Pita Chips (Spiced)

It is so easy to go off and eat junk food these days that I think we all forget that we don't need to eat it!  True, junk food can be very good, and don't get me wrong, here I am blogging about cookies, cakes, pie, ice cream etc... And now I'm talking about junk food.  Anywho, I decided to switch things up with this healthy pita chip/cracker recipe.  I like mine spiced since I probably would have thought they tasted a bit plain without spices.  Olive oil is one of those healthier oils too.  I thought I might add that I dipped these chips in yogurt and they tasted pretty good, you could also probably use ketchup, salsa, and of course hummus! Happy eating! Don't forget to like A Sweet Load on Facebook!  I would also like to say that you can always contact me at asweetload@gmail.com.


Spiced Pita Chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Serves: about 3 people
Beware...Spice alert

4 Pocket pita breads
1 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon chili powder
1/4 Teaspoon cumin powder
Dash coriander powder
Black pepper-- sprinkled on top

Cut the pitas in half, then cut the halves into 4ths or 5ths.  Separate the pieces of bread from one another, for example: Since you are using pocket pitas, once you make a cut you will end up with not 1, but 2 pieces.  Put the pieces of bread in a large bowl and add half of the chili powder and salt. Toss or shake the the bread in the bowl, making sure to get most of the chili powder and salt on as many pita pieces as possible.  Add the rest of the ingredients and toss (or shake) once more.  Place the pieces on a baking sheet covered with aluminium and bake in a 400 degree F oven for 10 min or until crispy.

    1. Yes, even for me, so you might want to tone down the spice a smidge, I personally like it spicy though :D
