Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Our new favourite way to use up the insides of our pumpkins! This tasty treat kept the kids happy long after they got bored from pumpkin carving. 

 1 cup of pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp of coconut oil 
4 tablespoons of brown sugar divided
1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice (you could totally add whatever combination of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg you want as well)
1/2 tsp of salt

1- Wash and dry pumpkin seeds.  

2- Lay flat on foil lined tray, Place in 275 oven for 45 minutes. Mix the spice, half the sugar and the salt together and set aside.

3- Melt coconut oil in a pan over medium high heat and add two tablespoons of sugar. 
It will start to caramelise after a couple minutes. Add the pumpkin seeds and stir.

4- When well coated, add the rest of spice mixture and stir until the sugar melts.

5- Let it cool and enjoy!

A great nutritious pre- Halloween treat before all the real sugar starts pouring in!


  1. I love the idea of using coconut oil for these! They sound SO good.

  2. I don't think I've ever had anything else on pumpkin seeds besides salt. I'll have to try this out sometime.

  3. This looks so good! Definitely going to have to try this!


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
