Baked Potato Chips Recipe

Have you been looking for healthy baby food recipes? This baked chip recipe is designed for baby led weaning stage. Your child can grasp the items in their hands and chomp on the pieces if they like. It goes without saying that you’re going to watch them like a hawk! And the chips are just as delicious for the entire family!

One of my biggest weaknesses is a bag of chips from the chipper, soaked through with strong white vinegar and a scattering of salt.  So hot you have to pass them from hand to hand while you eat them!

There is no need really to buy these chips on a regular basis when you can make lovely chips at home.  Crisp and golden on the outside, fluffy on the inside, I always use Roosters (type of potato) for mine but Maris Pipers work just as well.

Sometimes the best recipes don’t need too many details.


  1. Peel and slice your chips.  Allow approximately 2 medium potatoes per person.  Rinse them off in cold water then pat dry with some kitchen towel.
  2. Into a large bowl put the chips along with 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil per person, 2 teaspoons of tumeric and the same again of onion seeds (also known as Nigella seeds). Stir well until every chip is coated then pour onto a lined baking tray.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes at 150 degrees Celsius in a fan oven.
