Simple Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

These Simple Roasted Pumpkin Seeds are a must in our house during the fall. It just isn’t Fall if you’re not carving pumpkins, roasting pumpkins seeds, and making homemade pumpkin puree!

When I was growing up my parents were all about traditions!  It didn’t matter which holiday it was we had traditions! Halloween was always one of my favorite holidays because we had so many exciting things we did. These are traditions that I looked forward to as a child all year long. It brought a different kind of magic to the cooling weather and the autumn leaves. I remember how exciting it was going to pick out the perfect pumpkin to carve! Tip: if you plan on carving your pumpkin always try to find one with a flat side. It excites me that I am now able to share these sweet traditions with my own children. I still get a little giddy when I find my pumpkin!

I would love to hear what your favorite Halloween traditions are too!  Be sure to leave them in the comment section.  I love hearing from each and every one of you!

For this recipe, there are only a few simple steps. I start off by getting the pumpkin seeds out of my pumpkin, cleaning them and then adding the extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.

Preheat your oven to 300F and put them on a baking sheet in the oven for 20 minutes. Pumpkin seeds can burn fast so keep an eye on them for the last 15- 20 minutes.

These are perfect for the Fall weather. I am certain these are going to be a hit for everyone that gets to taste them. I hope you feel the magic of the changing seasons as you make this yummy roasted pumpkin seed recipe! Enjoy!

  1. Stumbled over here from your pumpkin purée instant pot recipe.
    The way I’ve always done pumpkin seeds is a bit healthier.
    Wash the seeds. Toss with salt, or cinnamon and sugar. Or barbecue seasoning!
    Spread them out in a pan. Put them in a 200 degree oven overnight.
    Check for crispness in the morning. Shake the pan and give a few more hours if needed.
    Easy, and no extra fat 🙂
