Homemade Potato Chips Recipe: Your Favorite Guilty Pleasure Made Healthy

Healthy Homemade Potato Chips Recipe

Lighten up snack time with these healthy homemade potato chips. They’re just as crispy as the kind from a bag but have less fat and less sodium. Plus it’s easy and inexpensive to make!

You can make these with either russet potatoes or sweet potatoes (if you’re feeling extra healthy!). Russet potatoes are high in vitamin B6, potassium, copper, and vitamin C. Potatoes are low in calories and high in fiber. The most nutrients are in the skin so be sure not to peel.

Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, and pantothenic acid. They have a bit less carbohydrates than russet potatoes which make them a good choice for those who are carb conscious. Sweet potatoes are also an excellent source of beta-carotene which helps maintain healthy skin and eyes.

Make these party-ready by serving them alongside vegan ranch dip or goddess dip. The creamy dips will add even more flavor to this healthy snack and will remind guests of their favorite guilty pleasures, without the guilt!
