After Halloween Fall Snack – Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Seeds

Now that it’s November, Halloween is officially over! With all those leftover pumpkins and pumpkin seeds, we need to give them a purpose! Last year, we shared a simple recipe for savory pumpkin seeds, this year, we will share a sweet recipe for the Fall time!

We think cinnamon is a perfect complement to pumpkin seeds. The recipe we’re going to share with you today is easy and fun to make. The aroma of cinnamon and sugar is sure to bring the cozy, fuzzy feeling to your home. Keep reading for the recipe!

From Oh Nuts

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds (raw and washed)
  • 1/2 tbs ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar (white or brown)
  • 1 tbs melted butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. While the oven is heating up, line a cookie/baking sheet with parchment paper.

Coat the seeds with the melted butter in a bowl. Once evenly coated,  sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar and mix. Spread evenly onto the cookie sheet (no overlapping seeds!) and bake for about 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes, sprinkle another layer of cinnamon and sugar on top, spread out,  and bake for another 5 minutes. Repeat until the cinnamon and sugar are used up. For the last trip to the oven, bake the seeds for 10 minutes and cool before serving.

This treat is not just good for after Halloween, but all Fall long! The cinnamon flavor is perfect for the upcoming holiday season coming up. Try the recipe and tell us how it goes. If you know more pumpkin seed recipes, please share them with us!
