When I wrote about my sweet and salty roasted chickpeas, I never expected that the recipe would become one of the most popular on my cupcake blog. I guess that we cupcake lovers understand that we need some simple and satisfying healthy food options now and again. This year, I bring you a similar recipe for pumpkin seeds – sweet and salty toasted pumpkin seeds. There’s something about that sweet and salty combo that gets me every time. It’s so addictive!
Brown sugar, cinnamon, sprinkle of salt, and melted butter come together with the toasted flavor of the seeds themselves to create pumpkin seeds that remind me of campfires, herbal tea, popcorn, and sweet potatoes.
