Remember this¬†recipe for sweet potato chips? This version is not as healthy and has a higher carb content, but it definitely hits the spot if you’re craving that little something ‘naughty’ (good food is never really naughty in the right quantity, is it?).

One medium to large sweet potato will usually make 2 snack-sized portions. Peel and slice the sweet potato. I went for a julienne cut here:

For the coating mix the following:

2 tablespoons flour (wheat/spelt or any other)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon hot chili sauce or chili flakes (adjust according to taste) or 1 teaspoon Paprika powder

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix the sweet potato chips into your mixture carefully, trying to coat all surfaces equally (you may need to do this in two batches). I used my airfryer to make these, but you can also use your oven with fan on at about 200 degrees C. Cook for 15-20 minutes until they start to brown, tossing half way through. Serve hot with a generous dollop of mayonnaise, if preferred.

It also works if you prefer to omit the flour completely and just use a small amount of oil and spices:
