Crispy Crunchy Air-Fryer Sweet Potato Chips
These crispy sweet potato chips are an irresistible crave-worthy perfect treat!
I get a craving for something salty and crunchy almost daily, and a handful of these chips do the trick every time!
Bonus points (that I likely wouldn’t get from processed store-bought potato chips) for the boost of nutrition and fiber!
A perfect snack in my opinion, because snacks *MUST* be super satisfying and fun to eat!
🍠Sweet Potatoes and Yams are something we eat A LOT of at our house!
It’s funny because about 10 years ago I didn’t care for them AT ALL.
Throughout my 30s I began passionately learning about health & nutrition while working with a phenomenal fitness trainer.
Sweet potatoes were becoming THE complex carbohydrate of choice!
They were *always* on my meal plans – so that’s when I got creative and started roasting them, eating them frequently, and actually TRULY ENJOYING them.
It really comes down to being open to just *trying* something and also having some great recipes that deliver tasty results!
Not a week goes by these days that I don’t purchase and cook sweet potatoes or yams…they have become an absolute staple in our home.
This recipe is awesome if you’re trying to include sweet potatoes more often, but just need a tasty recipe – along with a little friendly nudge to try something different!
Complex Carbohydrates from Sweet Potatoes are my favorite carbohydrates to eat because they leave me feeling really good and full of energy thanks to the fiber content rather than the opposite feelings of bloat, blood sugar spiking rollar coaster ride and tiredness that follows many simple carbs seem to deliver.
🍠 Sweet potatoes are considered a “superfood” because of all the vitamins and minerals they contain.
🍠 Just as an example, 1 sweet potato contains almost 400% of your daily vitamin A requirements!
🍠 They also contain vitamins B, C, and D as well as a wide range of minerals.
🍠 They can help boost your immune system, protect your vision and reproductive health, and even help lower your risk of cancer.
Sweet potatoes are excellent for digestion because they are rich in fiber – now that’s something you’re likely not going to get from grocery store potato chips.
Plus, they appear to help improve blood sugar control and cholesterol levels … and might even help keep fat cells from growing.
They are also delicious mashed, roasted, cut into fries, and baked or air-fried like these sweet potato chips.
Use sweet potatoes and yams in soups, stews, chilis, or in any way you would use other potatoes.
