Cinnamon Sugar Baked Tortillas

These tortilla chips are so easy! In fact, they are perfect when you and your kids want to do something together in the kitchen. With a little guidance from you with the cutting and oven handling, you can have a great time together, bake something healthier than the average chip and then eat it together!

All you have to do is pick your favorite tortilla – white, whole wheat, cheese, spinach, tomato …the varieties are endless and add your favorite spices…salt, pepper, garlic, curry, paprika or cinnamon and sugar for a sweet treat.

Today, we used to varieties of tortillas – both white but one was made by Indian Life and the other by Dempster’s. The Indian version had a bit more fat in the tortilla and we found that it came out flakier when baked vs the regular Dempster’s variety. Both were great, just a little different!

Portion control is easier with these snacks than when confronted with an entire bad of chips because you can make as many or as few as you want. And, of course, since you bake them with just spices and a spray of cooking oil they are healthier than regular chips too!

Note: If you want to make your own cinnamon sugar to have on hand just mix 1/2 cup sugar with 1 tbsp of sugar (you can add a bit more if you like it extra cinnamony) and store it.

You may want to go a little lighter on the cinnamon/sugar
than my daughter did!


4-10+ tortillas (depending on how many you want to make)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut tortillas into desired shapes/sizes or just use a pizza cutter to cut up like a pie.
  3. Spray large baking pan with a baking spray such as Pam or brush with a small amount of vegetable oil.
  4. Place tortillas on pan.
  5. Spray/brush tortillas with more spray/oil.
  6. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar or other desired seasonings/herbs.
  7. Bake for 7-9 minutes (depends on your oven and the size of your tortillas), until golden.
