Whole Wheat Parmesan Pita Chips

Ingredients

  • 3 whole wheat pita breads
  • 3 Tablespoons melted butter or olive oil/melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon salt
  • grated Parmesan cheese about 1/4 cup

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Melt the butter in a small dish or measuring cup. Stir in the garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and salt. Use a pastry brush to coat each pita bread with the seasoned butter. My kids have always loved jobs that involve the pastry brush - it's like art time in the kitchen!
  3. When all the pitas are buttered, cut each one into 8 triangles. A pizza wheel would work great here, if you have one. Otherwise, an adult or older child can step in and do the cutting.
  4. Arrange the pita triangles on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Sprinkle a little grated Parmesan cheese on each wedge.
  5. Bake at 400° F for approximately 10 minutes, till golden brown and crispy around the edges. I started checking mine around 8 minutes, and took them out after 11 minutes. The chips will also crisp-up more as they cool.
  6. Cool the pita chips, then dig in! My girls gobbled these up as a stand-alone snack, but they would certainly be delicious paired with hummus, guacamole, or any of your favorite dips. I have a feeling these will be in heavy rotation for our summer snacking!
