Hello readers! I’m Margaret Anne from Natural Chow and today I have this Easy Homemade Pita Chips recipe that is so simple and made from scratch!
I snack like it’s my job.
Thankfully I was blessed with a high metabolism and a will to make healthy snacks instead of resorting to processed foods to feel satiated!
Healthy snacks like these homemade pita chips are an absolute must when you’ve got a busy schedule like me, or if you’re just always hungry and you want something healthy to eat (like me).
These pita chips are a delicious and inexpensive alternative to the store-bought counterparts. Typically, a bag of pita pockets from the store can cost anywhere from $3-$5, whereas these only cost around $1-$2 to make, and even less if you make your pita pockets from scratch as well.
I used to not be into watching football games, or even into watching movies about football, but lately it’s ALL I can think about. Well, the game AND all the amazing food I know I’ll be eating.
These Easy Homemade Pita Chips are so great because I don’t have to feel guilty about eating them with a little dip during the game.
The process of making these pita chips is so simple, pretty much anyone could make them: cut a couple of pita pockets into triangles, brush with olive oil, sprinkle on a little salt, and bake! There’s so little prep involved and you can have a big bowl of delicious pita chips ready to serve in 20 minutes or less. It almost sounds too good to be true!
I haven’t met anyone who hasn’t loved these crispy, crunchy, flavorful pita chips pinned from The Pioneer Woman. I usually like to use whole wheat pita pockets when I’m making them just because I feel like it’s healthier that way, but you could easily use pita pockets made with white flour. I feel like the pita chips made with whole wheat flour have a deeper, toastier flavor than chips made with white flour.
Easy Homemade Pita Chips

- Cut the each piece of pita bread into six wedges. Place the wedges on a foil-lined baking sheet the prepared baking sheet and brush both sides of each wedge generously with olive oil.
- Sprinkle with salt, then bake them for 15 to 18 minutes until they're golden brown and crisp. Serve warm with dip or by themselves.
