This recipe makes a great snack – it’s got a salty/sweet vibe to it with the perfect crunch. Pumpkin seeds are a superfood by themselves, but turmeric is the real star in this duo. It’s a super powerful anti-inflammatory with countless health benefits.
Turmeric Spiced Pumpkin Seeds
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
- 1 tsp avocado oil (or sub olive oil)
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp coconut sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt (I used pink Himalayan)
- 1/4 tsp ground pepper
Preheat oven to 325. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Spread out in a thin layer on a sheet pan and bake for 5-7 minutes, until just barely browned. Watch them closely because they can burn quickly. Let cool and store in an airtight container.
