Cinnamon Sugar Paleo Pita Chips (Nut Free)

Paleo pita chips at their finest. This Nut Free snack is a delightful balance of crunchy and sweet, making it ideal for a fun snack or treat.

Know how when you're baking or roasting something cinnamon, your home just starts to smell all kinds of wonderful? Well, in my opinion, that is one of the small pleasures in life. I like to think this recipe emphasizes that feeling. 

When I posted my Fluffy TigerNut Pancake recipe (which I love) a few weeks ago, I was already working on this one. The TigerNut flour gives such a nice natural sweetness and I knew I wanted to make it into a chip. However, my first few attempts weren't quite right. I went on a little bit of chip overload from all my attempts, so thought it best to take a break and look at this with fresh eyes. When I came back around to this recipe, magic happened. These "pita" chips were around just long enough for a photo before Kyle (the boyfriend) devoured them. Ok, ok! I had a small (large) part in the devouring too. 

I made these cinnamon sugar chips to remind me of the Stacy's Pita Chips that you can buy in stores. I haven't actually tried these specific pita chips since I was Paleo before I ever encountered them, but I have had pita chips in the past to compare the texture to. And I must say, these are pretty damn good for a Paleo, Gluten Free, Nut Free alternative.
