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!

  1. I have never had roasted pumpkin seeds. These are really good! Just pulled them out of the oven about 15 minutes ago!! Thanks!

  2. Just popped these in the oven….I also sprinkled some chipotle powder on em! Very excited since all your recipes I have made so far (I'm a new reader and so far have done 5) have been excellent!

  3. Ohh these look so tasty! I can't wait to carve a pumpkin and make these myself! =)

  4. Yeah, I found pumpkin seeds in recipe builder. I couldn't find anything that said with or without shell. It just said pumpkin seeds–1 tsp (5g) 1 point.

  5. Were you loOking on recipe builder? With the shell on?

  6. I was wondering how you figured out the Points+ value for these. I tried looking up pumpkin seeds on WW's website before and it was much higher than 2. I just didn't want to get all carried away and end up eating 15 Points in one sitting!
    BTW, I toss Chipotle Seasoning on mine and it adds a nice kick to it.

  7. Love pumpkin seeds! They are really good with Lawrys season salt too!

  8. I love roasted pumpkin seeds! I tried to make some the other day but forgot them in the oven until it was too late. Whoops.

    I am new here and love your blog. Following soon!

  9. One of the best things about Fall!

  10. one of my FAVORITE fall snacks!
