Snack Time….Roasted Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds


Snacks can be tricky particularly if you’re looking for something healthy and tasty that requires minimal effort. 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!
