This is the time of year when everyone is starting to carve pumpkins. Me included. But don't toss out those pumpkin seeds!

Roasted pumpkin seeds make an amazing seasonal snack. The seeds from the pumpkin can be roasted and become a wonderful crunchy snack that just happens to be low carb and healthy too!

Here I have tossed the fresh pumpkin seeds with a yummy pumpkin pie spice for a totally delicious keto friendly snack.

How to Make Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Scoop out the seeds from the pumpkin and pull off all the “guts”. From one large pumpkin I managed to collect about 1½ cups of seeds.

Place the pumpkin seeds in a bowl and cover in warm water. Leave for about 15 minutes and use a slotted spoon to lift out the seeds – this process will soak off any remaining pumpkin.

Place the seeds in a saucepan of boiling water, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes. This will help even cooking when the seeds are roasting.

Drain the seeds. In a bowl, mix together olive oil and pumpkin pie spice. Add the seeds, salt and black pepper, then mix well to coat.

Spread the spiced seeds out onto a baking tray lined with a silicone mat.

Roast in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, shaking the seeds half way through cooking to turn as many as possible.

I love roasted pumpkin and squash seeds, Georgina! Unfortunately, I'm the only one in the family who eats them. I usually just rub them in oil and salt them - classic but broing. I can't wait to try this pumpkin pie spiced version. Thanks!

What a great idea to actually use the pumpkin seeds! So far, I've always just chucked them in the bin. We're big at pumpkin carving over here, and that time of the year is just around the corner. I'll let my kids get on with it while I shall roast and snack on pumpkin seeds!
