Do you struggle to find healthy snacks that are easy to grab on the go? That’s something I used to find difficult as well. But I have since worked on a number of snacks I can munch on and feel good about, including these delicious Air Fryer Sweet Potato Chips.


  • Sweet potatoes: As the name implies, they’re naturally sweet as well as healthy! They’re rich in vitamin C and vitamin B6, among other nutrients and minerals.
  • Seasoned salt: A delicious spice, also called seasoning salt, typically made up of salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and parsley.
  • Kosher salt: With larger, coarser grains than typical salt, kosher salt helps to bring out natural flavor rather than make something taste “salty.”
  • Garlic powder: Adds a yummy, garlicky flavor without making the chips ultra salty.
  • Cayenne: A great addition if you like a little bit of kick to your snacks. Can be reduced or omitted if spicy food isn’t your thing.

How to Make Air Fryer Sweet Potato Chips

Start by thinly slicing your sweet potatoes. If you have a mandolin, this is a great time to use it. Otherwise, carefully use a knife. The thinner, the crispier.

Lay your chips into a single layer before popping them into the air fryer for about 14 minutes. You’ll want to do this in batches, so as to not overcrowd them.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I store these chips?

Kept in a sealed reusable bag or air-tight container, they should last for 3 days.

What if I don’t have an air fryer?

You could also make these in the oven, but it will usually take more time to get the crispy, crunch of a chip.

Why are my air-fried chips soggy?

If your chips don’t come out crisp, pop them back in. All air fryers are going to be a little different, so while 14 minutes is perfect with mine, you might need to cook yours longer.
