Skinny Olga’s Snackers

Here's the Dish

A while back when I made a healthy version of Olga’s Orange Cream Cooler, I had a special request to make another popular dish from Olga’s…Their snackers! First, let me start by saying, did you know that one serving of these seemingly harmless ‘snackers’ pack almost 500 calories and 25 grams of fat!?! Yikes! There is good news however… Now you can make them at home any time you want, for under 250 calories for this entire recipe! Yeah!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 25-30 minutes.

1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a cooling rack (this will ensure both sides of the pita will get equally baked, but if you don’t have one, no worries, just line baking pan with foil!) Spray with non-stick cooking spray.

2

Cut pita (or wrap) with a pizza cutter, making 8-12 equally sized triangles. (Cut circle in half, then cut each of those halves in half one or two more times, depending on the size of your bread.)  Lay triangles on prepared baking sheet.

3

Sprinkle garlic powder, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, paprika, and additional seasonings if desired on pita triangles, coating each triangle evenly. Spray triangles with non-stick cooking spray, (this will ensure seasoning sticks well to the bread.)  Bake for 12-22 minutes, or until snackers  are lightly golden brown. (Wraps will require about 12 minutes to bake, pita will take a bit longer, about 20-22 minutes). Remove snackers from the oven and enjoy!

Ingredients

2 PiecesLow carb/High fiber pita bread 1
1 tsp Seasoned salt (or regular salt to taste)
1/4 tsp Pepper
1 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Paprika
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Optional seasoning: 1/4 tsp chili powder or cajun seasoning

1 The pita I used has 80 calories per pita. If you can't find low carb/high fiber pita, low carb/high fiber wraps will also work.

I just made these this evening and they were great! I used a Mission Wholemeal Tortilla, because that is all the my local shop had.

I cut it into quarters and then experimented with a different seasoning on each quarter: smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, dill.

Also made a homemade salsa…perfect snack for Sunday evening. Thanks for sharing.

Blessings!

I had a question about the ww points plus value. It says zero points, but wouldn’t that be for one piece? Not one serving? they look great- just wondering if the points value is for the recipe or just one snacked. Thanks for the wonderful recipes!!

it came out to be zero for one snacker, you can figure the points depending on how many you eat using the nutrition facts listed :)

Oh wow. I LOVE Olga’s Snackers. The pizza flavored ones are my favorite. I haven’t tried these yet, but I will.

I just wanted to comment to alert you to what I think is a typo in Step 1. You say “cookie cooKing rack” and I think you meant cooLng rack.

What about the awesome cheese that comes with the Snackers at Olga’s? That’s basically the reason I order Snackers. Do you have a recipe for that?
