Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Halloween is one of my favourite days of the year. I absolutely love it. The pumpkins, the dressing up, the sweets. It’s one of the days that you’ll never truly outgrow. But did you know that pumpkin seeds are actually 100% edible and 100% delicious? All you need to o is season them and roast them off and voila! A great snack!

This is also a great activity to do with kids! After carving a pumpkin, little ones will love getting their hands in all the inside and separating out the seeds. After a while though, it does get a little  bit tedious so you might have to finish off the job! The seeds roast best if they are fully separated and washed/ dried. Happy Halloween!
