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

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 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.
