Toast is one of my favourite things to have for breakfast. But….I also get bored easily and plain old toast with peanut butter is usually only good for a day or two until I need a change. Different bread, different topping, just different in some way, shape or form.

Enter breakfast pitas. These things are amazing. My family and I first discovered them at Costco and they are so, so good. They’re flax seed pitas, and they are absolutely wonderful toasted for breakfast with some peanut butter and jam.

So of course, I needed to recreate them. Naturally. If you’re going to be buying something constantly, you might as well be able to make it yourself, right? Right.

Those flax seed, whole grain pitas took a few tries to recreate, but they are amazing. And actually quite easy to make. So then, of course, I needed to try some new flavours. Because I can’t just leave well enough alone. Like I said, bored easily.

These cranberry orange breakfast pitas were just as amazing as the whole grain ones. We loved them. And again, they are quite easy to make. I will say though, that they’re a little more finicky in the puffing department. They definitely don’t puff as easily as regular pita bread. In fact, it’s a little hit and miss with the puffing, in that they usually don’t puff all that much. But it’s okay. They’re just for toast, and they’re also a bit thicker than your typical pita bread, so it’s actually quite simple to cut a pocket into the bread with a knife after you toast it.

We enjoyed these for breakfast toasted with a little butter, or some jam – no more boring toast for breakfast! Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

    Thank You Again! We loved these so much that I just took another batch out of the oven for this weekend. I think these are even puffier than the first batch 🙂

    OMGoodness! I saw these come across on FB last night and thought this would be a nice weekend breakfast. I just took them out of the oven, and they are beautiful! I didn’t have dried cranberries on hand, so I chopped the same amount of dried apricots. WONDERFUL! They puffed perfectly and taste delicious. I’ll serve them with cream cheese in the morning. This will become a favorite along with your healthy peanut butter buckeyes that I make nearly every week. Thank You!
