Type of DishFlatbreads


  • 6 (each about 1 oz/30 g) whole wheat pitas 
  • ¼ (50 ml) cup olive oil 
  • 2 tbsp (25 ml) minced green onion (white and light green parts only) 
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) chopped fresh basil leaves (or 1 tsp/5ml dried) 
  • ¼ (1 ml) tsp fine sea salt 
  • ¼ tsp (1 ml) freshly ground black pepper 
  • Large rimmed baking sheet, ungreased


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Cut pitas into quarters. Separate the top and bottom pieces. Place on baking sheet in a single layer, without overlapping if possible. Lightly brush with olive oil and sprinkle evenly with green onion, basil, salt and pepper.

  3. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 12 minutes or until light brown and crisp. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes before serving or storing (see Notes below).


Use 1 tsp (5 ml) garlic salt instead of sea salt, flavored oils instead of olive oil or any herb of your choice instead of basil, following the proportions in this recipe.


* Pitas vary in thickness; some have sides that are twice as thick as others. If this is the case, remove thin chips from the pan with a metal spatula as they are done, leaving the thicker ones to cook longer.

* In many locations, green onions are known as scallions.

* These chips can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

My husband loves flat bread chips and picks them up at our local health food shop every chance he gets. He will love the fact I can make them at home too. I am sure that once he knows I have the recipe, he will be after me to get started. Thank you for sharing this with us.
