Does snack time need a makeover? If so, you’re in luck! We came up with a tasty new way to refuel between meals. Our skinny sweet potato sticks are an easy and delicious alternative to greasy, calorie-dense potato chips (or even French fries). This crispy recipe calls for just a couple of simple ingredients, casting the spotlight on one of our favorite superfoods!
A Healthy Snack Time Alternative
This candy-sweet veggie carries a bunch of incredible nutrients like beta carotene, vitamin A, and vitamin C. To crank up the nutrition even further, we’ve cooked these savory sticks with coconut oil, an ingredient that’s bursting with body-loving benefits and healthy fats. Adding a sprinkle of salt to the sticks balances out the sweetness of the potato for a drool worthy snack that will hold you over until lunch or dinner time!
More than a Snack
These sweet and savory crowd-pleasers are incredibly versatile! You can– of course– enjoy them as a snack on their own as mentioned above. But you can also serve them on top of salad and soup, or even in sandwiches for a satisfying crunch! Not only will they add great flavor and texture, but they can make any meal more filling, too! You may want to double or triple the recipe so you have plenty of skinny sweet potato sticks to enjoy all week long!
How to Make Our Skinny Sweet Potato Sticks
This recipe is easy to make and absolutely scrumptious! All you need is 15 minutes to prepare these tasty sticks. Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Peel and julienne the sweet potatoes. Place the sticks in a mixing bowl and add the coconut oil and salt. Toss the ingredients until they’re evenly coated. Spread them out in a thin, even layer over a parchment-lined or non-stick baking sheet. Set your timer for 30 minutes but make sure to stir them and spread back into an even layer every 10 minutes. This will ensure that they get perfectly crispy all over!
