These cinnamon sugar pita chips have just four ingredients, are quick and easy to make and are completely moorish. I challenge you to try and stop at just one!

Calories 76 kcal


  • 4 large wholemeal pita bread/pita pockets
  • 4 flat tablespoons (60gms) butter or non dairy spread
  • 2 tablespoons (30gms) white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Pre-heat your oven to 350°F (180°C or 160°C)
  • Spread both sides with each pitta with butter or non dairy marge
  • Sprinkle evenly all over on one with sugar
  • Sprinkle evenly all over the same side with cinnamon. To help get an even sprinkle it helps to hold the teaspoon a bit higher above the pita.
  • Cut into small pieces using a pizza cutter or a large sharp knife.
  • Spread evenly over a coupe of baking tray, ensuring they do not overlap. You may need to do them in two batches if they don't all fit in your oven at once.
  • Bake for ten minutes until crisp and crunchy *Oven times may vary. I recommend checking after five minutes, then baker for longer as needed by your oven.
  • Remove from oven and enjoy! Fabulously moorish on their own, with some cinnamon honey yogurt or your favourite sweet dip. Delicious!


I use wholemeal pita in this recipe to make them a bit more healthy but you could use white if you prefer. 
You could experiment with other flat breads but remember to watch them in the oven and vary the baking times accordingly.  
I use castor sugar in this recipe but you could experiment with other types of sugar, it should work with pretty much anything except icing sugar.  
Its really easy to scale this recipe up or down.  For each large pita allow the following
  • 1 tablespoon (15gms) butter or non dairy marge
  • ½ tablespoon (7.5gms) castor sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
