Tips to Make Perfect Sweet Potato Crackers the First Time

This is not a difficult recipe to make, but it is a bit tricky to get it right the first time. So, here are my top tips for you:

  • The secret to making crunchy sweet potato crackers is to roll out the dough thin. The thinner the crackers, the crispier they will be. When the crackers are rolled too thick, they are chewy and look more like biscuits (this may be a better option for younger toddlers that are not able to eat crunchy snacks yet).
  •  Check often! These crackers can burn quickly and depending on the oven you may need to rotate the tray to bake the crackers evenly.
  • Roll the crackers to have the same thickness or very close, if not they will have different baking times and will be hard not to end up burning some. These adjustable rolling pins are great!

Serving Suggestions and Substitutions

These crackers can be served with fruit and cheese for a nutritious snack. I have also packed them into snack boxes, and they are always a huge hit with my 3-year-old.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to make sweet potato puree?

You can steam, boil or roast sweet potatoes to make a puree. My preferred method is to steam the potatoes until they are very soft, this is the quickest way to get to a perfect consistency.
Roasting is a good option as far as results go but takes a lot more time; and I don’t recommend boiling as it will result in a lot more water being incorporated into the potatoes, and you may need to adjust the recipe to take that into account.

Are sweet potato crackers healthy?

Yes, these crackers are healthier than store bought. They contain sweet potatoes, that are packed with fiber, antioxidants, and potassium. It also doesn’t have any conservatives which you can find in almost every product.

What goes with sweet potato crackers?

You could pair them with cheese and grapes, or sweet potato hummus.

Are sweet potato crackers fried?

No, these are baked!

    Hi, these look so yummy that I’d eat them all up. I have 2 grandkids that I’m always looking for healthier ideas to bake for them. I understand rolling thin but about what thickness are you rolling your crackers?

    1. Hi Sandra! The thinnest you can get them, like 1/32″ (1mm) for crunchy crackers.
      If you’d like them softer for younger babies roll them a little thicker 1/16″ (2mm).
      Let me know if you try these! They are so good, you won’t regret making!
      ** Made these yesterday again and measured the actual thickness, see above the updates. I hope that these are helpful 🙂
