Hi all! Thanks so much for checking out this (awesome!) recipe!
For more images, tips, and recipes, be sure to follow me on Instagram HERE!


Confession: I dislike all pumpkin flavored things.
You won't see this girl eating pumpkin pie during the holidays, or sipping a good old Starbucks PSL in her Instagram pictures like the rest of the world.

Count me out of the cool crowd during the fall season, because I just can't do it. Now, pumpkin seeds are the anomaly here...because in my mind they taste NOTHING like pumpkins. Even though they...well...make pumpkins. Or come from them? Chicken and the egg scenario here, people. 

Anyways, getting off track. Besides being delicious when roasted, they also bring back sweet memories of roasting them with my mom after carving pumpkins with my dad and bringing them to my favorite elementary school teachers. This Sunday was a rainy, rainy day- and roasting up some seeds while staying cozy inside just seemed like the right thing to do. 
Thus, I present you with the BEST roasted pumpkin seeds ever:
the BEST roasted pumpkin seed recipe- seriously need to make these!

What you'll need to make it happen:
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
parchment paper

How to make it happen (hold on to your hats, this is a doozy kids):
Step 1: Wash your pumpkin seeds off to get rid of as much pumpkin goop as possible. You can leave some in, but if you're a pumpkin-phobe like me, get it outta there!
Step 2: Toss your seeds with your olive oil and spices and spread out evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet. 
Step 3: Bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes, taking them out and stirring/flipping halfway through.
Step 4: Let cool for a minute and enjoy!

(difficult, right?)

Are you a roasted pumpkin seed fan too?
Any one else hate all other things pumpkin? No? Anyone?

  1. Yum yum yum! These look fantastic! and I have to disagree with you on the pumpkin...I love it!!!

  2. my husband is going to love these! Thanks for the recipe :)


  3. The BEST part about carving the pumpkin is letting the seed bake while you are at work! Such a fun treat to come back to!

  4. Roasting pumpkin seeds was one of my favorite things to do after carving pumpkins growing up. We usually just salted ours, but this year I definitely want to mix up the flavors. Yours look SO yummy!

  5. We are the same here!
    When it comes to eating or drinking pumpkin flavored things you can pretty much count me out! But roast some pumpkin seeds after carving the pumpkins and I am all over that! They are seriously amazing! The hubs finally got me to try them last year and now it will be a yearly tradition!

  6. I'm the same way about pumpkin-flavored food and drinks, but I promise SBUX PSL doesn't really taste much like pumpkin at all. I was hesitant to try it until I had a sip of my mom's last year. It's hard to explain; it really just tastes like the holidays. Ha ha! I LOVE roasting pumpkin seeds, so I will definitely be using this recipe soon:)

  7. We just picked up a few pumpkins last night at our patch! Ross was saying we ARE roasting the seeds this year! This post was perfect timing! ;) Thanks, lady! Yummy!

  8. These look great...and nice pics! I don't love a lot of pumpkin things but I do roast tons of pumpkins seeds every year. I go to a pumpkin carving party and get people to give me all the seeds, I end up with several large ziplock bags! I will say that I don't wash the seeds, I remove large chunks of goop but I have found that not rinsing them gives an added (and not necessarily) pumpkin flavor. You should try it...it saves a step!

  9. OH how I love pumpkin seeds - these looks delicious, and I can't wait to try! I am your newest follower - hope you'll visit my blog and follow it as well if you enjoy! xo


  10. yes second blogger today who posted about pumpkin seeds! i love it, they are a great snack and you can season them anyway you like them!

  11. These look amazing! I am pinning this for when we carve pumpkins!

  12. These look delicious! I am home for fall break and I think I am going to try out this recipe in the next few days!! Hope you are having a wonderful week.

  13. I`m going to have to go get another pumpkin and make these! Yum! xx

  14. Just made these this morning, I eyeballed the measurements and subbed onion powder for cayenne (we ain't so spicy in Ohio!). Delish! I'm going to eat them all in about 5 seconds.

  30. I just made these and I LOVE the spice mix and will make these again, but I'll either cut the salt in half or eliminate it altogether. Thank you!

    1. great to hear you enjoyed them! they are pretty salty- hope you love them even more once you've tweaked the recipe! xo, lp

  31. I used pink himalayan salt, which was fabulous. However, I think next time I will substitute half the cayenne for onion powder, since my husband was the only one who wasn't begging for a glass of milk to cut the fire! Other than that, these were the best pumpkin seeds we've ever had.

    1. onion powder sounds like a great change! glad you enjoyed!!

  32. Eating the pumpkin seeds is my favorite part of carving pumpkins! This version looks amazing :D

  33. I am happy to read your blog. This article is very informative and helpful for me to understand better about the roasted seeds. Also I like the roasted seeds of The Nut House.

  34. Nicely explained how to roast pumpkin seeds. You must get good quality pumpkin seeds. You can get pumpkin seeds online as well as offline.

  35. Seeds are excellent ways to grow veggies at home.

  36. This article is great, thank you for your creativity.
    I was also looking for pornographic content and came across these great sites.

  37. Thanks for a really very informative and detailed article. You have provided all the relevant information any one can ask about Pumpkin seeds. Recipe provided by you is really good but, I must add Flabites provides quality Pumpkin Seeds online at best rates.

  38. Hi, I just wanted to say that I loved reading your post about roasting pumpkin seeds. I especially loved the idea that you can let the seeds bake while you're at work! That's such a fun idea!

  39. I tried the pumpkins recipe today and they were delicious. I did put an extra shake of salt as the recipe
    said to but it really doesn’t need it. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you!
