Homemade Dehydrator Sweet Potato Chips are easy to make and only need 3 clean ingredients!
They are an excellent alternative to unhealthy and processed store-bought potato chips like Doritos, Fritos, and Cheetos. Even store-bought sweet potato chips can contain canola oil, which is a GMO crop. When you make homemade chips, you have control over the ingredients used to make them.
I love to use my faithful dehydrator (that I’ve owned for over 10+ years!) because I can make healthy raw snacks at home Raw Cacao Pecan Creme Mini Sandwich Cookies, Clean Eating Cinnamon Vanilla Apple Chips, Raw Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Pear Chips, Cheezy Raw Kale Chips, Raw Vegan Carrot and Flax Crackers.
This Dehydrator Sweet Potato Chip recipe is really simple and takes less than 10 minutes to prepare but when they’re done dehydrating, you’ll have a nice salty and crunchy snack that is great to eat alone or perfect to pair with a healthy, homemade dip.
It’s a great way to use your sweet potatoes from your local farmer’s market when they are in season!

Tip #1: Make sure you use a good mandoline slicer and cut them on the thinnest setting. I have found sweet potato chips can end up too hard if they are cut thick, which I have done in the past using a regular knife.
Tip #2: Approximately (1) medium/large sweet potato will fill up (2) dehydrator trays.
Tip #3: I’ve made them with and without the skins on and both ways will work fine.
Tip #4: You can make these even healthier by using purified / filtered water (I use a Berkey water filter) instead of the avocado oil. Instead of tossing the sliced sweet potato slices with the avocado oil, just add enough water to them (2 – 4 tablespoons) so that the Himalayan pink salt will stick to them. After tossing them with the water, drain any excess water from your bowl before adding the salt to them.
