Ingredients

  • 3 pitas   I used whole wheat
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil (15 ml)
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste freshly ground, if possible

Instructions

  • First, preheat your oven to 400°F/200°C. Then, cut each pita into 8 triangles.
  • At this point, you have a choice: would you like thicker, heartier pita chips or slightly thinner and crispier pita chips? If you want thick/hearty, leave the triangles as they are.  If you'd like thinner/crispier, carefully separate the pita triangles so that they are no longer double stacked.
  • Next, lay those triangles down in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. No parchment, no prob! Any nonstick baking sheet will do as is.
  • Drizzle the 1 Tbsp. olive oil or avocado oil evenly over the pieces and then use your finger tips to rub the oil over both sides of every triangle. Then, spread them out over the baking sheet to create one single layer.
  • Lastly, sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over one side of the pita pieces.
  • Pop those lil' chips-to-be in your preheated oven.  If you're making the thicker chips, bake for about 15 minutes or until the edges are browned.  For thinner chips, bake for about 8-10 minutes. Once they're cool enough to handle, take a nibble to make sure your salt and pepper level is on point. Add extra as needed. FYI - some parts may be a little chewy fresh out of the oven, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but they will become crunchier as they cool.

Notes

  • Want to change up the flavors? Try adding some garlic powder or even chili powder or blackening spice for a little bit of a spice. Feel free to get creative!
  • Using a salt that's on the coarse side is not necessary, but it will add a little something special to these chips.
  • To make clean up even easier, you can find those flat, pre-cut parchment sheets HERE
