Halloween and Thanksgiving have come and gone but pumpkin seeds have managed to linger in my household. I can’t get enough of them. They are my go-to nosh and I can only hope they are lower in cals than my old daily habit – handfuls and handfuls…and handfuls of mixed nuts.

How to: Cinnamon and Sugar / Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

You will need:
2 cups of fresh pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons of butter
For cinnamon and sugar pumpkin seeds: 2 tsp of sugar, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla
For spicy pumpkin seeds: 1 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp of ground pepperoncino flakes and 1/2 tsp of paprika

1.Wash seeds well, pat dry with paper towels and place in bowl(s).

2. Melt butter. For the cinnamon and sugar seeds add 2 tsp of sugar, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla to your butter. For spicy seeds add 1 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp of ground pepperoncino flakes and 1/2 tsp of paprika to your butter. Pour butter mixture over seeds and toss.

3. Spread seeds on on a well-greased cookie sheet and bake on 300 f0r 30-40 minutes, stirring occasional. Keep an eye out as they burn fast!

  1. Hi I’ll take 7 lbs please. But if they don’t get here in two hours, I’ll be forced to buy some regular ass pumpkin seeds from the liquor store and then I’ll be all disappointed and shit. Thanks for ruining my day.
