  • Baking sheet


  • 2-3 medium Sweet potatoes
  • Quality sea salt

Optional Toppings ideas

  • Fresh blueberries and raspberries
  • Nut or sun butter
  • Chia seeds
  • Hemp hearts


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a large baking tray with parchment paper or a silpat.
  • Wash and dry potatoes. Leave the skin on, this is edible!
  • Evenly slice the potatoes into ¼ inch pieces.
  • Place on the parchment paper, lightly sprinkle with salt.
  • Bake for about 25 to 35 minutes, you will want them to dry on the surfaces a bit and be fork tender-but not mushy.
  • Remove from the tray and enjoy a few pieces topped with some of your favorites on hand and let the rest of the slices cool completely before placing in the fridge to use within 4 days or the freezer to use within 1 month.
  • When ready to enjoy the chilled or frozen pieces, simply pop one into each toaster spot and reheat or they can be warmed in a pan. Top and enjoy!


Cooking Note: there are many recipes out there claiming the sweet potato slices can be put right into the toaster while raw, but I found they will not actually be able to cook through that way. A toaster oven might be a better bet for trying that but would likely still take more time than using a conventional oven.
Slices per Sweet Potato: A medium sweet potato is about 5-inches long and 2-inches wide yielding 4 slices. If using sweet potatoes this size as recommended the recipe should yield 12 slices of 'toast'. 
TIP: How to Slice: use a large sharp knife of a mandoline (preferred).
Cooking Time: the cooking time will vary based on thickness of the slice. 25-35 minutes is the expected range for cooking the sweet potato slices.
