Sugar and Spice Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

This is a delicious unique variation of toasted pumpkin seeds. Easy to prepare and hard to mess up. Once you start eating them, you won't be able to stop!


1 cup (4 servings)


1 cup raw pumpkin seeds, rinsed and dried
6 tablespoons granulated (white) sugar, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil


Preheat the oven to 250°F (121°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Spread pumpkin seeds in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Toast for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until dry and toasted. Larger seeds may take longer.

In a large bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons of sugar, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Set aside. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pumpkin seeds and sprinkle the remaining 4 tablespoons of sugar over them. Stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar melts, about 45 seconds. Pour seeds into the bowl with the spiced sugar and stir until coated. Allow to cool before serving.
