Baked Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

The last time I made these were for Z's birthday party last year. This time, I'm making them to fill his school lunchbox so that he can have them for morning tea. He absolutely loves these (and so do we) and if you don't think about the butter and sugar that goes onto them, they are a healthy baked snack! And they don't crumble and leave crumbs everywhere, nor do they leave a sticky mess on little hands. And they also taste great topped with some warm mashed banana!
A real easy one to prepare (if you're using store-bought tortillas of course, or you can use pita bread if you like), try it out:

Baked Cinnamon Tortilla Chips


Cinnamon sugar (Caster sugar combined with ground cinnamon)
Melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 190°C. Line baking tray with greaseproof/baking paper.
  2. Brush a generous amount of butter over each tortilla and top them with a generous amount of cinnamon sugar. The sugar will caramelize in the oven and create a crunchy sweet buttery crust. If you like, you can butter and sugar both sides of the tortilla (which is easier done after you have cut them into eighths).
  3. Cut the tortilla into eighths using a sharp knife or pizza cutter. Arrange them on the baking tray and pop them in the oven (upper rack) for 6-8 minutes until lightly browned, and sugar caramelized. Be careful as they brown and burn quickly.
  4. Remove from tray, leave to cool and store in an airtight container.

Great idea to put in his lunchbox... but they also would have been awesome at my superbowl party yesterday! But, I think i'm better off having not had them there, I would have eaten a whole bowl of them.
