Roasted Squash Seeds

Roasted Squash Seeds PinThis Roasted Squash Seeds recipe is a great use for your pumpkin, acorn, butternut and other squash seeds. We used to throw them out! Now we enjoy them as a healthy snack!

Pumpkin seeds are the best because the seeds are larger and there’s more of them in a regular sized pumpkin. However, you can roast seeds from any type of squash.

Most recipes call for oil, but you don’t need oil to roast these. Just stir in your favorite seasonings while the seeds are still damp and bake them on a Silpat or baking sheet until they’re crunchy.

This is a simple recipe using only garlic salt and chili powder. But we also like them with garlic powder instead of garlic salt, onion powder, turmeric and cayenne pepper. They would be great with chipotle seasoning if you have it.
