Left over tortillas? Fear not! Make these cinnamon sugar crunchy munchies for an easy low-calorie, low-fat snack!
I am all about texture. I think that’s why I have such a strong relationship with cereal.
I tell myself I’m going to stop eating cereal because I can’t have just one bowl. I mean, you can’t throw away the leftover milk after the first bowl…you just add more cereal until the milk is gone, right? And the kind of cereal I like. All kinds. Especially when Blake buys a box and writes his name on it. Some how it always ends up disappearing before he even has nay. Wasn’t me, I swear.
Really though, I think it’s the crunch that makes me so addicted to cereal. When I get the munchies, I go for the crunchies. You too? Then this snack is perfect for you!
At just 123 calories per serving…these crunchy tortillas strips remind me of a Cinnabun, but crunchy!
They only take about 10 minutes to make too. So for the impatient snackers out there like me, this recipe is golden. It’s gluten-free too, that’s if you use a corn tortilla.
Cinnamon Sugar Crunchy Munchies
Nutritional Information | 123 calories | 29g carbs | 1.5g fat | 2g protein | 7g sugar
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 10 minutes
- 4 small corn, whole wheat, or flour tortillas (I used La Banderilla White Corn Tortillas, taco sized)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
- 3 teaspoons coconut palm sugar
- coconut oil cooking spray
- First, preheat oven to HIGH broil.
- Next, stack 4 tortillas on top of each other. Then, using a pizza cutter, cut the tortillas into slices.
- Spray a baking sheet with coconut oil cooking spray then lay the tortillas strips on the tray. Spray the top of the strips with a generous coating of coconut oil cooking spray. Set aside.
- Prep your cinnamon sugar, by mixing together cinnamon and coconut palm sugar. Then, using your fingers, sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top of tortillas strips.
- Once your oven is fully heated, place tray in oven for about 1 minute and 45 seconds. Remove tray and flip. Put back in oven for an additional 1 minute and 30 seconds or until the strips begin to brown. NOTE: PLEASE PLEASE keep an eye on your strips. Because your oven is set to broil, they will burn easily!
For my sweetener, I used coconut palm sugar. This has been my go-to sugar lately. Not only do I like the fact that it’s derived from coconuts and paleo-friendly, but I like the taste and the texture. It’s a bit grainier than table sugar and on the darker side like brown sugar.
Feel free to use your preferred sugar….and don’t ask me about stevia! That stuff freaks me out :D
Maybe I’ve just had bad experiences with it. Who has a brand of baking stevia that actually tastes good? Please share. Pretty please!
Cereal people- can you have just one bowl?
What’s your all time favorite cereal? (Mine is Honey Comb…that stuff is like crack!)
