- Sea salt or garlic salt
- Chili powder to make it a bit spicy (optional)
- Coconut oil preferred but you can use butter
Carve the pumpkin like you normally would. Reserve the seeds. Don't worry about cleaning out all the stringy webbing from the seeds. That will just give your roasted seeds more flavor.
Season them with either seas salt or garlic salt. If you don't have garlic salt, just plain ordinary salt and garlic powder will do.
If you want a little heat, use a pinch of chili powder otherwise garlic and salt are fine.
Coat the seeds with coconut oil or melted butter.
Spread the them evenly on a Non-Stick Cookie Sheet.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Stick the pan in the pre-heated oven. Eyeball it. When the seeds turn brownish, give it a stir and re-spread it again evenly in the pan.
Back to the oven it goes. Bake until golden and crispy. Usually, it takes about 35 to 45 minutes to roast them.
Put them in a Pretty Pumpkin Bowl
and dig in.
