Its pumpkin carving week and that means it’s time to make one of our favorite healthy snacks! We love saving our seeds after carving and roasting our pumpkin seeds, sprinkled with our favorite flavors. Pumpkin seeds are awesome when added to granola or trail mix, and even better with topped with some amazing flavors like the two we are sharing today!
After removing seeds from the pumpkin, try removing most of the excess pumpkin from the seeds.
In a large bowl, rinse and soak seeds in water for 5 minutes, allowing all extra pumpkin to sink to bottom of bowl. We like to stir the around a little with our hands to loosen some of the pumpkin that may be sticking.
Pat dry seeds with dish towel.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees, and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, mix together seeds, oil, and which ever flavor you choose to do.
Spread seeds evenly across baking sheet. If you are doing two flavors at once, be sure to keep the flavors separated. Avoid stacking seeds to make sure they roast evenly.
Bake for 30 minutes, rotating and flipping halfway through.
Let the seeds cool for about 15 minutes, allowing them to get crunchy.
