roasted pumpkin seeds

Carving pumpkins is a blast, but it is also a giant goddamn mess. If you’re like us, you’re probably used to dumping all those gross pumpkin innards out with the trash once your Jack o’Lantern masterpiece is complete. This year, however, we’re imploring you to save those seeds in order to make this delicious and healthy cinnamon-spiced snack.
 

 

Roasted Pumpkin Seed Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 1 Tbs cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. clove
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. coconut sugar
  • Pumpkin seeds (as many as you can fish out of that big ol’ gourd)

Prep the Pumpkin Seeds

  1. Dig the insides out of a large pumpkin, separating the seeds as best you can from the rest of the gunk.
  2. Rinse pumpkin seeds thoroughly.
  3. Dry lightly and set aside.

Make Your Spiced Butter

  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
  2. Add all dry ingredients (minus pumpkin seeds) to the pan, and stir to mix.
  3. Add pumpkin seeds to the pan, stirring to coat.

Roast Your Pumpkin Seeds

  1. Dump entire contents of saucepan onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, spreading the seeds out evenly.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, turning seeds halfway through cooking.
  3. Let the roasted pumpkin seeds cool, then try not to eat them all in one sitting.

Do you have a favorite fall tradition? Obviously, ours include adding pumpkin to everything and dressing Sailor up in Halloween costumes. (Actually, Eric hates this little ritual, but I think that dogs wearing costumes are just about the funniest shit on the planet. Don’t you agree?! Feel free to back me up in the comments.)

Pumpkin spice and all things nice,
