Whole Wheat Cinnamon Sugar Chips

I had a hankering for a snack. But what else is new?
I didn’t want to eat potato chips (they make me feel gross after), but I wanted something crunchy and sweet.
Oh and cinnamon-y.  And did I mention sweet?
Oh, and healthy too?  Is that even possible…well kind of?


I stared at the pitas on my counter wondering hmmmm… what can I do with these…?
Chips.  Turn them into chips.
It doesn’t have to be complicated to be yummy!


Save Recipe


  • whole wheat pitas
  • vegetable or canola oil
  • sugar
  • cinnamon


  1. Cut the pitas in half (like in the picture above), and very carefully separate the two sides from each other.
  2. Brush one side of each pita piece with the oil.
  3. Generously sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar.
  4. Cut the pitas in half again, then into small chip sized pieces.
  5. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 6-8 minutes. Make sure to watch them very carefully. They basically go from not being done to burnt in 2 seconds flat!
  6. Eat!


  • These are great on their own (perfect for the kids lunch kits!).
  • Or serve them with a fruit salsa or yogourt dip.

    Thank you for this recipe, which I just made (used a bought version of apple/cinnamon sugar, which is really good).
    They are excellent, especially with a chickpea/chocolate dip from Chocolate Covered Katie – I will be serving it on Saturday, but am not sure if either chips or dip will last that long 🙂

    These look super yummy! They kind of look like cinnamon toast crunch cereal. I will have to try them, my son loves cinnamon toast crunch.
