Cinnamon & Sugar Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Write a review
  1. 1 - 1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds cleaned and patted dry
  2. 2 tablespoons sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  4. 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  5. 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  6. 1 - 1 1/2 teaspoon melted butter or olive oil
  1. Heat oven to 300°.
  2. Rinse seeds well and get as much of the pumpkin pulp off of them as possible (your not going to get it all but as much as possible).
  3. Pat dry with paper towels. Don't let them dry completely on the paper towels, because they might stick!
  4. Toss seeds with the butter or oil, sugar, and spices.
  5. Spread coated seeds in a shallow baking sheet and bake for about 45 to 60 minutes, or until nicely browned and crunchy. You will need to turn the seeds from time to time while your roasting the pumpkin seeds.

    I’ve never considered sweet pumpkin seeds! I’m going to have to try this!
    Also, great tip about not letting the seeds dry too much on the paper towels, they are sticky little buggers aren’t they?!

    Got to say never eaten pumpkin nuts, but this look an interesting and creative way to eat them. Of course who can say no to cinnamon. 🙂 The photo makes it even more enticing. Fabulous.

    I’ve got to make these! I love roasted pumpkin seeds, but I’ve never tried flavoring them before. This looks great!

    I remember eating pumpkin seeds as a kid, and my kids have been asking me to make them some.

    This sounds delish! My son wants to do something cool with his pumpkin seeds, so this sounds perfect.

  • Jenna Wood

    Fresh baked pumpkin sees are always my favorite part of carving a pumpkin. I usually just salt mine, but this will make for a nice treat this year!

  • Kathleen Bailey

    Mmm great idea. I’ve never tried them with cinnamon or sugar.
