Lunchbox snack – homemade pita chips

I hadn’t made these homemade pita chips for a very long time. I forgot how easy to make they are and how tasty they are. The kids loved them and have requested I make them more often.

Of course these are not only perfect for school lunches, but they are a fab homemade finger food for entertaining at home or to take with you on occasions when you need to take a plate.

You can easily switch up the herbs and spices you use on the pita chips to suit the tastes of your family.

I found it easiest to cut the Lebanese breads with a pizza cutter.

Homemade pita chips
Recipe type: Lunch box
  • 5 x Lebanese flat bread
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ garlic powder
  • ½ salt
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Brush each flat bread with coconut oil.
  2. Mix the spices together in a small bowl, then sprinkle with about a ⅓ tsp of the spices.
  3. Using a pizza cutter, slice each flat bread into into 12 triangles.
  4. Place the triangles onto two large baking trays. Space them out so they do not overlap.
  5. Bake in the oven for 6 - 8 minutes. Remove when they are crisp and have turned a slightly golden colour.
  6. Allow them to cool on a wire rack completely before placing in an airtight container.
