Okay these aren’t made-from-scratch. But they are easy and totally customizable. You can make various shapes, flavors, etc. And it’s so fast too!

I was given some vouchers to buy Arnold, Brownberry, and Oroweat Sandwich Thins & Pocket Thins, and Thomas’ Bagel Thins bagels. At the end of this post I’m doing a giveaway for a $25 Visa gift card and some vouchers for the above products.

I had trouble finding the pocket thins and bagel thins at my local Vons, but I was able to get the sandwich Thins. I’m sure I would have been able to find the other products if I tried some other markets, but I was pressed for time.

Just like the name states, it’s basically a thinner version of sandwich bread. It’s great for those counting carbs. I personally don’t like a lot of bread on my sandwiches, so these are perfect: they give me the bread needed for a sandwich without making it too bready.

Each set is only 100 calories with 21 gram of carbohydrates and only 1 gram of sugar.

My second thought after making sandwiches was to make pita-like chips. I’ve never made my own pita chips but these slices seemed thin enough to make my own.

All you need to do is cut them into small pieces, brush some olive oil, and then sprinkle some seasoning to flavor them. I did a garlic & herb blend but you can do whatever you feel like.

These were ready in 6 minutes. I loved them! Mr. K did too and he doesn’t even usually like pita chips.

I was able to make quite a few with only a few pieces. Mr. K asked me to make more after we finished the first batch. These are so easy that I will definitely make them again.
