Hi Everyone and Happy Sunday!!
Today I have for you a simple recipe that you can put together in just a few minutes. It’s my Cinnamon and Sugar Lavash Chips. Ever since I made my Pumpkin Nut Butter, I have been wanting to find something that was semi-healthy to dip in my nut butter and the Cinnamon and Sugar Crisps are perfect!!
I made these chips using a Lavash Bread. If you’re not sure what Lavash Bread is, it’s a Middle Eastern flat bread that is kind of like a flat, rectangle shaped pita. It’s perfect for making pizzas, rolling up to make wraps or making chips. You can buy Lavash Bread at the deli section of most grocery stores or Trader Joe’s carries it too!! It’s only 70 calories for half a flat bread which is pretty good considering the Lavash Bread is pretty big in size. Bigger then a large tortilla shell.
To make these chips, all I did was cut them into squares, placed on a baking sheet, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top, bake for 5 minutes, flip and bake for 2 more minutes. They turned out perfect! They are crisp, sweet and last for days in a sandwich baggie. 15 chips is only 84 calories and 0 fat! Thats not bad at all considering 7 cinnamon and sugar pita chips are 140 calories, plus 7 grams of fat! Oh, and these are so good crushed up on frozen yogurt, like my Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt or Apple Pie Frozen Yogurt. Plus dipping into Nutella, Peanut Butter or Pumpkin Nut Butter! he he
If you remember last year I made Lime Lavash Chips which was perfect for dipping into hummus!! These chips are so versatile, you can add anything you want to them. Earlier this week I also made garlic and pepper Lavash Chips, which I found highly addicting. I didn’t post a recipe for them, but all I did was sprinkle some salt, garlic powder and cayenne pepper over the top and baked. These chips will satisfy your need for crunch!!!
If you’re a potato chip or pita chip person, then you must make these chips!!!
A sweet and crispy baked cracker that is made with cinnamon and sugar,
- 2 sheets of Lavash Bread
- 1 tsp. cinnamon, ground
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- Cooking Spray
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
- Cut one sheet of lavash bread into 30 squares. Do the same with the other pieces. I found cutting them with a pizza cutter works quick and easy.
- Line the Lavash bread on baking sheet. Try not to overlap them. Lightly spray with cooking spray.
- In a small bowl add cinnamon and sugar. With a sifter add the sugar and cinnamon and shake over the lavash bread.
- Place in oven and bake for 5 minutes. Flip the crackers and bake for 2 minutes more.
