Snack Time….Roasted Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds

pumpkin and sunflower sees

Snacks can be tricky particularly if you’re looking for something healthy and tasty that requires minimal effort. This is why roasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds are so good. Dare I say it, but it’s only possible to eat so much humus.

Roasted seeds are a great snack full of lots of things we all know we should be eating, good oils and protein.

I make this about once a week – generally I’m using the oven for something else so very little hassle for great rewards. You could even use these as part of a trail mix.

100 grams or so of pumpkin seeds and about the same of sunflower seeds

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6. Put the seeds on a flat tray and stick in the oven. Bake for about 5 minutes and then stir. They might need to go in for a few more minutes. Bake until brown but before they start to smoke.
  • Cool on the tray or on a plate.
  • Once cooled, put them in airproof container where they’ll keep crunchy for a week or so.
  • Enjoy!
