Crunchy Sweet Potato Chips

I recently got a food dehydrator and decided to make some healthy snacks with it. For instance, I made some apple fruit leather and some strawberry fruit leather that the kiddos took for their school snacks.  So easy to make and the best part was that I know exactly what was put into them. Tasty AND healthy!

So, when I was wandering through the produce section, I saw these big sweet potatoes and it got me thinking about crispy chips! Of course, thinking about sweet potato chips made me want them. 

I sliced the sweet potatoes on the mandolin so they were very thin.   

Then I placed them on the dehydrator trays and sprinkled them with pink Himalayan sea salt. In to the dehydrator they went.    

155* for 3 hours and voila! Crispy sweet potato chips that are not only tasty, but healthy, too.   

There were so many sweet potato slices that they didn’t all fit on the dehydrator trays. What to do, what to do? How about using the microwave to make some of the chips? 

  The end result was a bit different. They browned up some, not such a pretty melon-orange  color like the dehydrator chips. They were also a little cheesy, not so crispy.  
 In the end, I preferred the dehydrator chips, but 3 minutes in the microwave is so much faster if you’re in need of an immediate reward.
