When you're carving this year’s Halloween jack-o-lantern, be sure to save the pumpkin seeds to enjoy as a yummy snack later on! For this recipe, we used a delicious combination of sugar and ground cinnamon to infuse our seeds with a sweet, autumnal flavor.



  1. Preheat the oven to 300˚ F. Using a spoon, scrape the pulp and seeds out of your pumpkin into a bowl.
  2. Separate the seeds from the stringy pump, rinse the seeds in a colander under cold water, then shake dry. Don’t blot with paper towels; the seeds will stick.
  3. Spread the seeds in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet and roast 30 minutes to dry them out.
  4. Toss the seeds with olive oil, cinnamon and sugar. Return to the oven and bake until crisp and golden, about 20 more minutes.
