Homemade Pita Chips
I love to snack. Like wayyy too much. But has anyone noticed how much chips are? Like $4 or $5 and then you realize that half of the bag was filled with air.
Snacking is a pricey hobby. But don’t fret my friends because I have a solution! Homemade pita chips! Making pita chips is extremely easy and tasty.
Not to mention making pita chips costs about half as much as their store bought counterparts. As a college student, I’m all about the cheap and easy snacks. These chips work really well with hummus but I’m dying to try them with an avocado yogurt dip I want to make.
They taste really good all by themselves as well. This recipe is really basic, but you can definitely customize it to your suit your tastes. I think it would be really good with some parmesan or some dried herbs.
I’ve made these twice in the past few weeks, once with whole wheat pitas and the other time with regular white pita bread. I personally enjoyed the white pita chips better, but this time around I wanted something a little healthier.
Just note that I took the pictures with the whole wheat pita chips which is why they’re darker. If you make it with a lighter wheat pita or a white pita your chips will come out a little lighter in color. Make sure you come back tomorrow for my homemade hummus recipe that goes great with these chips!
Homemade Pita Chips
- 5 count pita bread (gluten free if need be)
- 6 tbsp olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves (minced)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
- Combine olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
- Using kitchen shears or a large knife, cut pita bread into 8-12 triangles (I did 12 because I like my chips smaller).
- Brush the oil mixture on both sides of the pita triangles.
- Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 325F for 12-15 minutes, until the chips are crispy. Keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn.
Mmmm! I love making different flavored pita chips, curry and chili powder are two of my favorites 🙂
