BBQ Sweet Potato Chips

Whadya  know, I actually made it to work today without my smoothie all over my face. I call that a huge success. I won’t mention that I spilled almond milk on my kitchen floor and knocked off the knob on my washing machine all within 5 minutes. If I told you that, then you’d all really think I’m a clutz.

So instead I’m going to share this BBQ sweet potato chip recipe with you, but I must warn you. You will not want to share them. I had every intention to do so yesterday at work, but it just didn’t happen.

I came across this recipe on Pinterest and shortly after decided to make them, with some slight modifications as usual. I wanted to simplify the recipe so that it used all common ingredients, and have measurements for you guys to follow. I wasn’t sure if they’d end up tasting more spicy than “BBQish”, but they ended up having that perfect BBQ chip flavor. I honestly couldn’t believe it. They tasted just like a store bought BBQ chip, but only 100 times healthier! That makes me SO happy :-)



The next time I make these, I will slice them even thinner. It’s best (and much easier) to use a mandoline slicer to get an even thickness (thinness?). I used two sweet potatoes and they filled up 5 dehydrator trays. These can be made in a dehydrator or an oven. If you want to bake these in the oven you’ll probably need just as many cookie sheets.

If I were you, I would make these tonight. Just saying!

Have you tried baked BBQ sweet potato chips before? Am I just late on the scene?

If I don’t talk to you guys tomorrow, have a great weekend!

BBQ Sweet Potato Chips
  • 2 sweet potatoes, sliced very thin (almost paper thin)
  • 3 Tbs olive oil, (coconut or grapeseed would work great too)
  • 2 Tbs honey, (I used raw)
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt (plus and extra pinch)
  1. Once the potatoes are sliced, melt the honey so it's thin,mix it with the oil and add a pinch of salt. Evenly mix the potatoes into the mixture. Spread the potato slices onto your dehydrator sheets or cookie sheets. If using cookie sheets, you might want to line them with parchment paper. Mix all of the seasonings together and sprinkle it over the potatoes. If you want and have the patience you can flip the potatoes and sprinkle more on the other side. I didn't do this.
  2. * To bake them in the oven there are two ways you could do it. Either bake them at 200 degrees for 50 minutes or at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes. If you do it at 200 degrees you will preserve more of the sweet potatoes nutritional content.
  3. Either way, they will be just as delicious!

    Yum! These look fantastic! I’d have to bake them as I don’t have a dehydrator. Don’t worry, we all go through phases where we makes messes and break things! :).

    Have a great weekend!

    Yum! These sound so, so good! I love anything barbecue flavored and sweet potatoes are one of my favorites! Can’t wait to combine the two in this delicious recipe!

    • Maria

  • StoriesAndSweetPotatoes

    Oh wow. I do have a fancy grater to get them that thin! I’ve never used it! 

    • Maria

      Mine was a cheapo $10 one and it did the job! I wouldn’t mind a nice on tho! ;-)

    These look great! Really…I’m practically drooling and spilling things just looking at them! I haven’t done BBQ flavored anything, but now I want to! I have a really fancy mandolin that was a gift, and I can’t figure out how to use it (I didn’t try hard)…I think I need to go to youtube and find a tutorial. Joe would love these chips, I’m sure of it!

    • Maria

      Lol I’m sure you or Joe can figure it out. Mines a $10 plastic one, but it works! John loved them so I’m sure Joe would too. He agreed that they should’ve been a little thinner.

    This recipe is a good reason to dust off the dehydrator. I haven’t used it for years.

    Who knew that such simple ingredients could looks so delicious. Your pictures are great, the potatoes are sliced perfectly and seasoned equally too. It really looks like store bought.

    I will bookmark this recipe. Thank you for sharing.
