Cinnamon Sugar Baked Pita Chips {Recipe}

Pita Chips Recipe | Lil Miss Cakes

I’m so happy to be sharing something with you. I’ve never taken this much time away from my blog and I totally miss it! To ease my way back in, I’m sharing a really easy recipe. It’s not even a recipe, but more of just a really good idea for your Super Bowl party. If you like crunchy and sweet snacks, this is the chip for you! These baked pita chips are so good and so easy to make especially since you can make them in advance. I used store bought pitas  but you can also use homemade if you like, but that makes this recipe ten times harder! I used white pitas but feel free to make them with whole wheat if that is your thing. The pitas I found at my local supermarket were super thin so these chips came out a bit darker in color than I would have liked and crispier than I wanted, but they are still so insanely good-I can’t stop eating them. Pita Chip Process 1 | Lil Miss Cakes

Start by slicing the pita in half lengthwise so you have 2 half moons. Pita Chip Process 2 | Lil Miss Cakes

Then open the pita pocket, gently separate the two halves and cut carefully. Pita Chip Process 3 | Lil Miss Cakes

I’m trying to show the pita cut in half and then in half again, but it was hard for me to capture! Basically, your pita should now be in a single layer. Pita Chip Process 4 | Lil Miss Cakes

Brush each side with oil of your choice. I used vegetable oil here. Pita Chip Process 5 | Lil Miss Cakes

Sprinkle both sides with cinnamon sugar. I mixed white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon.Pita Chip Process 6 | Lil Miss Cakes

Spread chips in a single layer onto a parchment lined baking sheet (you may need more than one baking sheet) and bake in a 375 degree preheated oven until crispy. Mine took less than 8 minutes because my pitas were so thin, if your pita is thicker, it may take longer.  Allow to cool and then store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
