Finding crackers that taste good and use real ingredients can be challenging. And while I sometimes choose to make my own crackers, it can get pretty time consuming when I’m in a rush. So what do I do instead? I make up a batch of my delicious homemade whole wheat pita chips.
These days it’s pretty easy to find whole wheat pita bread with real ingredients. I can pick up loaves at my co-op, Whole Foods, or Trader Joe’s. Although they’re usually not organic, they do feature 5 simple ingredients: Whole Wheat Flour, Water, Honey, Yeast, and Salt. So when I’m in the mood to make some quick crackers for appetizers, these homemade whole wheat pita chips are one of my favorite, go-to options.
Kitchen Tips and Resources:
- A couple heavy-duty rimmed baking sheets are essentials for any kitchen and baking up these whole wheat pita chips. Try to avoid the flimsier varieties since they can bend, twist, and cook less evenly over time. You can buy baking sheets from just about any place that sells quality kitchen bakeware, but here’s a link for them on Amazon and at Williams-Sonoma.
- Pastry brushes of all sizes are great tools to have on hand. They come in particularly handy when brushing these pita chips with olive oil. Personally, I prefer to use ones like these that have natural bristles.
