Pumpkin Pie Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Although this may not be a traditional dish to bring to your Thanksgiving celebration, I figured there's plenty of inspiration out there on the blogosphere right now, I would rather give you something unique and special. Like these pumpkin pie spiced pumpkin seeds.

If you're a canned pumpkin type of person, that's okay, but when you're whipping up your pumpkin pie this year I highly recommend switching gears and going with fresh pumpkin instead. Why? Not only does fresh pumpkin elevate the flavor and texture of your pumpkin pie, it's full of fabulously healthy and delicious seeds.

I know they throw some people off, but those guts inside your pumpkin might just be the best part. They feel totally disgusting, but pumpkin seeds are actually super easy to clean, and once roasted, they taste simply divine. Plus, pumpkin seeds are crazy healthy – low-calorie, high in fiber, and full of protein – so they're a perfect snack. Especially for Thanksgiving.

This recipe celebrates my love for pumpkin pie, but in a healthy and nutritious way. I could snack on these Pumpkin Pie Spiced Pumpkin Seeds all year round, but they are a perfect pre- or post-Thanksgiving dinner treat. In two days time, we're going to be stuffing ourselves to the brim, with delicious, but decadent food. So why not sprinkle in some nutrients, and bring these Pumpkin Pie Spiced Pumpkin Seeds with you? They'll be gobbled up in no time.

  1. Ohhh…I love this idea! I eat a lot of pumpkin seeds during the season and have only really done one type of seasoning on them (paprika). These look delicious. Happy Thanksgiving!
