Pumpkin seeds are the best! Not only do you get to scoop them out of a pumpkin in all their slimy glory, you then get to bake them and enjoy a super healthy, tasty treat! That is…if you cook them right!

There is a secret to getting perfectly crisp, toasty pumpkin seeds. What is it…well…it’s simple. You boil them before you bake them!

That’s it!

  • Start by cleaning the pumpkin seeds. Take your time and clean them off really well. By doing so, you will end up with much crispier seeds in the end.
  • Cover the pumpkin seeds with water and bring them to a boil.
  • Next you will drain the seeds.
  • Place them in a bowl and coat them with a little olive oil and sea salt.
  • Then lay them on baking sheets in a thin layer. I had about 6 or 7 cups of seeds and used 2 half sheet pans lined with parchment paper. They will bake up crispier if you don’t over crowd the pan or over lap them.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes tossing them every 10 minutes and being careful not to brown them.
  • Test the pumpkin seeds to check for doneness.
  • They should be dry, crisp and the inside seed should not be brown, it should be a green color.
