    Yum! Had roasted off several pumpkins and wanted to do something different with the seeds, this fits the bill. Great!
    Great spicy seeds but to lower calorie count you can skip the oil if you use them right out of the pumpkin. If you don't bake them right away, give them a little spritz of cooking spray before putting them in the oven. Yum!
    Amazing just follow the recipe and its great. So good and perfect as it is.
    I added lime juice, and garlic powder. sooooo good
    I add these to popcorn and we take it to our Tampa Bay Rays games ( you can take your own food) Makes a great snack and all our friends around us want some. Thanks Bobby
    These were ok. I used olive oil instead of canola. Maybe just basic salt and slow roast on the frying pan is still old fashion and good.
    Everyone loves these...even my nephew who never likes anything "new"
