Roasted Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds

Roasted Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds


I love high protein, wholesome, healthy snacks on the go so this roasted seed mix is perfect for me.

This is how I make them: I bake the seeds, needing no oil as they cook in their own, adding a little salt and I either enjoy them as a snack (yummy with wine), or scatter them on salads or over coconut yogurt for breakfast.

You can season with chilli flakes, paprika, cinnamon, honey (maybe not all at the same time but that could work) so go experiment and find out what you like. Sometimes, in the last 5 minutes of cooking, I add some white sesame seeds to offer a little sweetness. Delicious.
