For a unique spin on pumpkin seeds, try these yummy treats. Preheat oven to 250°F.

  • Pumpkin seeds from two sugar pumpkins (or carving pumpkins)
  • 1 cup pecans (optional)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Dash of freshly ground nutmeg

Separate pumpkin seeds from stringy pumpkin bits. Discard stringy pumpkin insides and rinse seeds. Dry rinsed seeds a little bit with a clean dishtowel and set aside.

Beat egg whites until frothy. Then stir in remaining ingredients until seeds are well-coated.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper and spread pumpkin seeds onto a baking sheet.

Bake seeds for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring every 10-15 minutes. Sugar coating will harden as seeds cool.

These are great on salads.
