Cinnamon and sweet potatoes.
A match made in heaven, no?
Though I love sweet potatoes, I’ve never been a fan of the classic brown sugar, marshmallow, and butter combinations. Honestly, the thought of marshmallows and sweet potatoes just makes me want to puke.
But cinnamon, oh cinnamon, well that’s a different story. I absolutely adore cinnamon and sweet potatoes together. Whether it’s sweet, savory, or something in the middle, it disappears into my belly right away.
Last weekend I had some free time and a bunch of sweet potatoes. Insert sweet potato chips.
I didn’t want plain old sweet potato chips, though. Nope, I wanted something special. So I added cinnamon.
And can I just say: YUM.
This cinnamon added just the right of sweetness to the already sweet sweet potato, and the sprinkle of salt I also added balanced out everything with just a touch of savoury.
Perfection in a chip.
Cinnamon Sweet Potato Chips
- 2 sweet potatoes, washed and dried
- 1-2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp salt per baking sheet
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon per baking sheet
Oh, and one more thing. These chips are baked not fried, which means they’re not nearly as bad for you as most chips. Which means you can eat more. Which means you’ll probably want to double the recipe. Just saying.
