Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

As you carve your pumpkins into festive decorations this fall, be sure to set aside the seeds! Below is my favorite crunchy, savory autumn snack.


  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder


As you carve your pumpkins, set aside the seeds in a bowl.

Preheat your oven to 400°.

Rinse your pumpkin seeds and pick out all pumpkin strings and chunks.

Toss your seeds in the olive oil and seasonings.

Spread evenly on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for approximately 30 minutes, tossing at the halfway point.

*watch closely to make sure they don’t burn.

Let cool and enjoy!
