Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

This is a recipe that I’ve had for a while but haven’t made for quite some time! You can have fun and experiment with different flavors and seasonings to find your favorite. We want to try them with some maple syrup one time!

Roasted pumpkin seeds have a lot of different health benefits as well. You can read more about them HERE.

You can also use this recipe for seeds from winter squashes, like spaghetti squash and butternut squash, as well.
