Spiced Pumpkin Seeds – 31 Days of Fall Flavors Recipe #6

Stop!!  Don’t throw out the seeds when getting those pumpkins ready to cook for puree or to carve for Halloween!  Toasted and tossed with a little bit of seasoning, they make a great healthy snack.  You can simply bake and toss with a little salt or try this recipe, which is one of my favorite pumpkin seed recipes from wholeliving.com.
