Roasted Pumpkin Seed Recipe!

Fall means pumpkin season and pumpkin carving with the kids or grandkids is always a good time. However, no matter how much carving or filling we are doing, we should not waste food! Hang on to the pumpkin seeds, as they are a source in the Paleo diet and to be a satisfying, crunchy treat! Pumpkin seeds are also a good source of protein, magnesium, zinc, and omega-3s.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

This is vegan, gluten-free and fits perfect for the holiday season!

Ingredients

1 cup pumpkin seeds

2 tsp olive oil

1 tsp cumin

½  tsp garlic salt

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp paprika

Dash of cayenne pepper and cinnamon 

Directions

  1. .  Clean out that pumpkin!
  2. .  Wash the pulp from the seeds (soaking the seeds in warm water for an hour will help this process).
  3. .   Allow the seeds to dry for 24 hours.
  4. .   Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  5. .   Combine all ingredients and place in 8×8 pan, coating the seeds with the seasoning mixture.

This can be a great snack during your Paleo Challenge!

Stay focused,
