Dilemma: Your kids love snacking but you don’t want to fill their little bodies with trans fats and calories. One more thing, you love snacking too, but as an adult you are concerned about junk food contributing to high blood pressure, and heart, liver, kidney diseases.
Well, the team here at EnabledKids has a treat for you. Our in-house chef Irit Levy has a personal favorite to share: easy-to-make healthy home-made chips! Enjoy
Cooking Time: Not more than half an hour
- Sweet potatoes (and/or potatoes)
- Olive oil
- Rosemary (optional)
- Cinnamon powder (optional and to be used on its own)
- You can choose whether to peel or unpeel the sweet potatoes. Shred them in a food processor for best results. Otherwise, slice them up with a knife.
- Sprinkle olive oil on the chips so they are coated well. Toss them around with your hands or with a wooden spoon until they are well-covered.
- Sprinkle on as much salt and pepper as you desire. Rosemary might not be for a kid’s palate, but you could add for a more pine-like fragrance. If you like cinnamon, add it on its own for sweet-flavored chips. Make sure the seasoning is added evenly.
- Place the chips evenly on parchment paper on a baking tray. Place in a 350c oven until they are crisp. Do not bake for more than half an hour.
