Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

We carved our pumpkin last night, my favourite Halloween tradition! My second favourite Halloween tradition is roasting the seeds that come out of a newly carved jack’o’lantern. It is quick and easy, here’s how!

“Pumpkin seeds are high in protein, containing 9.3 g of protein per 1 oz serving size. (They also) contain 3.8 g (1 percent RDA) of carbohydrates of which 1.1 g is dietary fiber and 0.3 g is sugar per 1 oz serving size.” (Source:

  • Wash all the gunk from the pumpkin off your seeds with some water and a strainer.


  • Lay the seeds out on a paper towel to absorb the water from rinsing.


  • Use a non stick baking sheet or pan (I love my Pampered Chef stoneware for this!) and spread the seeds out. Then add some olive oil to lightly coat the seeds.


  • Sprinkle on some spices. I used sea salt and this Epicure Garlicky Dill seasoning, because I am currently obsessed with it.


  • Get your hands in there and mix it all up.


  • Toss them in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 15-25 minutes. I just keep an eye on them and shake them up about every 5 mins. Remove when they are nice and golden.


  • Snack away!
