Sugared Pumpkin Seeds Recipe


For a unique spin on pumpkin seeds, try these yummy treats. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Separate pumpkin seeds from stringy pumpkin bits. Discard stringy pumpkin insides and rinse seeds. Dry rinsed seeds a little bit with a clean dishtowel and set aside.

Beat 2 egg whites with hand mixer until frothy.

After egg whites are frothy, add:

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup white sugar

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Dash of freshly ground nutmeg

Mix well.

Stir in pumpkin seeds. If you like, toss in a cup of pecans as well for a fun touch.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper and spread pumpkin seeds onto baking sheet.

Bake seeds for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring every 10-15 minutes. Sugar coating will harden as seeds cool.

These are great on superfood salad.

Bonus: The taste of these reminds me of a cereal. I cannot figure out which one though. When you make these, if you can figure out which cereal it is please post it.

    I made these and they are SOOOOO good, I could not stop eating them. Now a week later my 5 yo daughter says, while we were riding in the car today, “I LOVE pumpkin seeds, they are my favorite MEAL!!!” It totally cracked me up, she would never eat them before so it has to be your recipe. Thanks again!
