Pita Chips

Do you sometimes crave chips or pita chips?  It seems like buying a bag of pita chips is a healthy alternative to regular potato chips……they are a better choice, but with many of them being made from enriched flour why not avoid them and make your own.

They are so easy to make and don’t take long at all.


  • 3 large pita bread loaves (preferably whole grain or whole wheat)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • kosher salt (Optional)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush pita bread with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt (Optional). Cut each loaf into eight triangles. Bake in oven for 5-7 minutes. Remove from oven and enjoy.

    Made these tonight and the kids loved them! We used whole wheat pitas and ate them with salsa.

    So I love love love Pita Chips w/hummus (my snack of choice, after frozen blueberries) – what I do is toast a whole wheat wrap (quick and easy) then simply break it into pieces once it cools – potato schmotato. For a treat I get these spinach or chipotle pepper (or whatever) wrap, toast, sprinkle with Nutritional Yeast (has a cheesy flavor) or cheese and that’s what I take to the movies!!
