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.
My kids even love eating these, and they are usually pretty picky. I also feel totally fine feeding these seeds to them because they are healthy.
It’s also a fun recipe to make with little hands. My kids loved helping me make these, and separating them from the pumpkin insides.
how long do these stay good for?
This recipe, depending on what seasoning you do, will determine how long they last. If you are putting a lot of seasoning and butter, or other sweeter flavorings, they will lose their texture a little quicker and become quite soft.
We recommend eating them within 7-10 days after making them. Chances are, they won’t last 7-10 days because they are so delicious.
We keep ours in an airtight container, and put them in the pantry, after we have served them for a day or two, on the table. They usually last nicely for about 7 days.
do the seeds need to dry out before i bake them?
For this recipe, not necessarily. We do pat ours dry, and let them drain after they have been soaking in the water for little bit, but I wouldn’t say you need to let them sit out and dry.
You also baste them with olive or coconut oil, so they will be getting a little damp either way. You can let them dry out a little, but we usually do this after they have baked, to allow them to get a little crunchy.
