Perfect Pumpkin Seeds

Whether you’re carving a Jack O Lantern or making a pie, you’ll likely have some pumpkin seeds kicking around this fall. Here’s my recipe to turn them into a delicious, healthy snack.


Pumpkin seeds

Olive oil (enough to lightly coat the seeds)

Salt (to taste)

Pepper (optional)


After carving my Jack O Lantern, I rinsed all the pumpkin goo off the seeds in my colander. Then I let them dry on a clean tea towel. Once they were dry I preheated the oven to 350F.


I placed them in the bowl and added enough oil to lightly coat the seeds. I sprinkled on some salt and pepper and tossed to combine.


I spread the seeds evenly onto a parchment lined baking sheet and popped them in the oven.


I baked them for 25 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so. Once they were cooled, Nick and I started snacking on them. If you have any left over you can store them in Ziploc bags. Happy snacking!
