Gluten-Free Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips - For Lunch!

Tuesday, 1/14/14 - As part of their "winter" unit at Z's private Kindergarten class, the kids folded up tortillas to cut out snowflakes. The gluten-free rice tortillas I sent were terrible for this, so we had all kinds of raggedy tortilla scraps. Instead of just tossing them, I decided to turn them into cinnamon sugar tortilla chips!

I went a little outside the norm with these lunches, but really, the cinnamon sugar chips and sweetened chocolate peanut butter still have less sugar than a regular peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

Homemade Tortilla Chips
Preheat oven to 350 F. Cut or tear tortillas into whatever shape/size you want and place on lined baking sheet. Spray or brush lightly with oil. Sprinkle on cinnamon sugar, salt, or seasoned salt. Bake at 350 F for 10-15 minutes, until crunchy and golden. (Note: gluten-free tortillas may not brown before they're over-cooked, so check for crispiness.)

Toddler Lunch
GF cinnamon sugar tortilla chips, Dark Chocolate Dream PB; organic carrots, tomatoes, and peas, watermelon

I gave them each a small muffin cup of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter for dipping. And protein. Yum!
