Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, a Kids Recipe for Fun!

Everyone Loves to Eat Halloween Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Eat Anytime; especially around Halloween!

The healthiest munchies around the Halloween holiday have got to be Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, with every kid wanting to snack on them. They have a crunchy texture and a slightly sweet and nutty flavor that gets topped with a dash of salty goodness; they just can't be beat! They are also a wonderful break from all of that Halloween candy that kids gather during the evening trick-or-treat treasure hunt.

Important Pumpkin Seed Recipe Note!

Make sure you have a grown-up around when you are carving your jack-o-lantern and roasting your seeds. They will help you be safe when using a carving knife and can answer any of your questions about the seed recipe! Besides, it's more fun to do things together!

Pumpkin Seed Recipe Ingredients and Gear

Most of the time we buy pumpkin seeds at the store...

...because that's how they come, right? No Way! Whenever you cut a pumpkin open to make a jack-o-lantern, just save all of those wonderful gooey seeds. You can ask your neighbors and family and friends to save theirs for you as well. Once you have your seeds ready and waiting, try this kid friendly fun and easy Roasted Pumpkin Seed recipe.

What you will need to get started making your roasted seeds:

INGREDIENTS:

  • Seeds from one large pumpkin
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 TBL Vegetable oil

Equipment needed:

  • Carving knife
  • Paper towels
  • Medium bowl
  • Cookie sheet
  • Big sturdy scooping spoon
  • Strainer

5 Kid Friendly Steps to Tasty Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

  1. Cut open your pumpkin and using a really big and sturdy spoon, scrape out all of the pumpkin seeds and put them in a strainer. Rinse them off really good with water. This helps to get all of that stringy stuff off of your seeds. Now, spread out your clean seeds on a couple of paper towels for a few hours so they can dry.
  2. When your seeds have dried, turn the oven on to preheat, 250°F.
  3. Put all of the seeds in the bowl and add the oil and a little bit of salt. You can add other spices for flavor if you want; like garlic powder, or onion powder, or cumin, or poultry seasoning, or chili powder, and even a little soy sauce! Mix this stuff all together so the seeds get some of the oil and flavoring coated on each of them.
  4. Spread the seasoned seeds evenly on a cookie sheet. Spread them out so they make only a single layer. You don't want any seeds to be on top of any other seeds or they wont get as crispy. Bake the seeds for about an hour until they get a deep golden brown color on the edges. To help make the time go faster, be sure to stir the seeds around every fifteen minutes or so. This also helps every seed get roasted as evenly as possible.(Sometimes it takes a little less time for them to cook, and sometimes it takes a little longer, so be patient. It's worth the wait!)
  5. Take the seeds out of the oven and allow them to cool for at least 10 minutes, and then you can start munching away on them.

How to Get Those Stringy Pumpkin Seeds Really Clean!

(Use these directions instead of rinsing and straining the seeds as directed in step 1 above.)

If you have more time and patience, a really good way to get the seeds VERY clean before baking them, is to boil them in salty water until the gooey stuff comes completely off of the seeds. Some people think the seeds are better without any pumpkin meat on them, while others like the added flavor and texture of the pumpkin meat on their seeds. It is entirely up to you and your adult helper to choose your favorite cleaning method. Maybe you can try it both ways, as a Roasted Pumpkin Seed flavor experiment!

Very Cool Pumpkin Carvings

How Do You Eat Your Roasted Pumpkin Seeds?

Some people eat their roasted pumpkin seeds shell and all, while others "pop" each shell open like a bird, and eat just the yummy seed inside. I like to eat the seed only. Sometimes the shell is fun to suck-on to enjoy the salty seasonings, but the shells are a little tough for me to enjoy chewing-up and eating. I always feel like the stickery-sharp points of the shells get caught in my teeth and throat, and I just don't like the way that feels. And, for me, the fun of "popping" the seeds open is the best part to eating these healthy, but oh, so yummy roasted pumpkin seeds!

Important Pumpkin Seed Seasoning Tip

Just one last suggestion, and it's about seasoning your seeds. When you are adding your seasonings to the seeds before baking them, be sure to only add enough salt to flavor the seeds. If too much salt gets on the seeds they won't be very good at all. Too much salt makes your lips get all dry and sometimes makes the tip of your tongue feel like it is burning or has been rubbed raw like a blister. So, if you want to totally enjoy your fresh baked crunchy pumpkin seeds, only use enough salt to flavor each seed just a little, after eating a bunch of seeds, you will see that you didn't need all that much salt at all!

We love pumpkin (and sunflower) seeds also, so when this time of the year rolls around, we jump at the chance to start roasting our own! I hope you and your hubby do try them, it is a fun and easy project to do together! Loved finding your comments here today, thank You!

