Cinnamon & Sea Salt Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

You know that one snack that you always eat way too much of... This one is it for me. Hands down my favorite snack, in fact I'm eating them as I write this post. 

Pumpkin seeds have a great macro profile for keto diets as well. They are ~76% fat with 1 net carb per serving (1 ounce) making them super keto friendly. Add in the coconut oil and now you're really cooking with gas. Pumpkin seeds also have a ton of nutritional value and health benefits including: 

  • Great source of Magnesium and Zinc
  • Anti-Inflammatory 
  • Rich in Omega 3 fatty acid 
  • Good for your heart and liver 
  • Immunity Support 
  • Improved Prostate and Bladder Health 
  • Lowering Blood Sugar
  • Improves Sleep

Difficulty: Easy | Prep Time: 5 Minutes | Total Time: 20

Cooking instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°
  2. Heat coconut oil until it's liquid. 
  3. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl and stir until everything is evenly coated. 
  4. Mix in the melted oil and vanilla extract and stir until evenly coated.**
  5. Spread evenly across a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until brown. I do mine at 17 minutes on the dot, but BE CAREFUL they can burn quickly if you don't pay attention and every oven is a bit different. 
  6. Let cool and enjoy. It's as easy as that. 

*Mixing the dry ingredients BEFORE the liquid ingredients helps prevent any clumping and forming balls of cinnamon.
