Thought I would share some of our lowfat snacks we enjoy - please add new ones for us

Flour tortilla strips

Brush 6-8 flour tortillas with olive oil, sprinkle with italian seasoning,  a little sea salt, and onion and garlic powder

stack and slice into about 1/2 in. strips, bake on a cookie sheet at 350 until crisp - not brown.  Will crisp as it cools so don't bake too long.  About 10-15 minutes.  These are good as a snack or on top of soups or along with soups.  You can season them to suit your family - chili powder, cajun seasoning or seasoning of choice.  For a sweet version, use the butter-flavored spray and sprinkle with spenda and cinamon mix.

Bagel chips

We take bagels and slice them as thin as we can, Spray with butter flavored spray and bake at 350 until slightly crisp.  I like to slice them around the bagel to make small chips.  We use the plain, cinnamon, or blueberry .  Store in ziplock bags  or sealed containers.  (This is especially a good way to use the ones I buy at the bread outlet.

Pita Chips

Stack several pita breads, cut into eighths, spray with olive oil spray, season with Italian seasoning or seasoning of choice - bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or until crisp after cooling.

We have not tried the corn tortillas with the strips, but think they would be good.

I like to reuse the large mouth plastic and glass jars for storing these.

These are cheaper than the bought vesions and better tasting, we think.

Thanks for sharing.  Now that the kids are home more and snacking all day, I needed these recipes.
