Healthy Snack - Sweet Potato Chips!

If your after a quick and easy snack in between your meals, then just keep reading to find out how to make this delicious snack! 

Sweet potato have many health benefits such as they are high in vitamin B6, good source of vitamin C and D, and also contain iron and magnesium which helps with the relaxation and anti-stress mineral.
I have recently discovered this recipe and I have been making them every day since after my lunch. You only need 3 ingredients: Sweet Potato, Salt and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
To start off you will need to peel and thinly slice the potato whichever way you would like (either longways or from the ends). Then place into a bowl and pour in about a tablespoon of olive oil depending on how much potato you have cut, (it really doesn't need to be exact) then sprinkle in some salt. And again it is just personal preference on how much salt or oil you want with the potatoes. Then get your hands in there and mix it all around!
Grab an oven tray with the wire rack over the top and place baking paper underneath the wire rack. This is for easy clean up and for any oil that will fall onto the paper. Throw on the sliced sweet potato pieces and cook for about 15 minutes or to preferred crispiness. (I have a fan forced oven and I put the temperature at 160).
And you're DONE! Too easy, so theres no excuse to be eating junk in between meals when you don't know what to eat or don't have hours to make something. This recipe honestly takes 3 minutes preparation time and 15 minutes cooking, so less than 20 minutes!
