Sweet Potato Chips

I love the night. I seem to be motivated by darkness. I'm not sure when that love came about. Night is when the peak of my creativity happens. Night is when my motivation peaks. I get motivated to do everything - cook, blog, exercise, organize, create…


If I had it my way, I'd stay up until 4am, just doing all the things I want to do. I'd probably have so many creative projects done, and more scrapbooks complete than I had room for, a spotless house, 2 weeks worth of blog posts scheduled and a freezer full of all kinds of homemade goodies. Unfortunately it's not that way though, because I have work normal life stuff to do during the day. It's okay though. :) Every once in a while I stay up late just to get in some creative time. I sometimes need an extra coffee the next morning but I seem to do my best work when the darkness strikes. It's worth it.

Okay…so that little blurb has absolutely nothing to do with the recipe that I'm going to share with you but that's okay. I wasn't sure what to write about these Sweet potato chips other than


They are super super simple to make. The recipe calls for maple syrup and cayenne pepper. The combination of the sweet and salty gives your taste buds a nice kick. Here's the recipe if you want to make them yourself.

Sweet and Spicy Sweet potato Chips

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375°. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Cut sweet potatoes as thin as possible. Use a slicer for best results to get crispy chips. Place in a ziplock bag; add remaining ingredients. Shake like crazy to coat. Place pototaotes on prepared cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes until crispy, flipping once.



  1. I have never tried anything other baked sweet potatoes. Hubby will definitely want to give this a try!

    I am with you the late night owl time creativity!
