When it comes to snacking, chips are the classic choice in our house. They’re not great for you as a rule…all that frying and oil and added salt…so these healthier air fried chips are the perfect substitute!
Making things at home is usually a better choice than the store-bought, ultra processed version. In this case that’s even more true! You can control everything that goes into these easy Weight Watchers air fryer chips.
If you need less sodium, use an alternative to salt. I like the Mrs. Dash Table Blend, you can use whatever you have on hand or whatever you enjoy. My husband likes to add Old Bay seasoning to his!
Another great feature of this recipe is the fact that there’s only 1 tablespoon of oil in the entire recipe…that’s LOADS less oil than you’d be eating from a bag of chips.
How many slices are in each potato?
That’s truly up to you. Each serving is one potato so you can either keep track of the amount of slices that you get from each potato, or assume that a medium potato is about 15-20 slices.
I usually keep track as I’m slicing so I know how to track these for Weight Watchers. If that doesn’t matter to you, just assume that about 1/4 of the batch is 1 serving!
Every single potato is different so know that you might have more or less slices in your batch than I had in mine.
How does this Chip recipe count for Weight Watchers?
You can enjoy this recipe on any of the three myWW plans. There are three color coded plans now so it can seem a little tricky. To make sure you get the accurate reading you want for tracking your points, assume that one serving is 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil and 1 medium potato!
- Blue Plan: 4 Points
- Green Plan: 4 Points
- Purple Plan: 1 Point
Purple plan is the only one that allows for potatos to be zero points so if you are on purple plan, keep in mind that these Weight Watchers air fryer chips are a very low point snack option!
What do I need to make air fryer potato chips?
You will need some yellow potatoes, sea salt, and vegetable oil. That’s it! If you want to spice things up a bit you can add some salt free seasoning to the mix as well.
I like to sprinkle on some salt free seasoning for an added boost of flavor, you can also add things like garlic or onion powder and if you are not concerned about following Weight Watchers or another healthy eating plan you could sprinkle on some parmesan cheese, powdered ranch mix, or even nacho cheese seasoning!
Of course, you can also add those things to your myWW plan you just have to track them separately. Only the salt free seasonings will be 0 points on all the plans, the others will impact the over all points of the recipe!
How to make Weight Watchers air fryer chips:
First things first. Slice the potatoes. They need to be pretty thin so a good sharp knife will be a must!
Next put them into a bowl of cold water and soak for at least 20 minutes. This will help remove some of the starches and keep them from being super gummy once they’re cooked.
Finally, remove from the water, pat dry with a clean towel, and season the chips with the salt and oil. Mix them up to be sure they’re all coated! Now in small batches place them into the air fryer for about 20 minutes.
Cook them at 200 degrees F and then turn up to 400 degrees F for the final 5 minutes. Toss the potatoes in the air fryer about every 5-10 minutes to be sure they’re cooking on all sides!
