One thing that I hope to make soon is a flavored coconut butter to snack on here and there when I feel a need for some easy fat. But, in the meantime, I made up a batch of these chips yesterday and it was so good that I made a second one for dinner! Yuuuuuuuum! Yesterday was the first night that I didn't end up craving anything and I also had no trouble falling asleep. Those are signs for my body that I gave it what it needed.
Anyway, these chips are delish. Quick and easy to make with a mandolin, so you can have a snack ready in about 30 minutes. Or maybe plan ahead and have it ready and waiting, if you're prepared like that! I served these up with an easy dip made up of my AIP/vegan mayo, garlic sauce, and fresh dill and it was absolutely perfect.
Easy Baked Sweet Potato Chips (AIP / Paleo / Vegan)
Makes about 30 chips
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
1 medium sized sweet potato (wider, shorter ones work best)
1 tbsp avocado oil
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a metal baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice the sweet potato into very thin rounds using a mandolin. Toss with the oil and a liberal amount of salt.
2. Bake for 10 minutes. Flip and bake for an additional 10 minutes. I check after 5 minutes for any brown chips and pull them out so they don't burn. When done, toss with more sea salt and flavoring a of your choice.
Examples: garlic powder and tumeric (as pictured below), garlic powder and oregano, garlic powder and dill, etc.
