Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

These delicious Roasted Pumpkin Seeds are perfectly seasoned and roasted for a crunchy, healthy and EASY snack that kids love to help make!

Once you’ve scooped the seeds out of your pumpkin you can fill the inside with a delicious meat and rice dinner and cook dinner in a pumpkin!

When eating pumpkin seeds you can eat the whole thing: the shell and the kernel inside. I like to buy smaller pumpkins so the seeds are not too big. Eating the whole seeds provides the most nutrients and the most flavor, since the seasonings coat the shells.

I season my pumpkin seeds simply, with salt or seasoned salt, but you can really add whatever spices you like including pepper, garlic powder and paprika.

How to Roast Pumpkin Seeds:

1. Remove seeds from pumpkin.
