Recipe: pumpkin seeds!






With a pumpkin carving party under our belt; we knew we had a tasty snack in store on Sunday. It's been a tradition that my husband and I look forward to every year and one that's actually better for you than candy!

Here's a quick, simple recipe - you'll enjoy every bit of this savory treat. Perfect for football noshing!

You'll need:
  • pumpkin seeds
  • paprika or chili powder
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
Set your oven to 400 degrees. On a large baking sheet, drizzle olive oil. Rinse the pumpkin innards off your seeds and dry off on a clean towel. Spread an even layer on your baking sheet. Add a pinch of sea salt, chili powder and pepper. You can use paprika, too - I lean towards chili powder because I favor a little more heat. With a spatula, mix and coat the seeds thoroughly. Place in oven for 25-30 minutes {pending on your oven} and keep a watchful eye for a golden hue. 

Let cool and enjoy. Happy healthy Halloween snacking!

P.S. A friend told us to add a dab of honey, too. Sweet and savory!
