Introduction: Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips

These crispy, sweet, cinnamon-y pita chips are great to snack on if you can stop yourself from eating them all at once!

Each pita will make 10 - 20 chips - it depends on how small you cut them and if your pita can split through the inside to make double the amount of chips.

Step 1: Ingredients & Utensils

Ingredients:
~ Pita or Flatbread
~ Cinnamon sugar - Basically a 4:1 ratio of sugar to cinnamon. You can also make great toast with it!
~ Butter or Margarine

Utensils & Tools:
~ Cooling Rack
~ Baking Sheet
~ Sharp knife
~ Not so sharp knife
~ Toaster oven

Step 2: Cut the Pita

Now decide how to cut your pita! You could go for a boring pizza style cut, or you could go with the Super Awesome Cutting Arrangement (tm). The Super Awesome Cutting Arrangement (tm) makes sure that you have more shapes to eat and/or marvel at (although there's not going to be much time before they all get devoured). You could also just come up with your own random designs!

Step 3: Butter 'em Up

Take your butter and spread it lightly on the pieces of pita. This will keep the cinnamon sugar on the pita.

Step 4: Everything Tastes Better With Sugar!

Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar liberally on the buttered pita so that it's all covered with sugar-ey goodness. Cinnamon + sugar = yummy goodness!

Step 5: Bake It!

Put the cut, buttered, and cinnamon-sugared pitas on a baking sheet and put them in the toaster oven for 6-8 minutes or until they are crispy and not burnt, unless you like burnt things. When it's done, pull it out with something to keep it from burning you and use a fork or a spatula to remove them from the sheet and put them on the cooling rack.

Step 6: Put Them in a Bag (if They Last That Long)

Put them in a bag (if they last that long) to either give away as a nice little present, or eat 'em yourself.

How could you make them the lowest fat while guaranteeing the best results ?

you could spray canola oil instead of using butter, and there is different types of pita breads that you can buy that are low in fat or even 98% fat free, but be careful of sodium and sugar levels when they take something out they usually have to add something back for flavour etc.
I've never thought to use them as a sweet version but i do make a savoury chip with a Moroccan spice i make homemade hommus to go with them easy as and soooo yummy!!

In Scouts we made something similar. We would take tortillas, cut them into eighths, and fry them in canola or other vegetable oil. When golden brown we sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar. Delicious.
