Caramelized Pumpkin Seeds
Next time you bring a pumpkin home‚ don’t waste those seeds! Roasting them up in sweet spices and warming Maca Powder creates the perfect seasonal snack.
Seeds from 1 medium pumpkin (about 1½ cups)
Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add the pumpkin seeds, and boil for one minute. Drain, then pat dry with kitchen towels.
Transfer the seeds to a medium bowl, and add the coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of Coconut Palm Sugar, Maca Powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1/8 teaspoon sea salt. Toss until seeds are evenly coated. Spread the seeds out onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Roast for 18-22 minutes, tossing a couple times while cooking to avoid burning. Remove from oven when crispy and toss with remaining teaspoon of Coconut Palm Sugar. Let cool to room temperature.
Makes 1 1/2 cups
