Homemade Roasted Pumpkin Seed Recipe



My husband loves to bake so this time of the year I get excited when he goes to the farmers market and purchases baking pumpkins so he can make his homemade pumpkin pies. (I will share that recipe with you soon). I like to roast the pumpkin seeds from these sweet little baking pumpkins. Here is an easy recipe on how to roast delicious and flavorful pumpkin seeds.

 There just not enough seeds in pumpkins because my kids got a hold of them and scarfed them down quickly!

  1. Fresh pumpkin seeds
  2. Olive Oil
  3. Salt (I use Himalayan Salt)
  1. After scooping the pumpkins seeds from the pumpkin and getting them rinsed and cleaned lay the seeds on a dish towel and dry over night. Then place the seeds in a bowl and drizzle 1 tbsp. of olive oil and salt (your preference on the amount) over the pumpkin seeds and give a quick toss with your fingers. Next spread out on a baking sheet and back on 300 degrees for 30 minutes.
