We love a perfectly stuffed, pillowy, healthy pita sandwich on a hot day. What we don’t love is being stuck with 7 out of 8 pieces of pita bread after we’ve satisfied our pita sandwich craving.
What to do with leftover pita bread, you ask? How about turning it into satisfyingly crunchy pita chips? This is our new easy go-to late-night snack, and we swear it’ll be yours, too. You can even spice the chips with cinnamon and sugar when you’re craving sweet along with the crunch.
To pair, grab your favorite dip, whether it’s veggie dip, hummus or our favorite, a homemade honey Greek yogurt (just mix 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt with 2 tbsp. honey and ¼ tsp. cinnamon). Now go crunch so loudly that you wake up your neighbors.
