- 1 (12-count) package whole-wheat pitas
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- Cut the each pita bread into eight triangles, like you would a pizza. Spread them in a single layer on a non-stick cookie sheet, keeping them pushed together as much as possible. The less room you have between them the better.
- Drizzle the honey over the top, and then sprinkle on the cinnamon. Bake at 350° for approximately 15 minutes, or until the pitas are hard, like chips.
- Note: Chips will harden as they cool. If you take them out too soon and find that they did not harden enough, simply return to the oven until they are baked to your liking.
