Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

As you can see from the previous post, I made my brownies using freshly made pumpkin puree.  What's another byproduct of pumpkins?  Pumpkin seeds!  Here is a quick way to make a nice snack out of the innards of your pumpkin.

(Side Note: When I brought these over to my neighbors house, NONE of them had eaten pumpkin seeds before.  What deprived people....)

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

  • Seeds from one pie pumpkin (adjust the rest of the ingredients depending on what kind/size of pumpkin you use)
  • 3 tablespoons of butter (unsalted), melted
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher Salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, pour melted butter over clean pumpkin seeds.  Toss together with kosher salt and black pepper.
  3. Spread out on a prepared baking sheet and cook for about 20 minutes, or until the seeds look "roasted" and are crisp when you bite into them.
