I never understood why people would throw out the pumpkin seeds when carving a jack-o-lantern! Pumpkin seeds are filled with crucial vitamins and minerals, as well as a good deal of protein. And the fact that they are so delicious and easy to roast, this is the recipe you need to try.
Coconut Maple Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
- 1 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon shredded coconut
Scoop out the seeds of a pumpkin. Place seeds in a large bowl, rinse out the pulp and strings. Wait for pumpkin seeds to rise to the top and place in colander to rinse off extra pumpkin pulp.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Place coconut oil in large saucepan and melt. Add pumpkin seeds and constantly stir for about 10 minutes until light brown. *Stirring is necessary to prevent burning*
Remove the seeds from heat. Add maple syrup, cinnamon and shredded coconut. Mix well until thoroughly coated.
Place pumpkin seeds on baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes making sure to stir every 10 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
