There's nothing that I love more than some pumpkin seeds. Well any kind of seeds to be honest. They are not only good for you but also full of flavor by themselves. I do like to try out new coatings for them too.
Here's a good recipe for you to try. I love this and hope you will too.
1 1/2 C Fresh Pumpkin Seeds (in their hulls)
1-2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1/2 + 1/4 tsp salt, divided
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Cinnamon
A few drops of maple flavoring
A few drops of liquid stevia
Separate pumpkin seeds and rinse well in a colander.
Place pumpkin seeds in covered container and fill with water. Add 1/2 tsp salt.
Soak seeds overnight.
Preheat oven to 300F
In small bowl whisk 1/4 tsp salt, maple syrup, olive oil, cinnamon, and maple flavoring.
Drain pumpkin seeds and toss with syrup mixture until evenly coated.
Spread seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden, stirring the pan every 10 minutes to ensure even cooking. Don't worry if they aren't crunchy right away, they'll crisp up once cool.
Allow seeds to cool, stirring occasionally to keep them from sticking to the pan or each other.
Enjoy them warm or cool completely before storing in an air-tight container.
