pita chips

What a wonderful snack idea!!! Pita chips can be bought, but why don't make them yourself! It really is easy to do and believe me, you'll love to munch on them for snack, dipped in hummus, and you'll want to trade your bag of potato chips when renting movies! Here, I made plain pita chips, but you can easily customize them to your own taste! Garlic, salt, peper, herbs... you're the cook!
Pita chips
1 serving

1 whole-wheat pita bread
olive oil (facultative)
salt, pepper, garlic powder, etc. (facultative)
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Halve the pita and cut it in triangles.
  3. If desired, brush one side of the pita with olive oil and sprinkle with your favorite seasonings.
  4. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake about 10 minutes or until crispy and lightly golden.
  5. Enjoy!!!
