Superbowl Snacks: Sweet Potato Chips

Yes. Two posts, one day. For the next 3 days. Gotta get you fed bros. potatoes. I love sweet potato fries. Sweet potato hash browns. Sweet potato hash. Sweet potato cakes. Sweet potato brownies…ahhh sh*t that was a good idea. Doin’ it. They are pretty much the best starch of all time. And they go with everything. Chocolate. Cheese. Meat. Almond butter. Sweet potatoes are the perfect food. Don’t fight me on this. You’ll lose.

Since most of us are in love with chowing down on chips at parties, these are an epic alternative. And way more delicious. I’m serious. Homemade chips are just way better. You could make beet chips too!! Then serve it with Roasted Red Pepper dip. Duh.

So you know how when you’re at a super bowl party and have to make some uncomfortable conversation with random awkward person in the room….I love awkward those people. I’m pretty overbearing to most people, especially awkward people. If people are uncomfortable around me, I’m really REALLY good at making them even more uncomfortable. Even more uncomfortable than this guy on the left side at 0:11 and 0:17 seconds. Watch him in this commercial. Seriously do it. I keep watching seconds 0:10 through 0:20 and laugh by myself. Then Laura will chime in with laughter. I heart her. I want to hold this man and make him feel less scared of the cameras that are video taping him. He’s an awkward turtle. I love him. I can’t wait to hang out with him at my Super Bowl party. With cheesy bread. Ok, everything I just said was a complete lie.  I would crap myself if I ate that cheesy bread. It might be worth it though. Especially if I was being forced to watch the super bowl.


Superbowl Snacks: Sweet Potato Chips

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4+ 1x


  • 4 sweet potatoes (try to grab skinny ones)
  • 23 tablespoons coconut oil
  • salt, to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Use a mandoline or a knife to cut your sweet potatoes thin. I’d say the thickness of a silver dollar or maybe a little thicker.
  3. Put some parchment paper down on a cooking sheet.
  4. Place sweet potato rounds on the parchment paper.
  5. Melt coconut oil and use a pastry/cooking brush to paint some coconut oil on top of each sweet potato round.
  6. Sprinkle salt on top.
  7. Place in the oven to bake for around 8-10 minutes.
  8. Flip sweet potatoes over and bake for another 5 minutes or until edges are brown and have curled up a bit.
  9. Let cool. Serve with Roasted Red Pepper dip.


If you make these chips too thick, they won’t crisp up. Too thin, and they will burn pretty quickly. Just beware.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. P.S. I haven’t had time to cook the past freakin’ three days- tomorrow is my first day off in eleven days, so I AM making your Cranberry Sweet Potato Breakfast Cakes today!!! …sorry, I’m a little dramatic bc I’m so effing tired right now.

  2. I didn’t even have to watch that vid of the cheesy logs…i knew EXACTLY what you were talking about LMAO. Mr. Awkward was the only thing i noticed in that commercial. So glad i’m not the only freak in this world that notices stupid sh!t.
    Thanks for the belly laugh!
    oh, and i will be making these chips this weekend. Not for the superbowl. I agree with you. Pro sports athletes make a disgusting amount of money…it’s not right with all the poverty in this country. Thats all i have to say about that.

  3. Wow, what I would give for some of these chips right now!! I need to be better about packing food for the work day. Thanks for the awesome recipe, looks amazing 🙂

  4. Well, my chips were a total fail, but they were still delicious bc, duh, they’re sweet potatoes! I used aluminum foil, instead of parchment paper- maybe that’s why? Only the nearly burnt ones were crispy…maybe I did too much oil? Either way, five stars bc the crispy ones were perfect with the dip! 😉

  5. WHY IS HE BEING PAID TO BE IN A COMMERCIAL?! well unless it’s so we can giggle at his awkwardness hahahahahhaha

    SWEET POTATO CHIPS – my new favorite thing. And i have a lot of faves on your blog!

  6. I’m waiting for that sweet potato brownie recipe. Last week I was thinking “OMG sweet potato brownies…I have to ask Juli to make these”. Then you bring up the awkward guy video. Every time that comes on, my daughters and I get a good laugh. AWKWARD. I feel awkward just watching it. OK…waiting on the brownies!

    1. Lol i’m going to make sweet potato brownies. it’s just a matter of time. maybe I’ll do it while the whole world is watching the superbowl! perfect timing.

  7. Ok, If I were at your house right now I would hug your neck! I have trying, trying, and trying to make good sweet potato chips and to no avail until NOW!!! Thank you for this recipe I am now going to enjoy these later with my husband! YOU ROCK!!
    When are you going to do a cookbook????

  8. OK…i made these over the weekend. EFFIN SWEET!!! i actually am not a fan of sweet potatoes, but these chips were awesome. Let me tell you how I made mine…first i tried frying a few on the stove top in coconut oil. YUM. Then, i had this brilliant idea. I was cooking bacon in the oven (only way i make it cause it comes out more delicious) i put the bacon on a rack on top of a lipped sheet pan place in the oven @ 350 until done to your preferred flexible-ness. ANYHOO, my brilliant idea? once the sheet pan had some grease drippings from the bacon on it, i added a little more coconut oil…then put the sliced sweet potatoes UNDER the bacon…BOOM!! thats right folks…sweet potato chips with bacon drippings…it was like Christmas in my mouth!! I don’t feel ridiculous being so excited about this on your blog…i am among others who worship the bacon. 🙂
    Just thought i would share.

    1. haha my friend just told me she’s made the sweet potato chips every day since I posted them. I’m kind of wishing I lived in your house right now. That all sounds amazing!!

  9. I don’t even like sweet potatoes so I’m not sure how this is possible…. but I LOVE THESE!

  10. I make bacon in the oven too, flat on a sheet pan. I just so happened to have made some bacon right before I saw this recipe. So I sliced up a sweet potato and tossed them on the bacon greased sheet, and flipped them over to cover both sides. They came out great! Now I need to work on my knife skills. Seriously need a mandolin. And a food processor. And a drink.

  11. I am obsessed with food, yet extremely lazy and cheap when it comes to preparing meals. When I become a billionaire, I will be hiring my very own personal paleo chef. I love your recipes, and the more simple the better!

  12. These saved several allergy-ridden folks at a recent party that couldn’t eat anything else. You are awesome (as usual).

    How do you store the leftovers? I tried putting some in a Baggie to eat in the morning and they turned totally soggy….please help!!

  14. Made these last night. Sweet potato chips, good. Roasted Red Pepper dip, good. Chip with the Dip, AMAZING. How could it be that good?
    And the video. So funny! Had to watch it over and over!

  15. Hi, I have made sweet potato chips a lot in the past but they always take forever?! Is it the parchment paper? Mine always taste wonderful but they take more like 45 or more? I’m wondering what I’m doing wrong? I don’t have parchment or I would make them right now and see if that is the trick, going to be getting some to try 🙂 Thanks!

  16. You’re sweet potato chips look great. The sweet potatoes that are grown here in Hawaii are actually purple sweet potatoes. As the name suggests they are a deep purple. I also like the idea of the sweet potato dip. You can make everything with just a few ingredients!

    1. i wouldn’t recommend storing these for very long, they get soggy pretty easily. in a paper bag on the counter would work best

      1. Thanks Juli! Unfortunately it was too late when I read this and I stored them in Tupperware = fail. I hope I can bring them back to life by putting them back in the oven!
