Cinnamon & Sugar Baked Pumpkin Seedz! {Recipe}

Cinnamon & Sugar Baked Pumpkin Seedz {RECIPE!}

A few days ago I wrote that I was planning to participate in the Mamma Chia pumpkin carving Instagram contest, well life got in the way and that didn't happen. However, I did get in the autumn spirit and baked up some pumpkin seedz! I experimented in the kitchen and created a very easy and delicious recipe for cinnamon & sugar baked pumpkin seedz! Pumpkin seedz have many health benefits, I found this photograph on Instagram and thought I would share:

Pumpkin seedz are one of my favorite fall treats and there are so many ways to spice them up! I also attempted on a hot & spicy flavor but they didn't come out too good. Look out for a perfected recipe of those bad boys soon!

RECIPE:
I used 4 pumpkins (2 small, sugar varieties and 2 large varieties)
Cut a square around the top of the pumpkin and then scooped all the seedz out, separating the seedz from the pulp and then rinsing the seeds in a strainer
Soak the seedz in warm water for 4-5 hours


Strain the seedz and add ingredients:
2tbsp cinnamon (estimated value ~ I sprinkled a healthy helping onto the seeds)
1/4 cup AlterEco Organic Mascobado Cane Sugar (you may add less or more depending on your personal preference)
1tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix well and spread the pumpkin seedz evenly on a baking sheet and bake for one hour
Be sure to flip the pumpkin seedz around every 15 minutes, this will ensure the seedz are baked evenly!


Enjoy! 
These seedz are a perfect snack by themselves, great added to yogurt, on top of smoothies, or in trail mix! The possibilities are endless!

This is wonderful! I didn't realize soaking the seeds is important. How tasty to add the cinnamon/sugar, this is a must do!

I love pumpkin seeds, but I have never made them myself. This would be a wonderful project for a weekend. I am sure they are delicious.
