Cinnamon Toast Pumpkin Seeds
These highly addictive Cinnamon Toast Pumpkin Seeds are super easy to make with just a few simple ingredients - great for snacking or to give as a gift!
Servings 4 people
- 3 Tbsp butter melted
- 4 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/ tsp salt
- 1.5 C pumpkin seeds cleaned and dried
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Place a large piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet and set aside.
Mix butter, cinnamon, sugar, and salt together in a bowl.
Add pumpkin seeds and stir to coat evenly. Spread the seeds in a single layer on your baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven, stirring every 10 minutes, until seeds are lightly browned.
Remove the pumpkin seeds from the oven and allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
Can substitute butter with coconut oil or olive oil (not extra virgin) if desired.
If using unsalted butter, add 1/2 tsp salt in lieu of 1/4 tsp salt. The salt provides a nice balance between the sweet.
Feel free to add pumpkin pie spice for added flavor (1/2 tsp per batch).
Watch your oven temp!
Anything over 300 degrees F and the seeds will cook too quickly and you'll risk burning the spices. Try to stay between 275 degrees F and 300 degrees F for best results.
