Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Seeds

You see those colors? we finally hit fall here, I love it! Trees look as if they are on fire, when I go outside I start to see my breath, and my scarf collection is starting to get some love again- now its just time to start incorporating some fall in my meals! This screams pumpkinnnnnsss- convenient for halloween next week- lets carve those suckers up!

Here is our beauty….now just to see what my husband is up to…..

The artist is hard at work….you see that focus??

What a masterpiece! haah our very own wiener dog Lucy is even in the spirit 🙂

And now for the insides! Don’t trash those seeds- time to start baking. Usually I will make a few different flavors, garlic- salted-or cinnamon sugar? Yep, cinnamon sugar it is.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter (or olive oil)
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

After washing the seeds (it’s ok if there is a little pumpkin still on them, it will roast off when we bake) then coat seeds in butter or olive oil. Next comes all the other seasonings- time to get hands on- literally! Then pop in oven at 350 F for about 30 mins or until seeds are golden brown.

yummmmmmmm

Be sure to store in a tin or mason jar or something air tight so they don’t get stale.

Thanks for zestin pumpkin seeds today!
