It’s fall, y’all! Yay! The leaves are changing and the air is crisp. Pumpkins are popping up around every corner around here. Pumpkin carving time is here! So if you’re getting ready to carve pumpkins, be sure to save those pumpkin seeds to make these Spicy T0asted Pumpkin Seeds.

 

These Spicy T0asted Pumpkin Seeds couldn’t be easier. Toss the seeds with a few seasonings, send it to the oven for a quick visit and you’ll have a tasty and healthy snack in no time. Yes, healthy! Did you know that pumpkin seeds, as well as other hard squash seeds and kernels, are a good source of Protein, Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamin E and Vitamin B-complex?

 

Scrape the innards out of the pumpkin (or squash), separate the seeds from the squishy, stringy stuff, then rinse and spread the seeds out on paper towels to dry. Once they are dry, toss them with you favorite seasoning combo. Then spread them evenly on a baking sheet and bake until toasted.

 

For this recipe, I used a spicy combo with a bit of olive oil. A sweet mix, like cinnamon, sugar, and butter would be pretty tasty too! Do not hesitate to adjust the seasoning proportions to your liking. The easy recipe below is just a guideline. Be creative! Make it yours! And be sure to keep a watchful eye while the pumpkin seeds are baking to avoid burning as ovens can vary in cook times. These do not take very long to toast.

 

These Spicy Toasted Pumpkin Seeds are a great snack option for movie night, or to pack along for that next football game or road trip. They will disappear real quick, so make sure to pack plenty.
