MMmmm…hold on a sec… I gotta mouthful of today’s post…aight, I’m good… Hello! These Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Pumpkin Seeds are deeeelicious! I can’t stop snacking on them.
These are very easy too, the hardest part is ripping the guts out of the pumpkin. All you need is:
1 1/2 C Pumpkin Seeds
1 1/2 T Unsalted Butter
1 1/2 T Brown Sugar
1 t Cinnamon
1 pinch Kosher Salt
Get all the seeds out of the pumpkin and rinse.
Try to get as much as the pumpkin guts off them as you can. Then, lay the seeds on a clean kitchen towel and let dry, they might stick a little but that’s okay. Place dried seeds in a bowl and spray with a few shots of pam. Then, lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
Roast these at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. While seeds are roasting, combine the remaining ingredients in a microwave safe bowl or mug. Microwave in 15 second intervals until melted. After 30 minutes place seeds back in bowl and toss with the butter mix.
Place these back on a sheet tray in a single layer and let cook for an additional 15 minutes. Stir once in the middle of the 15 minutes. Then, take them out and let cool, enjoy!
You should keep these in a air tight container and leave out at room temp. Perfect for a snack any time, on top of a sweet potato casserole or pumpkin pie!
