Are you a snacker? I am! So I try to turn to healthy snacks as much as possible. These homemade pita chips are my new favorite snack. They’re easy to make, and you can flavor them in a variety of ways.
I like to try to come up with new snacks, so I’m not eating the same thing every day. I get bored easily with that, and when I get bored with my healthier snacks I start craving brownies and cookies. 😉 One day I thought I would try homemade pita chips after having some with a friend. I cut a whole wheat tortilla in 8 wedges and then cut those wedges in half (they’ll pull apart at the “seam” pretty easily). Then I brushed a little bit of olive oil on the pitas and sprinkled them with Parmesan cheese and garlic salt. Less than 10 minutes later, I was enjoying a flavorful snack of pita chips dipped in hummus.
The varieties you could make with these really are endless. I like to sprinkle the pitas with a cinnamon sugar mixture for a sweet treat. Another option would be to spice them up with some chili powder. Or what about a ranch seasoning? Be creative and come up with your own favorite flavoring!
What flavors would you use?
Homemade Pita Chips
- 1 whole wheat pita bread

Cut the pita bread in half, then cut each half evenly into 4 pieces. Separate each pita wedge at the seam, making 2 wedges.
Place pita wedges on a parchment lined baking sheet and brush lightly with olive oil.
Sprinkle garlic salt and Parmesan cheese over the pitas.
Bake at 350 for 7 minutes, until the edges of the pitas turn brown.
