Below is one of my favorite pumpkin seed recipes, compliments of Real Simple.
You Will Need:
2 cups of fresh pumpkin seeds, cleaned and patted dry
2 Tbs melted butter
2 Tbs sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
Spread the seeds out on a cookie sheet and bake for 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from oven and increase the temperature to 350 degrees.
Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl and add the seeds. Toss to coat. Spread back on the cookie sheet and bake another 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
This is a great snack option and kids tend to love it. Best of all, pumpkin seeds are chock full of fiber, zinc, Vitamin E, manganese, protein, iron, and magnesium.
