Sweet Potato Chips



5 medium sweet potatoes

5 tablespoons coconut oil plus extra for frying

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper  



  1. Slice the sweet potatoes into thin rounds (see photo below). Add to a pot of boiling water and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain off the water.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add enough coconut oil until there's about half an inch on the bottom of the pan.
  3. Drizzle 5 tablespoons of melted coconut oil over the sweet potatoes. Sprinkle liberally with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add to the frying pan (you may have to do a few rounds if they don't all fit) and let cook about 5 minutes, until crispy. Turn and cook another 5 minutes. Serve hot.

Serves 5.
