So after years of being a pita chip and hummus junkie, I’m finally starting to crave it again. However, when I came here to look for a pita chip recipe, I found nothing! Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think there is one! So I’ve taken it upon myself to create one! They’re in the dehydrator now, but I was hoping to get some input for the recipe, as I’m sure it will need some tweeking. Right now it’s as follows:

1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
olive oil (and a little water) to consistency
garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper to taste (will use fresh garlic and onion once I figure out a good recipe)

So that’s what I’ve got! Of course any flavors could be added – sun dried tomatoes, cinnamon, basil, etc. Any feedback on this would be much appreciated!! :)

    That sounds really good. Might I suggest adding flaxseeds? They add that bready flavor that makes crackers and breads so tasty.

  • I too am a pita and hummous junkie!! In fact, I am eating some homemade raw hummous right now!!! With carrots and cucumber instead of pita. Your recipe sounds delicious!!!

    KathyKath – i made some crackers similar to your Pita chip and mine came out to oaty. Please let me know if your ratio on oats/sunflowers tastes good (good consistency). My crackers tasted awesome, but they were really heavy! Thanks!!! I love Matt Amsden’s Hummus :)

  • Thanks for the input! I’ll definitely keep playing around with this.

    RawKidChef – The flaxseed is definitely a good idea. Does it matter if the seeds are whole or ground?

    Great recipe. Why don’t you post it to the recipes? That way it will be searchable and findable for future readers that are pita chip junkies! :)

  • I wanted to make sure the chips were at least edible before I posted the recipe :) It will be up soon!

    I think it would be better to grind them.

    I too really miss pita bread/chips! If you want them chewy, add soaked flax. If you would rather them be flakey/crunnchy, use dry and grind into a powder. :)

    I am definatley trying these.

    Another tip if you want them like the the “greasier” pita chips is to mist with olive oil when the chps are dry. Yum! I used to love those pita chips Whole foods used to sell. I can’t remember the name of them – they come in garlic, cinnamon, plain and salt flavor I think in a plastic box. They were sort of greasy too and nice that thick and crunchy. Boy, I miss those.
