Pumpkin Seed Recipe

Cold weather always gives people an excuse to put on a little extra weight. Hey, I’m all for the big holiday meals and seasonal eating. But, what if there were healthy autumn snacks that still tasted great? Pumpkin seeds have always embodied the fall spirit, and it’s a relatively healthy snack (with moderation) that you can eat to keep your stomach busy. For this reason, I’ve found two different variations of pumpkin seed recipes that I have to share with you. These recipes are easy to make from home and a perfect snack for businesses to sell.


Recipe #1

Roasted Pumpkin Seed Recipes: Spicy Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

Personally, I can’t handle spice. When I say I can’t handle it, I mean “mild” at Buffalo Wild Wings gives me a run for my money. Regardless, I certainly acknowledge that there are plenty of other people who love spice, so I found this awesome recipe just for you. As a business, it’s important to consider what your customers might like too. To prepare these pumpkin seeds, you will need:

  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt
  • Cayenne Powder
  • Olive Oil
It takes a mere 5 ingredients to make. Once you have gathered all the essential resources, it’s time to start cooking. 
  • First, preheat your oven to a toasty 375 degrees.
  • Then, take all ingredients and mix them together in a pot until the seeds are coated and all elements are blended.
  • Finally, evenly place your seeds on a cooking tray and place in the oven for around 20 minutes, or until browned.
Be sure to monitor the seeds while they are cooking in the oven. To learn more about this tasty recipe, check out this blog.

Since it is the season, I recommend actually getting a pumpkin and carving out the seeds. After that, let the seeds sit and dry for as long as it takes.
