Works okay, but I found it better to simmer seeds in salt water first. I then lightly dried seeds by spreading seeds on sheet pan and placing in oven that was brought to 300 degrees and then shut off. I found that dry seeds hold butter and oil better for the baking process. When baking seeds I used 1 tbs of unsalted butter melted and a few drops of EVOO and mixing in bowl (3 cups of seed). After baking at 300 for approx. 30 minutes I removed from oven and coated with nutritional yeast and a hint of sugar. The salted water adds plenty of salt, especially as these were primarily going for the kids.
Nutritional yeast is a healthy alternative to salt and butter and toppings with weird additives. An additional hint: I found that if I bake on a silpat sheet it is not necessary to stir seed during baking as they brown equally well on bottom.
