LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL and PARMESAN PITA CRISPS
- Lemon Essential Oil – 4-6 drops (mixed with water or olive oil in a glass spray bottle)
- 5 Pita Rounds – any kind – we used gluten-free pitas, but any kind your children like will work.
- Parmesan Cheese – grated (to taste)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Invite the children to help line a standard cookie sheet with parchment paper. Cut each pita round into 4 sections with kitchen shears (supervise younger children closely). Set each of the pita sections on top of the parchment paper. Have the children help count out the number of Lemon Essential Oil drops to add to the olive oil or water in the spray bottle. Lemon Essential oil is highly concentrated (it takes 75 lemons to make ONE 15 ml bottle). Pass the spray bottle around to each child and have them shake well to distribute the lemon oil. The children should then spray each pita section well with the lemon oil (pressing the spray bottle is great fine motor work for little hands). Invite the children to spoon grated Parmesan cheese over each pita.
Bake the pita sections at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes (or until the Parmesan cheese is a nice golden color). For thinner crisps, cut each pita round into fourths and gently tear each section apart before spraying with lemon oil and adding the Parmesan cheese.
5 pita rounds will make 20 thick pita crisps or 40 thin pita crisps. Serve the pita crisps with fresh fruit for a wholesome snack your kids will enjoy making and EATING!
