Mini pita bread bites are back! I made two batches of these mini pita bites, one were garlic bread ones that I posted on the blog before.

But…

I finally got around to posting the other recipe!

These sweet chilli pita bites are small, sweet and a perfect little snack. Serve them with dip or eat alone, who cares as long as you enjoy it!

Take a large pita bread, use whatever kind of pita bread you like, and cut it up into 8 little pieces or 6 if you prefer. I used pita breads with 180 calories a go, and I used the longer ones, but I’m sure the circular ones will work just as well here.

Yes, I know it’s tough waiting for nice things, but there are only a few more steps to go…

Mix together your sweet chilli glaze, spread on the bites and put them in the oven and bake and enjoy.

See, easy peasy!