I am pumpkin seeds lover too! Very true, to have crispy baked seeds, it must be dried first before baked. Very informative with the nutrient chart and definitely a great hub!

anglnwu~ I agree, the stringy junk is a real turn-off, but the kids seem to enjoy playing around with it. For us adults, boiling the seeds really helps to remove the extra pumpkin slime. Just make sure that your kids know that it takes a little longer to get to the munching part! Thanks for sharing your remarks here today!

Cheers~

Gordon! We are so often on the same wavelength! I think this is a great way to use eatable compostables as well. I sure do get a big grin when I see you have made it by; thanks my dear friend for that! I too suffer from no will power in the face of a bowl of roasted seeds! You know, I hadn't thought to try other squash seeds, but I sure will be roasting them up from now on! Super good tip, thank you for sharing it here with us. Was wonderful to see you had stopped by today!

K9 - amazing!!!

I love seeds from pumpkins and squashes. I do, however, have a major problem with them - I can't stop eating them until there are none left! :) I love your tip about asking neighbours to save their seeds as well. Wholly practical and saves on waste!! ;)

Congratulations, my friend,

DzyMsLizzy~ Thanks for stopping by! And for the email (smooch!) If you have the time and don't mind waiting, try boiling the seeds for a while then dry them (overnight). Then once they are dry, bake them. This gets them much cleaner and crispier. Baking the pumpkin seeds Low and Slow is most important.

Sorry to hear about your hubby...I would be interested in the story should you decide to share it at some point. Thanks again DML...

Hmm...now...I tried this once, but did something wrong, and they did not get crisp--came out like rubber bands.

I'll have to try your recipe, and pass them out to the grandkids...hubby can't eat seeds/nuts anymore, thanks to (a very long story) Medi-CAL.

Really cool! I forgot about the roasted pumpkin seeds! Oh this sure brings back fond memories! I haven't celebrated halloween since I was around 8 yrs old. I remember that my sisters showed me how to roast them and it was fun. I loved the taste after they are ready to eat. We use to add raisins and almonds with the pumpkin seeds for a after school snack. I voted up! Thanks for bringing a smile to my heart. :) Blessings!

leahlefler~ I love going to the pumpkin farm. We have one near where I used to live that had a big pumpkin patch and a "homemade" shop. They offered canned goodies and fruits and all kinds of things that are hand created; i loved that place! They would have a scarecrow contest, and carving contest, and even gave hay rides during the holiday season. It was (is) called The Book Family Farm off of Hwy 99, in Butte County, California. Well worth the trip.

Thank you for your comments! And I hope you enjoy your roasted seeds this year!

Roasted pumpkin seeds are so good! We are definitely roasting our seeds again this year - thanks for the easy how-to guide! I like them shelled, too - I've had too many root canals to chew through those tough outer shells! We're off to the pumpkin farm this weekend - time to start planning those jack-o-lanterns. Congrats on your hub of the day!


K9keystrokes profile image

K9keystrokes 5 years ago from Northern, California Author

Cool! Very surprised to be Hub of the day! But quite thrilled! Thank you so much everyone for the wonderful comments and for sharing your own pumpkin seed tips! We generally boil ours before drying too, but when the kids are over we skip this part, as it seems little folks rarely have the time to wait for this step!

I hope each of you has fun with your family while making your own perosonal seasoning choices for your seeds. Maybe a new Family recipe is in the works!?

Happy October everyone!

HubHugs all around~

livelonger~ I have to say Halloween is one of my very favorite holidays! My "people" just love a good costume party, and all of that trickin' and treatin' can be quite fun! ;) ...Like you, we also boil the fresh pumpkin seeds in a brine first when we're not doing this as a holiday project with the kids. And you are right, it does remove the stringy stuff better and makes the seeds taste more salty all of the way into the actual seed itself (which I love, but my blood pressure does not). I can't wait to get carving and costuming this Halloween! Thank you for stopping by today, I always enjoy seeing you here! Big HubHugs!

Shalom my friend~

Another awesome Hub, K9! This is a great, easy-to-follow recipe. We've typically boiled the seeds first in a very salty brine (to salt it, but also to help get off the stringy stuff) and then bake it. However, your version probably is a bit sweeter, so we'll have to try it this year. Can't wait to carve up our pumpkins and enjoy the seeds!

Shalom!

Flora~ Nice to see you in the neighborhood! I love pumpkin seeds also! I put them (shelled of course) in salads and soups as wonderful texture and flavor enhancers. Our Kids (nieces and nephews) adore roasting them and carving jack-o-lanterns for the Halloween holiday. Ours rarely turn out as scary and cool as those in the video either, but just doing it together as a family project makes them cool enough for us! Thanks for the support!

I love roasted pumpkin seeds. I live in a condo and have no children, so no trick or treaters. Technically, I do not need to buy a pumpkin. But I do and carve it-not as fancy as the ones in the video-and roast the seeds.
