For a more decadent version, I also have Smokey BBQ Spiced Roasted Pumpkin Seeds. To use the rest of the pumpkin, this week I also made homemade pumpkin puree to use in some pumpkin recipes I have planned in the next few days because apparently pumpkin puree is not easy to come by!

I used the seeds from my small pie pumpkins to make this snack, which by the way is naturally gluten-free and vegan. Oh and addicting!

I have fond childhood memories of my mom roasting the pumpkin seeds after we carved our jack-o-lanterns. We would help her make them, and help her eat them too. As an adult, I still love snacking on these crunchy roasted seeds. Nothing fancy, just tossed with some kosher salt and lightly sprayed with a little olive oil. Some people peel the skin off, but I eat them skin and all!
