I saw this recipe last Friday and just thought the pumpkin seeds looked beautiful so I made them over the weekend.  A fun twist on a Halloween classic.

  • 1 ½ cup unshelled, raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 4 to 5 squirts olive oil spray


Preheat oven to 300F degrees.

Remove the seeds from the pumpkin and separate them from the stringy pulp and rinse the seeds in a colander under cold water. Shake off any excess water, spread the seeds on a baking sheet and roast for about 10 minutes or until seeds are dry, tossing halfway through.

In another small bowl, combine the onion powder, garlic powder, mustard, smoked paprika, cayenne, salt and brown sugar.
