Simple Baked Pita Chips
Now that we are home, I can stock us up on healthier snack options. We do ok with snacking when traveling because I always make sure to have nuts and granola on hand but that gets old after a while.
We don’t eat bread on a regular basis but when we do, we buy these awesome pita’s from Papa Filin’s. They are made locally and always fresh. They are organic, whole wheat and only have 5 ingredients. Think that’s not a big deal? Go look at the list of ingredients in the loaf of bread you have sitting on your counter. Can you pronounce all of the ingredients?
AND…these pita’s are only 2 WW points if you are keeping track. Since they don’t contain all of the nasty chemicals for preserving, they will mold faster than processed bread so just keep that in mind. If you don’t think you’ll be eating them as bread, whip up some pita chips with the rest so they will last longer.
If you were to make a whole package of pitas into chips, you would have A LOT of chips and at only around $3.00 a package, that makes a cheap, low ingredient, organic snacky treat.
We like them plain, with salt and pepper, sprinkled with parmesan or with a little Neufchâtel cheese and some homemade jam. You could even make a sweeter version of the pita chip and use some organic honey with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
- 1 package low ingredient whole wheat pita bread (can use white flour kind if you choose)
- Coconut oil spray
- Parmesan cheese (the kind in a shaker)
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Cut up your pita bread into little triangles. They don't shrink up when baked so you can make them as small as you want, even crouton size.
- Spray coconut oil lightly on one side, flip over and spray the other side.
- Sprinkle salt, pepper and parmesan cheese over sprayed pitas.
- Bake for 15 minutes (13 minutes if using the white flour kind)
- They will crisp up the more they cool.
