Pumpkin Spice Seeds Recipe

How I came to create my Pumpkin Spice Seeds Recipe; I love pumpkin carving; it is one of my favourite Halloween activities! Last year I got a fright when I read a British report claiming that nearly two-thirds of consumers buy pumpkins to hollow out and carve at Halloween; however, only one-third of these consumers make something edible out of the pulp and delicious seeds. That is a scary amount of food waste!


To ensure that I made the absolute most out of my pumpkins this year and cut down on my pumpkin waste, I decided to create some delicious recipes.
The first tasty recipe is the Pumpkin “Spice” Seeds. When removed from the flesh of a pumpkin, the seeds can be rinsed and roasted. When covered in cinnamon, these nutrient-filled seeds are a great snack to nibble on throughout the day or perfect when sprinkled on your morning porridge.


Pumpkin seeds have many benefits; They are high in antioxidants, which can help with inflammation, and an awesome magnesium source, which is important for heart and bone health. Not only are you helping cut down on waste, but by making these Pumpkin “Spice” Seeds, you are making a scrumptious snack.

I hope you enjoy the recipe and if you recreate, we would love for you to share it with us.
