Sweet and spicy baked pumpkin seeds

The Best Baked Pumpkin Seeds

This is my favorite time of year because it’s getting cooler and there’s so many tasty things to make.  We carved(or “scarved” as Kaden says) our pumpkins the other night in front of the fireplace. Baked pumpkin seeds are of my of favorite snacks for this time of year. I found a really good recipe for sweet and spicy pumpkin seeds a few years ago and adapted it to make it mine and have been using that recipe ever since. They really aren’t spicy like the name says, but  they are sooo good. This year we had a lot of pumpkins so I ended up having to double the recipe, but that’s fine with me. More seeds! This is the best salty, crunchy snack ever!

The Recipe:

  • 2 cups Pumpkin seeds, rinsed and dried
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter, melted
  • 1 Tsp. Salt
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Brown sugar
  • 1 Tsp. Hot sauce (more or less to taste. I like like a little more.)


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil. Stir together butter and seeds in a bowl until evenly coated. Add salt, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and hot sauce and mix well. Spread in a single layer on baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes, until slightly browned and crispy.
