Snack Attack: Pita - Not Just for Pockets

If you thought that pita bread was only for sandwiches, I'm here to tell that pita is for so much more - you can make your own pita chips at home.

Here's how:
Preheat your oven to 400° first.
Take 2 circles of pita and separate the bread in half, so you have 4 circles. Place them on top of each other and cut them all into 8 wedges.

Lightly spray wedges with olive oil cooking spray and sprinkle them with a little salt and pepper.

Bake on a cookie sheet for 7 - 10 minutes, or until toasted.

Let the chips cool, then use them to dip into salsa, hummus, or tzatziki. They're also great for nachos.

Why we like it:
Whole wheat pita is high in fiber and low in carbs.
Baked chips are considerably less fattening than fried chips. They keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator. If they seem limp after storage, just pop them into the oven for a few minutes to re-crisp.

Fit's tip: Create different flavored chips by sprinkling the chips with different herbs, spices and/or garlic before you bake the pita wedges.

I LOVE PITA CHIPS!!!

I've found a wonderful, balanced pita that has 160 cal, 2.5 gm fat, 22 carbs- 10gm dietary fiber = 11 gm carb. and (no lie!) 14gm protein. I use it for everything - bread crumbs, pita chips (like those on last post,) bread pudding... anything that would normally need bread. Really, I order it by the case and keep it stocked in my freezer.

:DROOL: I've actually tried these but cut them smaller so they were like chips. I sprinkle garlic powder on it too.
