Healthy Chips

Once you have tried this double delicious recipe as a replacement for chips you will never feel guilty for eating chips again!

2 Medium White Potatoes or a few small ones
One medium Sweet Potato
Olive oil(rapeseed oil alternatively)
Spelt Flour or Wholewheat Flour (optional)

Peel and cut the potatoes into chunks, shape doesn't matter the more roughly cut the better! Drizzle with a little olive oil - you don't have to drench them. (If you want, sprinkle over some spelt or wholemeal flour - just a small hand full you do NOT need to coat the potatoes You don't have to use any flour if you don't want to.)
Drizzle some olive oil into a baking tray and put into a hot oven for 5 - 10 minutes until hot. When hot add your potatoes and cook for 10 minutes or so - pull them out and use a spatula to move them around a little, sprinkle more olive oil then put them back in the oven for another 5 - 10 minutes or until they are golden or too your liking. Don't worry if some stick to the tray sometimes perfection is in the home cooked look! Add sea salt if you wish, maybe some chili sauce too! Enjoy!

Hi Jeena,

I used to make something similar to this but it's been a few years since I've done it! Reading your recipe is making me crave sweet potatoes though so I think I'll make some soon! Thanks!
