The seeds from the pumpkin can be roasted and become a wonderful crunchy snack that just happens to be low carb and healthy! Here I have mixed the seeds with pumpkin pie spice because, well, it seemed only right!

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.Roasted Pumpkin Seeds - a low carb healthy snack flavored with pumpkin pie spice

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. Roasted Pumpkin Seeds - a low carb healthy snack flavored with pumpkin pie spice

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

Leave to cool and enjoy this crunchy spiced low carb snack!Roasted Pumpkin Seeds - a low carb healthy snack flavored with pumpkin pie spice

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!
