Fall Cravings: Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds contain sources of magnesium, zinc, tryptophan, omega-3s, fibre, and more. These sources have great health and anti-inflammatory benefits, and will even help you sleep better. So good, you can’t just have one!!

Ingredients:

Pumpkin Seeds, rinsed and patted dry

Coconut Oil spray

Himalayan Salt (1 – 2 tsps, optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Spread rinsed seeds in single layer on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray the top of the seeds, and sprinkle Himalayan salt to coat them.

Bake on the top oven rack until the seeds begin to brown, 10 to 20 minutes (depends on the size of the seeds).

Let cool, and enjoy!

Store the remaining (if there are any!) in airtight container.

Some other great ideas for pumpkin seeds:

  • mix pumpkin seeds into some dried fruit and nuts for a nutritous homemade granola
  • top your salad or sprinkle your yogurt with pumpkin seeds
  • blend whole, raw pumpkin seeds in a food processor to make pumpkin seed butter
