Homemade Pumpkin Seeds - Greater Austin Moms

Some people get pumpkins to decorate, some to carve, some for pies and some for the seeds.  This past weekend we were all about the seeds!  Pumpkin seeds a packed with nutritional benefits for both you and your kids so you can feel great about them disappearing quickly.

Not impressed with my past attempts at a cinnamon sugar recipe, I went on the hunt for a new version and found this recipe for Cinnamon Toast Pumpkin Seeds from Fountain Avenue Kitchen.  Her tip for saving the sugar for after the roasting was key (although I think next time I might also add a little butter afterwards too)!  We made a batch and poof it was gone.  Looks like we will need to get ourselves another pumpkin.

Looking for a more traditional flavor?  Try this one from The Girl Who Ate Everything, or this one from Beauty and the Beard.
