6-8 minutes, watching closely and stopping heat as soon as chips start to darken in color
  • Spray chips with olive oil spray and salt to taste

Sweet potatoes are a nutritional powerhouse, containing high amounts of potassium and vitamin A.

A medium sized sweet potato (2″ in diameter and 5″ long) gets you 4 grams of fiber for just 110 calories.

Finally, a DIY crispy, crunchy snack you can feel good about!

    How would you get carbs for sweet potato chips? It would be different after dehydration would it not? I am diabetic and do carbs to units(insulin) Got the fiber on this need the carb so I can subtract this from it. Thanks
