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."

Ready In:
3hrs 10mins
12 pitas




  • 1. Place ingredients except apples and raisins in bread machine in order that your machine specifies.
  • 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. 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. 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. Remove from pan onto clean towel and cover while cooling.

  1. 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.
  2. 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. Thanks, Katzen! Made for Veggie Recipe Swap.


I'm a now vegan who used to make one heck of a souvlaki. I love cooking, I was a huge fan of Moosewood and Molly Katzen prior to going vegan (although that has nothing to do with my choosing the name Katzen - that's just what my German Grandma has called me all my life.) Aside from cooking, I also love scuba diving, cycling, politics, and reading.
