DIY Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe

Don’t throw out the pumpkin seeds when making Halloween Jack-O-Lanterns, pumpkin seeds make great snacks that are rich in fiber as well as vitamins B and E. Kids especially love them. Purists will want only salt as a seasoning, but if you’re feeling adventurous, experiment and have fun with seasoning blends.  Last year I tried the garlic powder and salt and it was really good. I also went with the olive oil over the butter, and tried to keep up the healthy attributes.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons melted butter or melted oil (olive oil or vegetable oil work well)
  • salt

  • cajun seasoning (optional)
