Multiple times a month I get a serious craving for fried dough sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Am I alone over here?! I know at least one person is with me on this one, that's my husband. But in an effort to be more conscious of what we eat and how much of it we eat we have not yet succumb to our fried desires :) So to help satisfy our craving but on a more friendly caloric level I decided to put some whole wheat tortillas to use and make some Whole Wheat Cinnamon Sugar Chips.
I used the raw frozen tortillas that Costco sells to make my chips. And in honor of the upcoming Valentines Day Holiday and Ben and My 8 year anniversary I used a heart cookie cutter to make my chips. I wasn't sure how they would turn out because I had never made baked chips before. Not to mention it is really hard to top fried dough, right!? That being said, these were very very good and definitely satisfied our craving for cinnamon-sugary fried goodness! We ate ours with some yummy ice cream but they would also be great with a sweet dip or along side a fresh bowl of fruit.
I even took some of my chips and sprinkled them with just cinnamon so that E could enjoy some chips with us.
Whole Wheat Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips
Whole wheat tortillas ( I used the raw tortillas from Costco. If using already baked tortillas I might take a few minutes off of the baking time)1 tablespoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons sugar
2-3 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Using a cookie cutter of your choice or a knife cut your tortillas into desired shapes for your chips.
Melt butter, set aside. Combine sugar and cinnamon and set aside. Place cut tortillas onto a lightly greased baking sheet.
Spread melted butter atop each cut tortilla and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Place in oven for 5 minutes. Turn each chip and spread butter on new side along with sugar cinnamon mixture. Bake and additional 5 minutes. Turn oven off and let chips sit in oven for 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven and let chips cool on rack.
Eat alone or serve with your favorite ice cream, dip or a bowl of fruit!
