Are pita chips healthy?
As far as snacks go, not only are they versatile but homemade pita chips are healthier than other store-bought chips and savory snacks.
For one, they pack significantly less fat. And you get to control the amount of salt.
- 2 to 3 pita bread with pockets store-bought or homemade
- Extra virgin olive oil I used Greek Private Reserve extra virgin olive oil
- Kosher Salt
- Seasoning of choice I used a generous sprinkle of Za’atar
- Heat the oven to 425 degrees F. And prepare a large sheet pan (do not line with parchment).
- Split the pita pockets in half to make single rounds of pita. Place each pita flat on your cutting board and split them in half from the seam with a sharp knife or kitchen shears (you should end up with 2 single rounds of pita). Note: If your pitas are the thick, single-layer kind, you can skip this step as you can’t split them.
- Brush with extra virgin olive oil & Season. Brush the pita rounds with extra virgin olive oil and season with kosher salt and za’atar (do this on both sides).
- Cut into triangles. Using a knife or a pair of kitchen shears again, cut each round of pita into 8 triangles.
- Bake! Arrange the pita triangles on the prepared sheet pan. Bake anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes, checking occasionally to turn over the pita triangles that have gained color, until you have pita chips that are crispy and golden brown to your liking.
