THESE CINNAMON TREATS ARE SO SIMPLE THAT OUR PRESCHOOLER MADE THEM practically by herself. They’re also quite healthy and definitely delicious. We’re big on cinnamon here, because it’s a tasty way to add flavor without sugar, but also because it’s so dang good for you. Just a sprinkle of that magical stuff can do everything from regulate blood sugar levels to lowering cholesterol and more. Not that either is a big problem for toddlers and their big sisters, but healthy habits start easily at this age, especially when they’re delicious.
But enough about the superpowers of spices. Here’s how you (or your four-year-old) can make these crispy treats too.
Whole Wheat Cinnamon Sugar Crisps
- 3 whole wheat pitas cut into 6 wedges each (we used half a bag, 3 pitas, and froze the rest)
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons organic sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Pour the oil into a little bowl. In another little bowl mix together your cinnamon and sugar. Then cut up whole wheat pitas into wedges and arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone mat.
2. Brush each one with olive oil.
3. Sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon sugar.
4. Flip and repeat on the second side, starting with the oil.
*Do not get distracted by small people wandering in to get snacks.
5. Sprinkle more cinnamon sugar. Then bake for 12 minutes. You don’t need to flip.
The result is very crunchy, very sweet and very, very good.
