Crunchy, salty and sweet! Absolutely delicious baked red sweet potato chips. A gorgeous gluten free snack or side dish.

Red sweet potatoes have a lovely flavour and when the skin is left on there is a lovely crunch and chewiness that adds to the texture.

They can be a bit more expensive than the orange sweet potatoes but if l buy the really large funny shaped ones they are often quite cheap.

Wash the outside of the potato really well and then slice into chips with a sharp knife. I like to slice them length ways so the chips are really long. Place on a tray line with baking paper and drizzle with olive oil. Top with a generous sprinkle of sea salt. Place in a hot oven (200 degrees celcius) and bake until golden. You can turn them once while cooking if desired. Serve straight away and top with extra salt if desired.

Have a taste now.

This recipe makes approximately 20 balls.

These will go quite firm in the fridge if you are eating them within a day or two. Otherwise keep them in the freezer and eat them frozen or let them sit for a bit until they soften. Have one or two as a snack and enjoy.

These can be made in around 5 minutes. Vary the nuts and add different flavours that suit your tastes.
