Are you tired of not being able to enjoy all those unhealthy snacks that others seem to consume regularly? What if I told you that there is a healthy, easy, homemade snack that is just as good as potato chips, pretzels, and Cheetos? Not true, you say? Good point, we haven’t proven anything yet, so, onto the evidence. Naan is a popular flatbread that many enjoy because of it’s low-calorie, high flavor appeal. However, there is only so much naan that a person can eat alone. Even those flatbread sandwiches get old after a while. So, its time to mix things up. I give you, the pita chip! Light, fresh, and satisfying! Pita chips taste great with hummus, salads, Pico de gallo, anything goes! How about this idea, make one large pita chip and use it to make avocado toast! A few scrambled or fried eggs, a little chopped cilantro…and you’ve got yourself a delicious, healthy breakfast! As you can see, pita chips make every meal better! Why are there so many exclamation marks in this post?! But enough sales pitches, onto the recipe!

The Ingredients: 1 package multigrain naan bread (there should be two rounds of flatbread in the package), 1/3 cup olive oil, 1/2 to 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. onion powder, 1/2 tsp. Flavor Mate Salt Free Original Seasoning Blend, 1/4 cup freshly chopped rosemary, basil, or cilantro leaves.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Slice the naan bread into 2 inch triangles or strips. Using a pastry brush, coat each chip with olive oil. Whisk together the seasonings in a small bowl and sprinkle the mixture evenly over the chips. Bake the pita chips for 6-8 minutes, then, turn your oven on to high or low broil. If you’re planning on walking away and coming back when the timer goes off, put your oven on low broil for 6-8 minutes. If you have time to watch the chips so they don’t burn, put your oven on high broil for 2-4 minutes. Serve the chips with your favorite hummus! Makes 20-24 pita chips.

I didn’t use parchment paper or baking sheets when I made this batch, don’t be like me;)
