Recipe Swap: Snacks - The Healthy

Pita Crisps

This recipe is easy. If you like the pita chips that you buy in the store, you'll love these. I buy the pita bread at a local bread outlet or Trader Joe's. The Pita Crisps end up costing a lot less than buying a bag of pita chips. You can vary the seasonings to suit your family's preferences.

Preheat oven to 350 F

3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
Pinch of salt
Pinch of freshly ground pepper
3 whole wheat pitas, each cut onto 8 wedges, then separated at "seam" to make 16 triangles

1. In a small bowl, combine oil, garlic, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Brush mixture lightly over "inside" surface of each triangle and place, brushed-side up, on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes or until crisp and golden brown.

2. Remove from oven to wire rack. Allow to cool before storing in airtight container. Enjoy plain or with a healthy dip.

If you decide to make a big batch of these, they hold up very well in the freezer. You can crisp them up by putting them in the oven on a baking sheet and baking or broiling for a few minutes. Just make sure you watch them! :-)
