Whole Wheat Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips


Do you ever look through your refrigerator or pantry and realize once again you have let something sit to long.  Well the other day I noticed we had some whole wheat pita breads that I tossed in the refrigerator.  I typically put bread in the refrigerator as the temperature rises.  I knew that they would not get eaten unless I made an effort to serve them.  Our meals were determined for the week and pita bread did not really fit into to them.

I decided to make a snack for Little Miss Mixture when she arrived home from school.  Little Miss Mixture is a big cinnamon fan and she has a sweet tooth, so I decided I would cinnamon pita chips would be good.  Most cinnamon pita chips on the market are not whole wheat, so even adding some sugar would still keep these a pretty healthy after school snack.  The chips would also make a great snack poolside.

The chips were a success,especially when Little Miss Mixture decided she preferred them with Peanut Butter & Company chocolate peanut butter.

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips

2 Tbsp melted Butter per Pita Bread

1 Whole Wheat Pita Bread

1 tsp. cinnamon*

2 tsp sugar*

* this is a guestimation as I am not a person who measures everything.  The cinnamon sugar can be adjusted to a personal taste.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cut the pita bread into wedges, slices, or however you prefer to get the size chip you desire.  I cut strips about 2 inches long, but some crumbled and were smaller.  In a small ramekin or glass bowl mix the cinnamon and sugar into the melted butter.  Once combined you can toss everything into a medium bowl to coat the pita bread or you can brush the pita bread as desired.  Spread chips on a baking sheet and bake for 12 -15 minutes until crispy.  Allow to cool and enjoy.
