Cinnamon Honey Sweet Potato Chips
Quick and easy to make. Have them as a side or as a snack. A healthy, clean eating recipe.
- 2 lbs sweet potatoes peeled and thinly sliced, about 1/8"
- 2 Tablespoons butter melted
- 2 Tablespoons honey (try to use local honey)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Combine the melted butter and honey in a medium bowl
Add potatoes to the bowl and stir until all of the potatoes are covered.
Arrange potato slices in a single layer on a lightly oiled baking sheet with sides.
Broil five minutes; turn, broil just until tender, about two minutes.
After broiling, bake for about 8 minutes to get the nice and crispy.

I broiled my chips first to give them that little bit of an almost burnt edge. If you don’t want to do this, you can just stick them in the oven.
Watch the sweet potato chips closely if you broil them first. They can easily burn and you really don’t want that to happen. If you decide to bake them without broiling first,
It is important to get 6 servings of fruit or vegetables every day. These baked cinnamon honey sweet potato chips are an easy way to accomplish that goal.
