Roasted Pumpkin Seeds (Whole30 Friendly)

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Whole30Happy (almost) Halloween!  We did not get around to carving our pumpkins this weekend, so our plan is to get it done after school today!  I thought it would be fun to share our recipe for roasted pumpkin seeds with you today, in case you’re looking for a simple fall activity…  

When you carve your pumpkin do you save the seeds?  It can be a little extra work to clean them up but worth the effort.  (Or you can purchase raw pumpkin seeds from the bulk section at the grocery! #momhack)  

Check out the recipe below!  You can also play with different seasonings and spices to customize them to your liking.  To make them Whole30 friendly, I used Ghee (instead of butter), and along with s+p, I used  couple of my favorite compliant seasonings; Paleo Powder Pink and Morton and Bassett Italian.  When Stephanie came over to photograph, she had the idea these would make a good alternative to popcorn, as something to crunch on while movie-watching…spooky movie anyone?!
