Apple Cinnamon Raisin Pitas (Bread Machine)

I used to buy these breakfast "pitas" from the grocery store, but figured out how to make them at home - for a heck of alot less. They're more like small, flatbreads, and I slice them in half, toast them, and spread them with peanut butter, honey, or jam. Yum! They're not very sweet, as there isn't much sugar in them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Place ingredients except apples and raisins in bread machine in order that your machine specifies.
  2. 2. Set to "dough" setting and allow to complete cycle, adding the apples and raisins when your machine alerts you to add nuts/fruit. I actually have found that kneading these in by hand is actually easier, as they're a bit finicky to get worked through the dough.
  3. 3. Separate into 10 balls. Press each ball into a 4" round with your hands - you'll likely need to stuff some raisins and apples back in - it's worth it. Place on nonstick cookie sheets and allow to rise for 30 minutes.
  4. 4. Preheat oven to 500. Flip rounds, then place in oven for 5 minutes, flip again; turn oven down to 350 and bake for 15-20 minutes longer, until cooked through.
  5. 5. Remove from pan onto clean towel and cover while cooling.

Hmm, my pitas turned into little loaves of bread. I wonder if it's supposed to read 1 teaspoon active dry yeast not 1 tablespoon? These didn't turn out thin like standard pita bread. Regardless, ~Tasty~ loved these and there's plenty on hand this week for breakfasts and smackerels. Reviewed for Veg Swap/Tag July 2010.

When my staunchly non-vegetarian DH reaches for one of these puppies without putting on butter or other fats, what can I say? I gave some of these away and he said, "Please save a couple of them for our breakfast tomorrow!"; these are that good folks! I made as directed, adding an additional 3 tablespoons water during the kneading cycle and let my bread machine incorporate the raisins and chopped apples; I had my chance to re-incorporate them while making the circles.
