    Cinnamon-Sugar Pumpkin Seeds – Joy Bauer

    Discover the power of pepitas! These shell-less pumpkin seeds are not just a treat for the tastebuds, but also a nutritional powerhouse, boasting beneficial zinc for immunity, magnesium for headache relief, and a dynamic duo of protein and fiber to stabilize blood sugar, appetite, and mood. They shine in this cinnamon-y recipe, as well as in my spicy Chili-Roasted Pepitas. Whip up a batch and enjoy them solo, or sprinkle these crunchy gems over yogurt, oatmeal, salads, and baked goods. They even add a perfect finishing touch to soups, stews and chilis!

    • Prep time
    • Total Time

    This recipe makes 4 servings

    • • 1 cup raw pepitas
    • • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

    Preheat the oven to 325˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

    In a small bowl, combine the pepitas and oil and toss with a spoon to coat. Add the cinnamon, sugar, and salt and mix to combine. Lay the mixture out on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer and roast for about 10 minutes. If you’d like them a bit toastier and crunchier, remove from the oven, shake the seeds around, then put back in the oven for another 2 to 4 minutes. Watch closely so they don’t burn. Let cool and enjoy.

    A serving is ¼ cup.
