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! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Cinnamon Toasted Fruit Pita

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat a cast iron griddle or any skillet over medium-low heat.
  2. If you don't already have a cinnamon & sugar mixture, then mix the two together in a small dish.
  3. Butter/oil both sides of the 4 pitas. Sprinkle each side with 1/4 tsp of the cinnamon mixture.
  4. Place all 4 pitas on pre-heated griddle/skillet. Cook until nicely browned, about 3-5 mins.
  5. Then flip to the other side and repeat.
  6. While pitas are browning/toasting, clean and slice all the fruits.
  7. Add to a bowl, mix until well combined.
  8. Let the pitas cool and then spread 1-2 tablespoons of the Greek yogurt inside the pita.
  9. Fill with fruit.
  10. Sprinkle the toasted almonds. Enjoy.
  11. 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.
