"Pumpkin Pie" Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

The pumpkin gets a lot of love around this time of year with Halloween and Thanksgiving Day but most people just throw the seeds away. Don't throw them away!! They are so many yummy roasted pumpkin seed recipes out there from savory to sweet. I decided to try making a sweet version of roasted pumpkin seeds and they turned out great. It smelled like pumpkin pie was being cooked in my oven without all the hassle of making a pie... although it took awhile to get all the seeds away from the pumpkin pulp and cleaned. Can you buy plain pumpkin seeds at the grocery store? That would be a good shortcut to try this recipe out.

Happy Roasting!! If you have a favorite recipe for roasting pumpkin seeds, share them in the comment section below.

2 cups Raw Pumpkin Seeds, dried
1/3 cup Butter, melted
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1/4 tsp Ground Cloves

  1. PREHEAT oven to 150C. 
  2. TOSS all ingredients together until all pumpkin seeds are thoroughly coated.
  3. LAY them out in a even layer on a large baking sheet and place on the center shelf of your oven.
  4. ROAST for 45 minutes to 1 hour, turning them every 15 minutes. They are done when the mixture is dried on the pumpkin seeds and they have a nice golden color.
