If you follow me on Instagram, you know these are a family fave in our home! I love that they are packed with nutrition and super easy to make and my kids love that they resemble chips.
Sweet potatoes are a great source of beta carotene which is an antioxidant and also a precursor for vitamin A in our body. Vitamin A is important in the health of our eyes, bones, and skin, and also plays a role in gene expression and cell differentiation. This means that it supports each type of cell to mature adequately and perform a particular function properly.
Here is the quick and easy recipe that will have your kids asking for this amazing veg!
1 Tbsp. avocado oil or grapeseed oil
1. Peel sweet potato and then slice it thinly…about 2 mm per slice.
2. Place on baking sheet. I like to use my stone as it allows for a crisper chip I find.
3. Drizzle oil over the potato slices.
4. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. You need to watch them closely so they crisp up but do not burn. I have learned from experience that this can be a thin line.
Well that’s it! So easy!!! You and your minis can enjoy these as a side with salmon, a burger, or BBQ chicken, or with a salad.
Until next time…stay healthy!
