- Bake chips in the oven for 10 minutes, flip, & roast another 10 minutes

You can make these homemade Sweet Potato chips as thick or as thin as you’d like. The thinner you cut them, the crispier they’ll be!
A few tips for making these baked chips:
I think I will make them a bit thinner next time I make these (I will be making these again…and again…and again). They worked out just fine at about 1/4 inch thick…but I think I would like them better if they were slightly thinner & crispier.
I found that after baking the potato chips in the oven for 10 minutes on each side, it worked best to then broil them on high for a couple minutes (watch them carefully or they will get really burnt). This just amps up the crispiness a bit and makes them even tastier!

Why are my Sweet Potato Chips not crispy?
If your Baked Sweet Potato Chips don’t come out crispy, they might be too thick or might be undercooked. You might like them a little thicker…like a sweet potato steak fry…it’s all up to you! But if it’s crispy you crave, make sure you’re cutting the chips SUPER thin and letting them cook long enough. You can even slide them under the broiler for a bit to crisp them up even more.
If you don’t have one, you should invest (they’re pretty inexpensive…between $19-99) in a mandoline slicer. You can slice all kinds of veggies super thin without fear of slicing off a finger or thump. Worth it if you ask me! Here are some of our favorite Mandoline Slicers. (I have the Air Kitchen Brand and like it quite a bit)
