Yam chip recipe

Baked yam chips are a lower calorie and more nutritionally dense alternative to fried potato chips.  Since they’re naturally sweet, they can be eaten to control cravings for sweets.


  • Kitchen mandolin (slicer)
  • Convection oven (preferred)
  • Half sheet baking tray (18” by 13”)

What our mandolin looks like.  



  • Yam, bigger the better
  • Kosher salt
  • Olive in in spray bottle


  • Set mandolin to slice mode, ⅛” thickness.    
  • Start slicing.  Should look something like this:


  • Oil the pan with 4 ounces of olive oil.  Use a paper towel to spread it.   
  • Sprinkle 2 ounces of kosher salt evenly throughout the pan.  
  • Place yam slices on the pan.  Each slice can overlap another slice by up to an inch.  
  • Spray olive oil on top of yam chips, as little or much as you want.  
  • Sprinkle 2 ounces of kosher salt on top of the yams.  
  • Bake at 200 degrees for an hour.
