Snack Attack - Fruit Salsa & Cinnamon/Sugar Chips

A while back I made some homemade cinnamon sugar chips and fruit salsa and was requested to make it again for a birthday party.  I had forgotten how easy and fairly healthy the fruit and chips were.  So I thought I'd take a minute and share the recipe for this delicious (and healthy) snack.  

What you'll need:

Fruit Salsa & Cinnamon/Sugar Chips
Fruit of your choice (I usually use strawberries, kiwi, apple and pineapple)
Tortillas (any will do plain, wheat, brown rice)
Cinnamon/Sugar mix (i do more cinnamon than sugar but you can make them to your desired taste)
EVOO (extra virgin olive oil - you could also use vegetable oil or butter but that would take a bit away from the healthiness aspect!)

{great tools - sugar shaker from Pampered Chef and a spray bottle - mine came from Sur La Table on clearance - just mix water and EVOO and BAM! homemade Pam (and on another note - I've been using this homemade Pam for awhile now and I L.O.V.E it.  I even use it on pans when i do a cake and the cakes come out flawlessly from the pan, you can find the recipe for it here.  You have NO reason not to use this, save some money and some not so great stuff from going into your body, win-win)}

Cut up your fruit and mix it all together in a large bowl - some recipes say to add jam or sugar but really why?  The fruit juice is sweetness enough.  Add a sprinkle of cinnamon to coat the fruit.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Spray baking pans with  your new awesome homemade cooking spray.  Stack tortillas about 4 high and cut into triangles.  Do whatever size fits your needs.  Lay the tortilla triangles on the baking sheet and spray with more of the homemade cooking spray.  Sprinkle cinnamon/sugar mixture over the triangles.  Bake for 5-7 minutes.  Let cool for a few minute - the chips will get crispier as they cool.  and enjoy! A delicious and good for you snack.

And for a not so healthy snack you could always eat a cupcake!  Last weekend I made some Lucky Charms cupcakes with marshmallow butter cream for St. Patty's Day.  They obviously didn't make it to St. Patty's day but... 

{they're magically delicious}

We have a writer!  She's been doing extremely well writing the letter 'E' - and picking it out everywhere!  But tonight she sat down and wrote out her whole name.  Just out of the blue she knows how.  Never ceases to amaze me.

And that is that.
