As you can see, I picked up a package of whole wheat pita breads that were a day old...hence price reduced. The package contained 6 pitas (each pita has 100 calories)
I preheated my oven to 375 degrees F. While it was pre-heating, I lined my baking sheets with parchment paper. Using kitchen shears, I cut each pita into 8 pieces (see left picture). Starting at the point, I opened up each pita triangle and they broke at the seam, making 2 traingles (see right picture). So, one pita makes 16 chips (for just 100 calories!)
I spread the chips across my pans. Then using my fingers, I lightly sprinkled water on the pita triangles. In my experiment, on 2/3s (2 cookie sheets) of my chips I sprinkled cinnamon and on 1/3 (1 cookie sheet) I sprinkled garlic powder. I baked the chips for 10 minutes or until lightly toasted.
Wow, look how many chips I made. They are light and crunchy and one bag of 6 pitas made 96 pita chips and for less than $1! The bowl on the right contains the garlic chips...great with spicy hummus. The bowl on the left contains the cinnamon pita chips. Check back to see just how I used these!
