Homemade Paleo-Friendly Sweet Potato Chip Recipe

KC the G-Free Foodie shows you how to make Honey BBQ Sweet Potato Chips, they’re both Gluten Free & Paleo-delicious.

This is a great snack. It works for those on a Gluten Free or Paleo diet obviously, but I’m talking ANYONE – kids, teens, adults, during the game, 1 am when you’re binge-watching your favorite show, whatever. These work.

You can adjust the chip slices to your desired thickness – super thin will give you an extra-crunchy sweet potato chip (and may burn easier) and thicker is suitable for dipping. I recommend using a Mandoline or hand-held slicer.

Don’t be afraid to adjust the seasonings – kick up the chili powder for a little more spice, or add some dry mustard. The sky is the limit on chip seasoning!
