I have found my new favorite snack.   My daughter and I were out for a walk the other day and stopped at a little shop that sells fruits & veggies.  While there, I perused the snack isle and the words Cinnamon Pita Chips caught my eye.   I decided to check out the ingredients:  Millet Flour, Brown Rice Flour, Ground Flax, Water, Cinnamon, Brown Sugar and Cane Sugar, Olive Oil ,Sea Salt , Non Aluminum Baking Powder.  So far, so good, so I put a bag in with my other purchases and went home.

After  we got home, my daughter and I opened the bag and we both said “WOW, these are so good!”    “These” happen to be  Millet & Flax Cinnamon Pita Chips from Sami’s Bakery  and they are not only delicious but good for you!  Each 1oz serving packs a whopping 8 grams of fiber.   To quote something my mother always said as I was growing up:  “Delicious, nutritious and makes you feel ambitious!”  LOL

Sami’s Bakery is in the Tampa Bay area if you are local, or you can buy their products online from their website.   The snack is a bit on the pricey side so I may check to see if I can find a recipe to try to make this at home but until then, we will be buying this again!

    Have you found a recipe?? I buy a bag nearly every day and can’t afford it.  Please post if you find something!

      No, I haven’t. I will definitely post one if I do!

       I just ordered some millet flour so I’m going to try and make some of these in the next few weeks.  I’ll post if I am able to make something that turns out well.

        I actually already came up with a recipe that is close, but needs adjusting.  I modified a recipe from Bob’s Red Mill http://www.bobsredmill.com/recipes.php?recipe=806.

        I omitted the whole flaxseeds (aren’t digested anyway), then substituted 1 c. millet flour and 1/2 c. of brown rice flour for the wheat.
        Then I subbed olive oil for the butter and used water instead of milk.
        I then sprinkle garlic powder and salt on top.
        I also bake for longer.  However, I can’t figure out what I need to adjust to make then harder- mine are too soft. I think I need to sub more rice flour, less millet flour.
        Also, I couldn’t find fermented rice flour- you can make it, but I didn’t want to bother. Not sure what purpose it serves, perhaps helps with rising? I don’t know. Can’t find it listed for anything else anywhere.

        Anyway, if you find a way to make these closer to Sami’s, please let me know!
