It's been three weeks since I started eating clean and I've tried a lot of recipes during that time with mixed results. This recipe is for BBQ Sweet Potato Chips and I found it on a great blog called The Sweet Life. The brown sugar in the BBQ seasoning makes these chips not completely clean, but they're pretty healthy compared to store-bought potato chips.
Warning: these babies can burn easily, especially if you use all of the seasoning mix instead of 1 1/2 - 2 tbsp as recommended. (I didn't read closely enough and used the entire batch!). When I went to check on them there was smoke coming out of the oven and I had to rush to open the door and windows before the smoke alarm went off! Thankfully the alarm didn't go off and not all of the chips were burnt, just some on the sheet on the lower rack.
Just looking at these amazing pictures from The Sweet Life has me craving these again!
