I love a good salty snack. Some of my favorites include chips and salsa, chips and guacamole, soft pretzels, and pita chips with hummus.

Store bought pita chips are fine, but homemade pita chips are the BEST! If you haven’t made them at home, you are missing out. You only need three ingredients and they are super simple to make.

These pita chips are baked and not fried. You can make a big tray of chips at once! The chips are thick, crunchy, and salty. Serve with hummus, spinach artichoke dip, whipped feta, whipped cottage cheese, or your favorite dips! They are also great with salads or plain!

  1. I am not a big fan of pita chips but my kids love it. At last I can make healthy homemade chips for my kids to keep munching. Voila…

  2. I just bought a new bag of pita chips yesterday… O_O … and they are almost gone. This is going to be my new portion control trick!

  3. Homemade pita chips are the best!!! So easy and you can customize how crispy you want it!

  4. This sounds easy AND yummy. I don’t have much self control either. I’d have to portion them out or I’d eat them all AND all the guacamole. Q, my husband, has self control too. What would THAT be like??????

  5. I have a bit of a pita chip addiction myself. They’re just. so. good.  I can’t wait to try making my own!

  7. 5 stars
    These healthy pita chips are so Instagrammable and adorable! As you know I made it a short while ago and it was lovely! Thx for sharing!

  8. i love making pita chips
    i split the pita then cut into triangles – sprinkle with lemon pepper and a sprinkle of fennel seeds and bake
    hope you try this variation one day – you will love it and it quickly becomes your new addiction
    thanks for sharing your ideas

  9. oops – sorry – forgot to mention – i lightly oil first and do the sprinkling before cutting
    i oil and sprinkle on the rough side since i have split the pita – i get twice as many that way and i love them thin and they go so much more crispy as well
    hope that makes sense now
