I love eating crunchy healthy homemade potato chips with lunch and dipping them into avocado. I started making my own potato chips because it’s hard to find healthy potato chips at the store. I love this brand of potato chips made with coconut oil and no harmful ingredients; however, my local health food store doesn’t carry it. That’s why I wanted try out making my own.
Most potato chips are cooked in unhealthy oils, contain GMO’s, pesticides, preservatives and additives. The EWG reported that potatoes have been found to contain the most amount of pesticides by weight compared to any other food. So, this is one of the most important foods to make sure you get organic!
I tried making homemade baked sweet potato chips a few years ago and they didn’t turn out well so I didn’t think it would be possible to get a good recipe for healthy homemade potato chips. But, you can make healthy potato chips at home and make them turn out delicious! These chips taste similar to lays potato chips! Even though they’re made with coconut oil, you can’t really taste the coconut oil at all.
You will enjoy these healthy chips and the great fresh taste!

What if You Don’t Want to Make Your Own Potato Chips?
If you’re looking for a healthier option for potato chips, but don’t want to make them yourself, these coconut oil potato chips are a great option. They are organic, non-GMO, and cooked in coconut oil.
Healthy Homemade Potato Chips Recipe:
- 4 large organic potatoes
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon sea salt (approximate, salt to taste)
Directions: (pictures below)
1. Cut potatoes in to thin slices. Try to make them all about the same width.
2. Soak the slices in a pot of cold water for about 30 minutes to 1 hour. You can skip this step; however, it does make them more crispy.
3. Add the coconut oil to a pot and put it on medium heat.
4. Once the oil is melted in the pot, add about 4 to 5 potatoes slices to the pot. If they sizzle when you add them, then you know the oil is at a good temp.
5. Let them cook in the oil for about 3 minutes, until they lightly brown.
6. Remove the slices and place them on a wire cooling rack. *Pat the chips gently to remove excess oil.
7. Repeat until you’ve done this with all the slices.
8. After they’re cooled, sprinkle sea salt on them. As they cool they will become crispier.
Enjoy the chips! I love to dip them in fresh, mashed avocado!

I’m wondering how this would work with turnips and beets? Have you ever tried it?
I haven’t tried it with turnips or beets yet. It sounds great though! Let us know how it works if you give it a try.
Been planning to do this forever for my dad. He’s a potato chip fiend! Glad to hear it from another source. Love your website, and to see another young person so interested in natural health and living!
Thanks Amy! Hope he likes them 🙂
Lori, You can try an air fryer to make those chips or even fries. Lisa
That sounds great!!
I want to sign up for the newsletter.
I just added you to my email list 🙂
Can’t wait to try these. I’ve been avoiding PUFA so this is perfect!
My favorite chips are UTZ, but they use cottonseed oil, lots of PUFA there.
So this is def worth trying.
Let us know if you give it a try!
