WHOLE WHEAT PITA CRISPS RECIPE
1 thin whole wheat pita, approx 6″diameter. (Not Greek style as they are too thick).
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp chopped dried rosemary
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Sea salt and ground pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 385 degrees F. Cut the pita in half and open it to make 4 pieces.
Combine the olive oil with the rosemary and garlic and mix well. Using a pastry brush, paint the olive oil mixture onto each 1/4. Pile all the pieces on top of each other and cut into half and then half again making 16 triangles.
Without overlapping them, place the triangles on a cooking sheet and bake for 7 to 12 minutes until crisp. Check often so as to not burn them.
Remove from the oven and serve them with your favourite healthy dip or store them in an airtight container for later use. To save time, make the whole pack of pita and portion them out for healthy snacks.
