Spiced Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Did you save your pumpkin seeds? If you did (or can purchase some) you are in for a tasty healthy treat with this recipe. Pumpkin seeds offer a nutritional profile that can't be beat, including amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids, and a wealth of minerals. They are high in most of the B vitamins, and vitamins C, D, E, and K. They are rich in beta carotene that can be converted into vitamin A as needed by the body, and also rich in the eye protective carotenoid lutein.

Snacking on just one-quarter cup of pumpkin seeds provides a whopping 16 grams of body building protein, along with substantial amounts of manganese, phosphorous, iron, copper and zinc. It also provides 45% of the daily value recommended for magnesium, the master mineral in which most Americans are deficient. And did you know that pumpkin seeds are packed with l-trytophan, the relaxing amino acid in turkey. A handful of pumpkin seeds contain even more L-tryptophan than a whole turkey dinner.

1 cup pumpkin seeds (clean and dry)
2 tsps coconut oil
2 tsps pumpkin pie spice, or

1t cinnamon
1/4t nutmeg
1/4t cloves
1/4t ginger
1/4t allspice, or

Just 2t cinnamon if you prefer

1/4 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt (optional but recommended)

(As always, The Best Years in Life recommends choosing organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, wash all fruits and vegetables before cutting or adding to the recipe.)

 

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Add coconut oil to seeds by mixing in a bowl or placing seeds directly on a lined baking tray and drizzling with the oil.
3. Sprinkle pumpkin spice onto the seeds and roast for 5-10 minutes, stirring halfway through. Look for seeds to take on a golden color.
4. If adding salt, sprinkle it on immediately after you’ve removed the seeds from the oven.
