I've been toasting pumpkins seeds for many years using this method - with only minor changes. First, I do not rinse the seeds at all - just get the big hunks of pumpkin and strings out - a little pumpkin on the seeds gives it flavor! Second, I spray my cookie sheet and seeds with Pam. Third, I've never measured the salt, just sprinkle salt as if you were salting fries to your own taste. (You can always add more after they're out of the oven) Fourth, I prefer a little cooler oven - 300 - and just wait until they smell fantastic and just barely golden brown. (45 mins to an hour) Turn the oven off and let them stay in the oven another 45 mins or so. Mmmmm.....

I followed the directions exactly and burnt the seeds. I'd suggest a lower temp or a shorter time.

Our pumpkin seeds turned out perfect! However, we did boil them first in heavily salted water until they all turned grey (about 20 minutes) then spread them on a cookie sheet, drizzled some olive oil over them and sprinkled about 1 T of sea salt. We stirred the seeds every 10-15 minutes to prevent burning - they'll get too brown fast so watch them!

Try this recipe with cinnamon, sugar, and salt. The salty-sweet mix is excellent! Also, instead of cooking oil, I used non-fat cooking spray to make it lighter. That worked just fine!

Pumpkin seeds SEEM like a no brainer, but they aren't. Mine always turned out funky. I used this recipe, however, and they were great! Of course I rinsed the seeds well and dried them first. I also used butter flavored cooking spray with mine. A+

Excellent and easy. I sprayed vegetable oil on them and I used sea salt which gives a robust salty taste. I say it took 20 mins. for the seeds to brown.

Very tasty! I made three kinds of seeds last night, my husband & I rated these #2, our 12 year old #3, & our 11 year old #1. I used butter flavored pam cooking spray vs. the oil. Thanks Onemina!

These turned out good. I like them fresh out of the oven. I used olive oil cooking spray instead of drizzling oil over them. Also, mine only took 20 minutes to toast. They started getting dark very quickly. Thanks Onemina for a quick and yummy recipe!
