|Cinnamon Raisin Pumpkin Seeds|
These are not like the jack-o-lantern variety of pumpkin seeds . They are much smaller and don't have the shell on. They are high in zinc so they make a great snack without the junk food guilt. I usually bake the pumpkin seeds plain and then add season salt.
Since we had a plethora of pumpkin seeds I decided to make two batches, one savory and one sweet. I lined two cookie sheets with foil and olive oil. Then I put a single layer of pumpkin seeds on each one. I sprinkled the first pan with cinnamon and the second pan with oregano and garlic salt.
I baked the pumpkin seeds for about 20 minutes or until they popped. When they cooled, I added raisins to the cinnamon batch. These would be great with nuts, cereal and dried fruit to make trail mix or sprinkled over yogurt. The "pizza" flavored seeds were a salty, crunchy treat. Another variation to try would be a cayenne, spicy blend. Happy Snacking!
