Crispy Lebanese bread sticks

There are so many different types of snack food on the supermarket shelves these days from crispy corn chips, assorted nuts to sugary chocolate bars and dried fruit.

Although I always try to resist a couple of favourites in Dorito corn chips and Cheezels, I find that most of these snacks are relatively high in salt and fat content. So apart from the occasional splurge on a box of Cheezels, I prefer to make one of my favourite snack for watching sports on TV or simply as a happy hour treat.

This snack has literally zero fat and very low salt content but most important of all, it tastes great and eating more of this is actually good for your health.

  1. Love it, Chopinand, love it!

    Ooh nice and slender and crispy. I wonder if it’s any different from pita chips?

    • Chopinand says:

      Dear sophia,

      These are similar to pita chips except they are thinner than most brands of pita chips. Making your own also means you can control the salt content.

  3. Great idea! I love snacking so it’s always great to find a healthier alternative :)

  4. These are perfect Chopinand, on their own and with all kinds of lovely dips and salsas :)

  5. Very nice idea! I don’t eat bread, but I’d do this with carrot sticks! 😀

    What a simple, elegant and appetising snack! (Not to mention the healthy side). The only time I have Lebanese bread is when I buy or make falafels. I will buy it next time I’m tempted by the very fatty nachos. Thanks for the wonderful idea!

  7. Charles says:

    What a great, healthy alternative to salt-laden snacks like chips! Add a bowl of good hummus and I’d be set for the afternoon 😀

  8. Juliana says:

    I love making this kind of snack and often pair with hummus…I like the idea of brushing with olive oil and herbs. I will try this next time.
    Hope you are having a wonderful week Chopinand :)

  9. What a much healthier snack than Cheezels (which I indulge in once a year or so but still enjoy immensely!).

  10. Carolyn Jung says:

    Ooh, I want to dunk those in some creamy hummus, for sure. 😉

  11. Hotly Spiced says:

    What a great idea. Because I love lebanese bread toasted and dried out so much more than when it’s fresh. Love the image of the bread standing up in the glass – makes me want to reach for one!

  12. heidi says:

    Yes- this is so much better than Doritos!
    I love these with hummus. And baba ganoush.
    And all by themselves.
    Great idea!

  13. I’m not sure if I have tried Lebanese bread, but would love to try this easy and healthy bread stick. I love crispy snack!

  14. sugarpuffi says:

    ohh like a healthier version of chippies 😀

  15. My downfall are Doritos. I could eat a bag in one sitting. All it takes is one bite so these bread sticks sound perfect for the waistline and so easy to prepare. Thank you for sharing

  16. Yummy alternative to chips. This would pair well with a lot of HUMMUS 😀

  17. Celia says:

    These look very moreish, I’m sure they’ve be superb with a dip or in a fatoush salad. We make a cheaty low fat version of these by squishing un-oiled lebanese bread in a cafe press. Works well and keeps for ages too, although they end up more a water cracker than a flavoured treat.

  18. Kimby says:

    This is a great recipe! I’m not much of a “chip” eater, but it’s nice to have something crunchy (and flavorful) to snack on. Thanks!

  19. jaded says:

    Great idea! I’m doing this soon. :) Thanks for sharing the top tip!

  20. Yum! I love a sprinkle of parmesan on these too. So good to much :)

    Such a good idea! I have just been reading your post about your friends with the dogs, you look like you have such a great time – makes me want to move to Australia :)

  22. JasmyneTea says:

    I love when they have this at Lebanese weddings, except they’re normally deep-fried, lol. This looks much healthier!

  23. Yummy! They look great and so healthy! I’d love to try them with some Middle Eastern spices too!

  24. These are great. I do a similar thing using dukkha as my ‘spice’ topping.

  25. Hannah says:

    I have some za’atar that would surely be perfect in this! Yum yum crispiness :)

  26. tigerfish says:

    Time to check out on those Lebanese Bread!

  27. msihua says:

    What? Is that all there is? But it looks so pretty and professional! Shall make some for my next dinner party!!

  28. Yumm…
    What a co-incidence, as I am reading this post I am having hummus… God now only if I can grab one of these… Yumm….

  29. I use my George Foreman Grill to make these 😀 never thought to brush it with oil and sprinkle on herbs though, thanks for the tip!

  30. Winston says:

    Oh wow, I’m such a sucker for anything crispy, really. Yes, I’m that easily sold. But I like the idea of making own TV snacks instead of some (questionable) confectionary snacks from the supermarket. This will definitely gear me on the right track towards healthier eating. Nice one, dude!

    Healthier alternative for our tv time snack…
    Thank you 😀
