Munchies without Guilt

I love sandwiches in pitas rather on bread, but pitas tend to go bad on me faster than a loaf of bread, so it's rare I can finish a whole package. Thus, I don't buy pitas very often.

When I do have them around, if I fear I won't be able to finish all of them, I make myself a snack- pita chips!

What you need:
Pitas
Cooking spray
Salt & other seasoning (I used dried basil, garlic powder, rosemary- whatever you like.)

Preheat oven to 350. Separate each pita into two rounds. Cut rounds into wedges of desired size (6-8 per round, probably). Place the wedges rough-side down on a baking sheet, and spray with cooking spray. Turn over and spray the rough side too. Sprinkle seasonings over wedges. Bake until edges are brown and chips are crisp - 12-14 minutes.


Light, fairly healthy, and great for munching! I've also served them in place of garlic bread as a side with spaghetti. The next challenge: making my own pitas.

I love these too especially with a little cinnamon and sugar. It reminds me of elephant ears without the elephant rear (on me) to go with it :)
