Stuck with left over pumpkin seeds?! I know how you feel, it seems a waste to chuck them but no idea what to do with them, happens all the time! But not anymore, just by adding some cinnamon, and other spices these can easily become you’re new favourite snack!!

Ingredients:
Pumpkin seeds from one pumpkin
1 1/2tsp Ground cinnamon
1tsp Nutmeg
1tsp Mixed spice
2tbsp Vegetable oil

Estimated time: 15minutes

Directions:

First the gross bit, you need to clean/wash the pumpkin seeds. Unfortunately the easiest way is to rinse in water and dry, or lay down on a tea towel to remove any bits of pumpkin.

Put the seeds into a small bowl and stir in the vegetable oil, make sure all of the seeds are coated.

Weigh out your spices into another bowl and mix well before stirring onto your pumpkin seeds. Give these a good stir so that they’re evenly coated.

Spread the seeds onto a tray lined with baking paper and bake in the oven at 170c for 10-12 minutes. Check the seeds after 5 minutes and give them a stir. The seeds will become a light golden colour when they are cooked and will be crunchy.

Allow the seeds to cool before eating! These will keep for ages in an airtight container and will be ready for any late night snacking or parties you might have!! These are also brilliant to cover cakes with, especially pumpkin cakes 🙂

I hope you all love these tasty things, they are so easy and can have the flavour changed easily just by using different spices! Enjoy everyone!! 🙂
