Pita Chips

Chip Week! More delicious and safer than shark week. What better way to start chip week off than with a tried and true friend, the Pita Chip. A sturdy specimen of a chip, great for dipping, scooping, and general munching. Since these chips are made out of pita bread, they’re basically a sandwich. Which mean its healthy, and you can definitely eat it any time of the day.

Pita Chips

1 Pita Round
1 tbl. Olive Oil
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Ground Pepper
1/8 tsp. Ground Paprika
Heavy sprinkle of sea salt

This recipe is so easy, you’ll wonder why you’ve ever fretted when you find yourself at the wrong end of a pita chip bag.

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees

Cut the pita bread into desired shapes. I did general triangles, but hey go wild. You only live once.

Toss the bread pieces with olive oil and seasonings. Lay the chips in a single layer, not over lapping, on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake the chips for 20 minutes, turning them over at the halfway point.

Once they are evenly tanned, remove them from the oven, and allow them to completely cool before serving.

These chips are so good on their own, but who doesn’t like company? Don’t forget to save some to try with hummus!

Chocolate Coconut Cashew butter

Oh man! Cashew butter, am I right!? We’ve all tried peanut butter, and it’s good. Almond butter, another tried and true friend to have, but Cashew butter? Cashew butter is in a league of it’s own. Now, let’s get down to business. Chocolate Coconut Cashew Butter, it’s about to become the King Kong of the nut butter world.


1 c. Raw Cashews
2 tsp. Cocoa
1/4 c. Sweetened Coconut Shreds
Pinch of Salt

In a food processor place one cup of cashews. Grind the nuts until they become smooth. The cashew butter will go through many stages. It will first look like crushed up nuts, then dust, then a little bit later it will start looking like thick paste. Eventually you will make it to the nut butter stage. Trust me, it takes some time but it will get there, and boy is it worth it!

Once you make it to the nut butter stage, add the cocoa, coconut, and salt. Continue to grind the mixture until it is smooth again.

This cashew butter is the big brother to Nutella, and the truth is you can’t really go wrong when it’s this good. Bread, pretzels, crackers, cookies, spread the love and get ready to make some more!
