    If you love potato chips but are looking for something more wholesome to add to your diet (let’s face it, there’s not a whole lot of good nutrition in potato chips), give these homemade sweet potato chips a try. The trick to getting them crispy is to slice as thin as possible!

    One medium sweet potato, peeled (about 10 ounces)
    2 teaspoons canola oil
    ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
    ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Spray a wire rack with nonstick cooking spray and set it over a large baking sheet. Set aside.
    2. Place the sweet potato on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to slice the sweet potato as thin as possible into 1/8th to 1/16th-inch-thick rounds.
    3. Place the potato rounds, oil, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl and toss until the sweet potatoes are evenly coated with the oil.
    4. Arrange on the prepared rack and bake until the edges just begin to brown, 20 to 22 minutes depending on the thickness of your potatoes. (If you use a mandoline slicer or food processor, your baking time may be as short as 10 minutes, so keep a watchful eye on the potatoes.) Allow chips to cool slightly before digging in.
