- Pumpkin seeds
- Cooking spray, olive oil, or butter
- Optional: Salt, garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, or other seasoning of choice
Preheat oven to 250 F. Line a baking sheet with non-stick foil.
Toss pumpkin seeds in olive oil, butter, or spray with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt, garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, cayenne pepper, or your choice of seasonings. Toss to coat.
Bake about 1 hour, tossing every 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.
Cool pumpkin seeds before eating. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 months or refrigerate up to 1 year.
If you like your toasted pumpkin seeds extra-salty, soak overnight in a solution of 1/4 cup salt to 2 cups of water. Dry an additional day, then proceed as above.
Note: Pumpkin seeds are also known as pepitas.
