Roasted Pumpkin Seeds: Perfect Wheat-Free Snack
The holiday’s are upon us! With Halloween out of the way, Thanksgiving and Christmas madness is ramping up…which means lots of pumpkins, pies, turkey and other delicious goodies. Homemade roasted pumpkin seeds are one of my favorite snacks during the holiday season.
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
-Buy a pumpkin (preferably from a local farm!)
-Scoop out all of the seeds.
-Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
-Put in colander and run under warm water.
-Pat dry with a paper towel.
-Spread seeds out and lay flat on a cookie sheet.
-Sprinkle a seasoning blend of your choosing over seeds (feel free to well saturate). Trader Joe’s has a great, all natural seasoning blend for this.
-Bake seeds for 15 minutes.
-Flip seeds over to other side. Sprinkle with more seasoning (if desired).
-Bake another 15 minutes or until crisp.
Let cool and then enjoy!
Place in individual snack bags for easy snacking at work, or scoop into a decorative bowl to have out for snacking purposes.
