One of my favorite parts of the fall season is definitely the roasted pumpkin seeds. It makes all of the hard and time-consuming work carving and scooping out the pumpkins worth it after you’ve roasted up a batch of these!
No matter which flavor variation you choose it’s all very simple – just a little mixing up of the seasonings and placing them in the oven and in no time you have a yummy (and healthy) snack! Did you know that pumpkin seeds contain zinc, protein and antioxidants? Those tiny little seeds are packed with nutrition, making them not just delicious, but also good for you!

Those are just two of the most basic pumpkin seed recipes to get you started. Once you try one of these, though, you’ll be hooked and can easily find dozens of different flavor variations.
