Homemade Baked Pita Chips

 
These are a great, healthy alternative to store-bought chips that are usually fried and contain all kinds of preservatives. They are crunchy, full of flavour, and perfect for dipping! You can even customize the spices you use based on your own personal preference or the dip you are serving them with.

Ingredients:

6 whole wheat pitas, split in half and cut into even triangles
2 Tbsp. paprika
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
3 tsp. lemon pepper
3 tsp. ground cumin
Extra virgin olive oil


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. 

Combine the spices in a small bowl. You can adjust the quantities of the spices depending on how strong you want the flavour to be. 

Arrange the pita triangles in a single layer on the baking sheets. Don't layer or crowd them on the sheets otherwise they will not bake evenly. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the tops of each pita triangle with olive oil, then sprinkle on the spice mixture. 

Bake for 5-7 minutes or until lightly browned and crispy. Place the baking sheets on wire racks and allow the pita chips to cool completely. Serve with hummus or your favourite dip! Click here for my hummus recipe.
