Save money by making your own cinnamon pita chips at home which are much more delicious and healthier than store bought! This quick and easy recipe is also packed with protein and is also completely sugar free !
Can we talk goals/intentions for just one second?
Before coming out to LA, I told myself that I’ll try to get into the habit of enjoying home-cooked meals more and saving brunch/lunch/meals out for special occasions and/or weekends. It’s not that I don’t eat at home- I do! However, I think my body (and mind) is getting sick of eating no-bake protein bars, cake batter oatmeal and brownies on repeat.
What’s wrong with eating brownies and bars though?
Nothing. It’s just this boy needs some variety.
Seeing as I eat whatever I shoot and/or leftovers for breakfast/lunch, dinners have been savory and OUT. I just can’t look at the kitchen, and the thought of turning on an oven or chopping some fresh ingredients makes me want to turn into an eggplant.
Safe to say, my intention to eat more home cooked meals have gone out the window. Don’t worry though- Next WIAW, it will be all home-made and 100% not reliant on bars/bites/balls/brownies.
How are you all today? It’s Wednesday which is the day I share a FULL day of eats with you and I’ll also be sharing a delicious (and ridiculously easy!) recipe!
Now on to today’s recipe! I’m stoked to be collaborating with Flatout Bread again in 2016.
I’ve loved being able to showcase the versatility of wraps and bread and proving that it’s not just a vehicle for sandwiches. What I love most about Flatout is that unlike most flatbreads on the market- You can actually load it with fillings and toppings and not be left searching around for a fork to eat it. They are sturdy, delicious and come in a range of flavors and styles.
You guys might remember when I ate Flatout wraps for an entire day. I followed that up by……doing it again. I then decided to go cray-cray and make breadcrumbs from it and turn them into No Bake Butterfinger bites. Today? I’m showing their versatility in what will be your new favorite snack- Healthy Baked Cinnamon Pita Chips!
Over the past few months, one of my ‘healthy’ snack choices were these pita chips. They came in a few flavors, but my favorite was hands down the cinnamon sugar one. This might be TMI but I’d…..like the cinnamon/sugar off being scoffing the crunchy chips. After polishing off
over 25 a few packages of them, I realized I could just as easily make them myself.
These healthy baked cinnamon pita chips literally take 15 minutes to whip up and are a texture lovers snack- Sweet, salty, crunchy and crispy all in one! Because of its thin style, you really don’t need any more than 10 minutes in the oven to bake them! Unlike traditional pita chips, these are baked and only use a dash of oil to avoid sticking and to give it a delicious, golden crunch! It’s also completely sugar-free because I used my favorite granulated sweetener, Norbu! I also took it up a notch by adding a scoop of vanilla protein powder to it to give it more staying power and aiding the sweet and salty texture!
HACK! Want an extra boost of protein? I made these with both the Flatout original AND the ProteinUP wraps which already boast a generous punch of protein- Both work great for this recipe!
Make these healthy baked cinnamon pita chips and give your taste buds a party- Healthy style.
Healthy Baked Cinnamon Pita Chips
- 1 Flatout Wrap of choice I used the proteinUP and the original flatout varieties
- 1 teaspoon Saigon cinnamon
- 1-2 teaspoon granulated sweetener of choice
- pinch sea salt
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder optional
- Cooking spray of choice
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray a large baking tray/dish with cooking spray. Cut the Flatout wrap into triangles and lay out evenly. Spray the triangles lightly with more cooking spray and set aside.
- In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon, sweetener of choice, sea salt and and optional protein powder until combined. Cover the Flatout bread triangles evenly with the mixture and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until crispy and golden on the edges.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool before enjoying!

Did I hear cinnamon and pita chip? Sign me up! This is a great snack for sure, and it most definitely is not brownies, balls or bars. Although I think a Healthy No Bake Eggplant Bar recipe needs to make an appearance here soon, yes?
Oh dude. Maybe if we call it that and then actually make a smokey baba ganoosh which is what I ate last night…SO GOOD!
Ooh, I’m usually a savory pita chip lover, but I’m loving the cinnamon!
Lately I’ve been snacking on hummus and guac…my favorites.
Homemade snacks are great, but working FT and taking care of a 15 month old means I usually turn to store bought for convenience. I might have to try these, though!
Please do, Catherine- I promise they taste good 🙂
Flat Out has gluten-free now?! YASSSSSS! Praise the Lord. My mom literally just bought some Flat Out wraps for my little brother and I moped and whined the entire time he wolfed it down. I miss them! But now they have gluten-free options? Sign me uppppppp!
And I won’t even lie, I’d probably just lick all of the cinnamon sugar off of these before dipping them into guacamole….
You’d love these and I LOVE the idea of double dipping that style 😀
Those pita chips look great! I have used just stnadard tortilla for homemade “tortilla chips” – but these look good! I get a major sweet tooth in the evening, and these look easy enough to whip up 🙂
Please try it out, Lindsey- You’d love them 🙂
I’ve been snacking on peppermint bark (leftover from Christmas) like its a healthy snack. We have a canister of it and everytime I walk by my hand goes in. I wondered why I had so much energy lately!
I like to make snacks whenever I have time. My favorites include roasted nuts and veggies. I am partial to animal crackers which I would never try to replicate. I love pita chips though and have tortillas lying around so this might be a new easy snack. Thanks for the recipe!
These are great, you’d love them Ellie!
I love all your super simple recipes. I love snacking on cinnamon pita chips and now I can make my own!
Thanks so much, Anna-Marie 🙂
I will eat all the bars and desserts that you won’t be eating while having these chips.
Oh man, I am so obsessed with these…I polished off another lavash of it!
Dude! You know I am so making these cause I can make GF and I LOVE cinnamon. and well i love anything to go with hummus (sweet hummus)
YESSS. This would go so well with sweet hummus!
That ceviche looks amazing! Lately I’ve snacking on smoked salmon on almond nut thin crackers! So good!
oh yum!!! That sounds so delicious!
Hahahaha, I’m debating as to whether or not I should treat myself to an Indian brunch buffet this Saturday to celebrate before I leave on a three-day retreat next week with no home-cooked food! The struggle is real! Your WIAW posts are always really cool and funny! The English muffins look absolutely amazing! So do the cinnamon pita chips! <3
OMG. I hope you did, they make me so envious! 😀
What a great idea to take those packets of butter from restaurants…it’s SO spreadable! And just say the cocktail— we underage readers will need to know what’s good when we get there. 😉
RIGHT????? Seriously, SO spreadable..and probably full of hydrogenated oils but dammit.
I ate smoothies all day yesterday while testing a recipe that i might not even post. I seriously need to start sharing more savoury dishes on the blog so I can actually eat like a regular human being.
LOL. I legit was telling myself that!
