  • 0.5 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon canola or sunflower seed oil
  • dash salt


Use the seeds from an hollowed out pumpkin for this tasty treat. The recipe can easily be doubled. Baking times will vary, so keep an eye while the oven while baking. Drying the seeds overnight will decrease the baking time. Times may vary based on type of oil used or size of seeds. For a Cajun version, add 1/2 tsp. Cajun seasoning (or seasoned salt), 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce and 2 drops of Tabasco pepper sauce.
