For this recipe, you can use the pumpkin seeds from your soon-to-be Jack O’ Lanterns to make a fun family tradition.  I always loved to make roasted pumpkin seeds from our pumpkin picks!  While everyone else threw their seeds away, we turned ours into a homey snack.

Whether you go with fresh pumpkin seeds this fall or buy your seeds in bulk form from the health food store, these seeds are a quick roast away from becoming a delicious snack. Perfect for grazing on, but also great to toss into salads.  Leave them in clusters or break them up.  Either way, they’re habit forming and fun to eat!!

Honey Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Yield: Serves 4 - 6

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 cups raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup raw shelled sunflower seeds
  • 3 tablespoons raw chia seeds

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Directions:

  3. Stir to blend
  4. Remove from heat
  5. Add the pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and chia seeds to the honey and coconut oil mix.
  6. Using a silicone spatula, stir to blend the seeds until evenly coated.
  7. Lay the seeds evenly on a cookie sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the seeds turn golden and light brown, stirring every 5 minutes so they evenly bake.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool completely.  Will stick together like brittle.  Break into desired sized pieces.
