This is a recipe I developed for the Culinary Quest 2016 Challenge "Pita - Stuff It!" This makes for a delicious breakfast or even a light dessert!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a light and delicious breakfast option. We loved how the cinnamon and sugar mixture makes the pita sweet and crunchy. It's a great compliment to the creamy yogurt and fruit mixture. There is a great combination of fruits stuffed inside. Toasted almonds are a great topping and add that last bit of crunch. A simple but yummy idea!

How To Make cinnamon toasted fruit pita

  • Cast iron skillet on the stove.
    Heat a cast iron griddle or any skillet over medium-low heat.

    If you don't already have a cinnamon & sugar mixture, then mix the two together in a small dish.
  • Sprinkling cinnamon sugar on top of bread.
    Butter/oil both sides of the 4 pitas. Sprinkle each side with 1/4 tsp of the cinnamon mixture.
  • Heating bread in cast iron skillet.
    Place all 4 pitas on pre-heated griddle/skillet. Cook until nicely browned, about 3-5 mins.
  • Grilling other side of bread in cast iron skillet.
    Then flip to the other side and repeat.
  • Yogurt, strawberries, bananas, grapes, and bread on a cutting board.
    While pitas are browning/toasting, clean and slice all the fruits.
  • Fruit in a mixing bowl.
    Add to a bowl, mix until well combined.
  • Spreading Greek yogurt into pita.
    Let the pitas cool and then spread 1-2 tablespoons of the Greek yogurt inside the pita.

    Fill with fruit.
  • Sprinkling almonds on top of fruit.
    Sprinkle the toasted almonds. Enjoy.

    TIP: If you need to toast your sliced almonds, put them on a small pan and put them in a pre-heated oven or toaster oven for about 4-5 minutes, until lightly browned.
