Sweet & Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Sweet & Spicy Pumpkin Seeds
Recipe by Dragon

Welcome to the #GreatHallowTweet Halloween BlogHop. This was the brain child of the fabulous Renee at Flamingo Musings. During this week leading up to Halloween a devilish group of bloggers are causing mayheim and carnage all over the interwebs. Be sure to visit my fellow ghouls and goblins and see what Halloween treats they have cooking.(The list is the under Great Hallow column on the left panel.)

My second contribution to this year's #GreatHallowTweet are these sweet and spicy pumpkin seeds. Be warned, these are addictive. I almost ate the entire bowl, but I showed my usual (ahem) restraint. What? It could happen. Enjoy!

Makes: 2 cups

1 egg white
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
sea salt to taste
2 cups raw pumpkin seeds

1. Preheat your oven to 350°.

2. Whisk the egg white, brown sugar, spices and salt in a medium bowl until foamy.

3. Add pumpkin seeds and toss well to coat evenly. Pour a single layer onto a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and crispy

I KNEW I should have picked up a bag of raw pumpkin seeds from the grocery. Ugh! I'll have to go back to get them and make these. Love, love pumpkin seeds and the spices sound like they would make me a happy couch potato. LOL. :)

Those sound delicious. I've never done them any way other than just plain old cooking spray and sea salt! A little spice is nice!

I've been making my own version of sweet/salty pumpkin seeds for the past few years. Can't get enough... which makes them a little bit dangerous :)
