Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

After carving a handful of pumpkins this season for my pumpkin dips, Matt decided to make a deal with me. For every pumpkin he cleans out for my dip, I have to bake the seeds for him. Deal. Actually, easiest deal ever because I hate cleaning out the pumpkins and I love roasted pumpkin seeds!

Oh, and
did you know that pumpkin seeds are a healthy snack that helps
strengthen your bones and reduce cholesterol? That makes one more reason
not to toss your seeds!

So here is how I seasoned these little



tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

and pepper

pinch cinnamon

pinch cumin

pinch cayenne pepper

tablespoon honey

1. Spread
pumpkin seeds on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

2. Remove
seeds from oven and toss with olive oil, cinnamon, cumin, cayenne, and honey in
a bag or Tupperware container.

3. Spread
pumpkin seeds back onto the baking sheet and lightly sprinkle salt and pepper
to taste. Return to oven and roast coated seeds until golden, about 10-12
minutes. Scrape from pan and stir seeds as they cool to prevent sticking.

A sweet and spicy fall snack {or salad

    I'm so glad you posted this!! We gutted our pumpkins and I saved the seeds but wasn't sure where to start with roasting them, lol! I've never done it before. I just pinned your "recipe" though so I can't wait to do this- thanks! 🙂
