Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

I’m posting this a couple of days early in case some of you still have pumpkin seeds you need to use up. We have a lot of pumpkin seeds from carving 5 pumpkins and this is a recipe we like to make once we’ve scooped out all the guts and washed off all the slimy stuff.


I’ve heard that for more even baking, it’s good to boil the seeds first for 10 minutes, then dry and then bake, so that’s what I do and it’s worked well. I mix up the seeds with the oil and the spices right on the sheet pan (with a silicone liner) and then spread them out and bake.



Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

2-2 1/2 c raw whole pumpkin seeds (washed and dried)
1 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sea salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Dump washed and dried seeds on a jelly roll/sheet pan lined with silicone or parchment. Drizzle with coconut oil and sprinkle with spices. Stir together and spread out over pan. Bake 1 hour.

*for more even baking, I’ve found it helpful to boil the seeds in salty water for 10 minutes, drying them and then roasting them in the oven.
