We are going on a boat ride today! For our boat picnic, we were asked to pack a snack. I noticed a package of unopened pita in the corner of my kitchen, which sparked one of my favorite easy healthy snack recipes! Homemade baked pita chips!
I was diligently cutting (use cooking scissors- makes cutting so easy) the pita into triangles, when my son who was waiting patiently to paint on the olive oil, suggested we cut the pita into all different shapes! He would call out the shape and I would cut it. Learning, cooking, and laughing at the same time!
My son was excited to paint each shape with olive oil and sprinkle on the spices. Best of all, he LOVED our homemade pita chips! He ate so many before we even boarded the boat! The rest of our friends also enjoyed this crunchy, healthy, and delicious snack! Get messy! Have fun! And eat healthy!
Baked Pita Chips:
1 package whole wheat pita bread- I bought whole wheat high fiber pita from Whole Foods
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp sea salt
1 tbsp pepper- freshly grinded
1 tbsp dried oregano
1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut pita into triangles or your child’s favorite shapes. Get creative!
2.) Lay pita shapes onto a large baking sheet and lightly spread oil over each shape.
3.) Sprinkle each pita shape with salt, pepper, and oregano.
