this year i didn't get too festive with halloween. instead i carved a pumpkin and decided to dress my pumpkin seeds up! if you like spicy and sweet try this out!
2 tablespoons white sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cumin, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1 pinch cayenne pepper (or add more if you want it extra spicy), 2 cups raw whole pumpkin seeds (washed and dried), cooking spray, 1 teaspoons salt, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons of sugar, the cumin, cinnamon, ginger, and cayenne pepper, and set aside.
- Place the pumpkin seeds on the baking sheet with parchment paper, spray them with cooking spray. Bake the seeds in the preheated oven until lightly golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
- Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, and stir in the toasted pumpkin seeds with 1 tablespoons of brown sugar . Cook and stir the seeds until the sugar forms a coating on the seeds (2 to 3 minutes). Stir the caramelized seeds into the bowl of sugar-spice mixture and voila!
