Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

I recently served these to some friends who were over for girls night… they were a huge hit.  Everyone kept asking what was in them… So, I guess I shall share my recipe. 

These also make a wonderful, healthy snack for the kids.  Mine get super excited everytime I make them!  When they are cooking they say it smells like popcorn.  And since going grain free, I’ve been missing my popcorn… so these little guys surely fill the void for crunchy, salty goodness.

    • Sorry for not putting up the recipe sooner! I have 3 pumpkins on my porch still, maybe I’ll share some of my seeds :P

  • Is there a way to search for recipes on this blog? I saw a reference to brownies that I’d like to bake but I don’t see a search button so I can find it :(

  • I love these!!! Not only do they smell like popcorn they taste like it too! I made your pumpkin purée and some butternut squash and roasted all the seeds together…..so yummy! I left out the ginger as I’m not a fan of it but they were still wonderful!!! Thanks for the recipe :)
