Sweet, simple and oh so yummy these Strawberry Pita Nachos are the perfect post-workout or anytime treat!

As co-owner of The Recipe ReDux I was compensated to manage this recipe contest.

 

I feel like I haven't blogged in ages. 

And by ages, of course I mean exactly two weeks.

It's not that I've been cooling my heels: 

I'll confess that I've also been dabbling in some indulgent baking pursuits following my reclaiming of a long lost bread machine that I'd left at my dad's house YEARS ago. And these recipes don't exactly fit the "healthy" framework I've built for you here on Healthy Aperture.

(Sidenote: I'm struggling on whether or not to share those recipes here. It's not for "shame". I don't believe in food guilt. But I know most of you come here for the healthy recipes. Would you be disappointed if the recipe for these ooey-gooey splurge-worthy homemade cinnamon rolls showed up in your Inbox? Feel free to answer that at your leisure.)

Anyway, all this launching, driving & pumping has me reaching for some SUPER quick recipes, and especially healthy snacks.

Say hello to Strawberry Pita Nachos! 

 

 

This month, Toufyan Bakeries challenged The Recipe ReDux to show off how we use their pita breads to create a new favorite, healthy recipe. They sent us an amazing selection of their pitas, which are all produced here in the U.S. (In fact, Toufyan is the U.S.'s largest pita company producing more than 100 different pita products. Very cool.)

I gave serious thought to a stuffed sandwich or pita pizza; maybe a crunchy salad or even a dip to go with homemade pita chips (that's the thing with pitas, they're soooooo versatile!) But I landed where I feel most comfortable -- with a healthy, sweet treat that takes no time to make.

What makes these Pita Nachos special is a combination of the sweet crunch you get with just a tad of toasting and the addition of cinnamon sugar to Toufyan sprouted grain whole wheat pita.

Then, it's all topped off with the creaminess of a homemade chocolate yogurt drizzle and the seasonal fresh taste of strawberries. You could easily sub in another berry depending on the season. But I think the chocolate-strawberry combo is perfect. 

And lest you think I've offered up some sugar bomb that's going to derail your healthy eating habits (I'm saving that for when you guys give me permission to post these cinnamon roll muffins), these sweet nachos also provide a big fiber + protein punch, thanks to the sprouted grain pitas. Give 'em a try!
