These crunchy, salty, roasted pumpkin seeds are super simple to make—and hard not to eat in just one sitting! Add a hint of nutmeg or cinnamon to spice them up a bit.
Roasted pumpkin seeds are a perfect fall snack and a much healthier alternative to the usual Halloween treats of the season!
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium-size bowl, toss seeds in oil to coat. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Bake about 10 minutes and stir. Bake 5 minutes longer, or until lightly toasted. Transfer to a large shallow plate to cool before serving.
If you prefer, you may toast seeds on the stovetop. Warm a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add oil, then seeds, and stir well to coat. Spread mixture in an even layer; stir often until seeds are lightly toasted. Season with salt. Transfer to a large shallow plate to cool before serving.
