I was looking for a healthier alternative to the chewy/crunchy/gooey/yummy part of traditional candied sweet potatoes and stumbled upon these. This low-sugar version of sweet potatoes (also known as a superfood for its high nutritional value) can be eaten as a side dish or snacked on straight out of the fridge (even better, I think). Great for kids, too.

  • Mix sweet potato slices, oil, sugar, and salt together in a bowl. Arrange slices evenly on a baking sheet, preferably all laying flat.

  • Bake in the top third of the preheated oven until tops are barely browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Flip over each slice. Continue baking until toasted on top, 10 to 15 minutes more. Immediately unstick slices from the pan. Serve warm or cool.

Cook's Note:

Some slices may brown more quickly depending on their thickness. Don't let the darker areas disturb you; these will offer a unique and appealing flavor and texture. In my opinion they are even tastier after they have been refrigerated for a day or so.
