Homemade Pumpkin Seeds

Standard

Red Robin seasoning, Cinnamon/ Sugar, and Garlic/salt/pepper/paprika!

You all probably saw this one coming after the pumpkin carving how-to! Toasting up the pumpkin seeds is the best part about carving pumpkins, aside of course from the awesome jack-o-lanterns you get to enjoy when the sun goes down. But these toasted pumpkin seeds are a healthy snack you can enjoy all day long!

What you’ll need:

  • Non-stick cookie sheets
  • Cooking Spray
  • You’re favorite spices

Just take the pumpkin seeds that you saved from your pumpkin carving and clean them off. Don’t rinse them, because you don’t want to completely rid them of their delicious pumpkin flavor. Just make sure you pick out all the pumpkin chunks and pulp because these parts have the tendency to burn and stick to your cookie sheets in the oven. Spray your cookie sheets with the cooking spray, but not too much, we don’t want to affect the flavor of the seeds! After you’ve sprayed your cookie sheets, spread the pumpkin seeds out evenly. Now comes the time to get creative! I made a couple different batches so I could try out some different flavors. I made cinnamon/sugar, garlic/salt/pepper/paprika, and Red Robin seasoning…all were delicious! After you’ve seasoned your pumpkin seeds, pop them in the oven at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes. I like to bake the different flavors separately so that strong flavors, like my garlic ones, didn’t affect the flavor of the cinnamon sugar seeds. Have fun crunching away! What new flavors have you come up with?

Yumm!
