Roasted Pumpkin Seeds {Recipe} ~ Happy Halloween!

  We're getting into the Halloween spirit today by baking up some yummies! It's a Fall tradition of mine to make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, and I feel as though I've perfected the recipe this year! Plus, in past years I have epic-failed at making roasted pumpkin seeds. I either completely forget about them in the over while baking or I just get lay and let them dry out too much before baking. This year I am determined!

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Fresh pumpkin seeds, rinsed
Olive oil
Salt
Seasonings (optional)

  Easy-peasy snack to make! Heat the oven to 300F. Clean any pulp bits off your seeds and toss with a small amount of olive oil in a bowl. I used Mardona's garlic olive oil, yum! Sprinkle on salt and any desired seasonings (cayenne pepper, curry powder, garlic salt, etc.) For these I used fine ground sea salt and a few dashes of chili powder. Spread a single layer of seeds on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 30-45 minutes. Enjoy your fiber-packed snack with your family!
