Why should you occasionally include sweet potatoes in your diet? Well, sweet potatoes are filled with vitamins B6, C and D as well as iron, magnesium and potassium. Not to mention they are lower on the glycemic index than regular potatoes, so your blood sugar won’t spike rapidly after enjoying a few sweet potato crinkles.
I feel good serving these to my active and growing 7 and 5 year old, since it provides them with much needed complex carbohydrates. And it’s great to have a vegetable dish that they gobble down and ask for more of!
Unlike the sweet potato chips you buy from the store, these are baked and not fried.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with coconut oil.
- Using your Mandolin Slicer with the crinkle cut blade, slice the entire sweet potato at the thinnest setting.
- In a medium bowl toss the sweet potato slices with coconut oil and season with salt, cinnamon and allspice.
- Spread the slices over the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, or until cooked through and slightly crunchy.
