This is a nice twist to pumpkin seeds. Every year I host a pumpkin carve and make this variety of pumpkin seeds, and everyone goes wild for the cinnamon flavor with the salt. Use the seasonings to taste--the amounts really depend upon how many seeds you get from your pumpkins.

Wow... I was actually nervous to try this But I had so many seeds this year that I figured "Why Not?" My whole family LOVED this recipe! My only complaint was not knowing how much salt or cinnamon to use... I had about 2 cups of seeds and I put them on a cookie sheet w/ foil. I didn't use any cooking spray. I sprinkled the enitre amount of seeds with cinnamon and I tried to cover most of the seeds. I was scared about the salt so I sprinkled about a tbs. of sugar over the seeds and than I lightly sprinkled the seeds w/ the salt (probably about a tsp of salt), than I cooked it for 10 mins, took it out.. stirred it around in the cookie sheet and put another heavy coating of cinnamon and this time added more salt than I did last time (probably more like a tbs) and I put it back in the oven for 20 more mins. I was surprised at how well the salt and cinnamon tasted w/ the seeds. I'm definatly making these from now on! Thanks Alison!


When I submitted this recipe I said I sprinkled the salt and cinnamon on librally and amounts were not given so FYI I usually sprinkle a healthy dose of cinnamon and sea salt all over the seeds. Hope this helps clarify a tad. If you don't get too much cinnamon add more if you put too much...add less it is all to taste. A smidge of sugar is also a nice addition.


I gave this recipe 5 stars because it was a great idea to build upon to your own tastes. I personally was not crazy about the original recipe. I took into account what some other review had said about adding extra cinnamon, so I had done that. I wanted to add sugar, but was concerned about them sticking together as on review said, so I sprinkled about 1/2 cup of sugar on them immediately after coming out of the oven and stirred quickly until cooled. Perfect! Sweet and cinnamon seeds. I also wouldn't do without the salt, but the original flavor was not for me.
