pita chips

January 25, 2010

This one is an absolute no-brainer. There I was last week, munching on a delicious bag of Stacy’s Pita Chips, wishing they weren’t so crazy-addictive, when it hit me that this was the easiest D.I.Y. blog post of all time.

Stacy’s are my fave so don’t think I’m hating but they also have a list of ingredients way longer than necessary, considering mine looks like this:

D.I.Y. Pita Chips

  • 3 wholewheat pitas, cut into eighths
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and pepper

Combine the wet ingredients, brush (don’t slather them, unless you want a gross fried end product) onto the pita wedges and bake at 375 degrees for about 12-20 minutes, depending on your oven.

What could be any easier?! The best thing about these is the endless possibilities of flavourings: herbs, cheese, balsamic-infused. Go ahead and get crazy.

The next step to making these truly D.I.Y.? Making the pita bread from scratch too. Don’t worry there’s a recipe for that in my new book. It’s only a matter of time.

D.I.Y is the only chance I have at any kind of portion control when it comes to pita chips. Stacy's are dangerous!

I love Stacy's pita chips but I have made my own too..so easy and so yummy!!

I need to try this again! The last time I tried to make some, I burned them badly (and yuck, still ate them).

best. idea. ever.

i have made them before too, and they really are SO EASY! i just got a bunch of fun spices for x-mas as well, so they are pretty much begging to be slathered on pita bread and toasted to perfection!

i am totally LOVING this D.I.Y. series, BTW. i hope you are having a lovely week my friend – are you giving platelets/McD's another shot? or did they ban you forever?

I always put the raw cut-up pita in a plastic container with the oil and spices and shake it up like mad. It's a really easy way to coat the chips. These are great for parties, too. :)

are you trying to kill me with all these lovely, carby DIY lessons?! although i think pita chips made at home would be much, much better for me than stacy's.. since i tend to eat the whole costco sized bag in one clean swoop ;) but honestly, your pita chips are gorgy! you should write a book of your own and call it DIY the baller way! by: angharad the great.

Great DIY post, I'll have to have a go at making some of these.

oh my goodness, i think pita chips are my most favorite thing ever!

i just read about a "healthy chip dip" in Real Simple magazine – blend together 1 bag of frozen broccoli (thawed), 1 cup of low fat cottage cheese, and S & P to taste. Use pita chips to scoop it up!

I might have to try that soon…

Lol. You're funny.
They are addictive, for sure.

These look awesome! Great DIY post! Now I just have to find a recipe for DIY pita bread!


Michal January 28, 2010 at 9:15 pm

Meg January 29, 2010 at 8:17 pm

These would be awesome with some dip :)
