With all the chocolatey Halloween treats out there, roasted pumpkin seeds are still one of my favorites. High in fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals and low in fat, they are perfectly munchable, and when you consider every carving pumpkin comes with a free batch economical too. Its easy to roast them plain, with salt is delicious, but try adding spices like chili powder, curry, or flavored popcorn shakers to make them even more spooktacular. They make great party or lunchbox snacks.
The key to crispy roasted pumpkin seeds is to wash all the sludge off get rid of the bits of stringy pumpkin and if you like, pat them dry with paper towel.
Spread them out in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet if you line it with parchment or a silpat mat, youll save yourself some cleaning afterward and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with salt and any spices you like, and toss them around with your hands to coat.
Roast at 400F, stirring once or twice, until golden and crispy. Enjoy!
