Sweet Potato Chips

I have a weakness for fries and chips. Actually, anything with carbs. I always hear people cut out carbs to lose weight, which is true to a point. But it's good to know that there are good carbs and bad carbs. Luckily, these sweet potatoes are considered a good carb so you can eat them without feeling too guilty. Score!

I have been wanting to make these - I never would have thought to use coconut oil, but I LOVE that idea

These look wonderful! I LOVE sweet potato chips, I always substitute them for regular chips! I've made them at home a couple times but I never used coconut oil before! What a great idea! Thanks for sharing! :)

it seems there are so many great uses for coconut oil these day, Heather! We're glad you like this idea!

Maria, we know what you mean - sweet potato chips are definitely a step up from regular chips! And making them at home - you can't get much better!
