roasted spiced pumpkin seeds

October 28, 2010 § 1 Comment

Just yesterday, Dr. Oz mentioned that pumpkin seeds are chock-full of magnesium, iron, and zinc.  Well, I am glad I had my healthy dose of pumpkin seeds over the past week.  Mine were roasted as soon as I opened my pumpkin.

I made up this recipe aiming for a great-tasting snack, but was delightfully surprised at the wonderful aromatic scent that filled the air while roasting.  If only my house could smell like that all the time!

2 c pumpkin seeds

1 tsbp butter, melted

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp powdered sugar

1. Wash your pumpkin seeds and separate from strands.

2. Lay the seeds on a baking sheet and dry overnight.

3. Coat with melted butter and toss in the spices and powdered sugar to coat.

4. Bake in 300°F for 20 minutes.

Here is an informative article from USA Today explaining all the health benefits of pumpkin.
