Sweet Potato Jack O’ Lantern Crisps!


These cute little pumpkins are not difficult to make, and you can play around with your favorite spices on them!

Oven 350 degrees


1 Large sweet potato sliced on the thinnest setting with a mandolin slicer, or thinly sliced by hand

3 TBS of melted ghee or melted coconut oil

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp cinnamon *or for a more smoky taste, skip the cinnamon and use smoked paprika*


1. Slice the sweet potato:


2. With a small sharp knife, carve the face into each pumpkin (this is not as difficult as it looks, I actually did it fairly quickly. Poke the faces out. I saved the pieces I cut out for another recipe (can be sauteed with other veggies, mixed with eggs, etc)


3. place on a cookie sheet in a single layer, and pour melted ghee over coconut oil over the pumpkins:


4. Roast in the oven for approx 25 minutes or until crispy (flipping them once halfway)


Transfer to a plate and serve! My kids devoured these as an afternoon snack. They make a great side to dinner as well 🙂



  1. These are super cute! I spotted them on your instagram page and had to stop by to see how you did it. Love this!

  3. Love this healthy idea for halloween party fare. I would definitely have included this in our “Healthier Halloween” video, maybe next year! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fEYq_k9b6g
