A simple and healthy roasted pumpkin seeds snack everyone will love, that can be changed with your favourite spices!


  • 1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds from a small pumpkin all pulp removed, but no need to wash them
  • 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp paprika powder
  • a pinch of sea salt


  1. Mix the fresh pumpkin seeds in a bowl with the oil and spices. 

  2. Spread the seeds evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  3. Bake in oven at 375 F for 15-18 minutes.

  4. Remove from oven and wait 10 minutes before eating.

  5. **Even if they don't look really roasted, resist the urge to roast them longer or you risk burning the seed inside.**
